A message from Mr. Bragman...

As the Founding Principal of Scholarship Prep Charter School, it is my distinct honor to welcome you to our school.

At Scholarship Prep, our motto is “Reach Higher, Dream Bigger,” and it is an honor to be a part of a school community that works tirelessly to see that our students achieve greatness inside and outside of the classroom. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead Scholarship as we cultivate a community of scholars dedicated to excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts in the heart of Santa Ana. At Scholarship Prep, we are working to create a school that will provide pathways to successful futures in high school, college, and life after higher education. It is our goal to see that every Scholar that joins our school will one day receive a college scholarship, earn a degree, and give back to their community. Every one of our students at Scholarship receives a well-rounded learning experience that includes core subjects focusing on the Common Core State Standards using a variety of instructional strategies and project-based learning as key component of the instructional program, as well as world language instruction in Mandarin, and arts and athletics electives taught by experts in their fields.

We look forward to providing an amazing education for our Scholars and welcome our parents, families, and partners to join us working hand-in hand to promote the success of our students.

Thank you for your support and for welcoming Scholarship Prep into the Santa Ana community.
