Here at Legal Prep, we expect students to become advocates for their own education. As such, we expect all students to exemplify our Four Pillars:
LEADERSHIP - I will use my education to be a leader.
PERSEVERANCE - I will persevere through adversity, knowing that I control my destiny.
CHARACTER - I will live my life with courage and compassion. That's my character.
ADVOCACY - I will advocate for myself, my school, my community, and those who face injustice.
