  4. A $30 returned check fee will be added to your account each time a check is returned to us from the bank. 

  5. Payment is due regardless of an illness or absence; this will maintain your child’s place at Prichard Preparatory School.

  6. Failure to comply will result in a request to the parents to withdraw their child from Prichard Preparatory School.


Prichard Prep accepts students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.  To be considered for Pre-Kindergarten, your child must turn four years old before October 1st of the upcoming school year. All rising Kindergarteners must turn five years old before October 1st, and all 1st graders must be six years old before October 1st.


If you would like your child to attend Prichard Prep, please call our office to schedule an appointment for a tour and admissions test (free of charge). We test  prospective students to ensure that each child works at or above grade level, and will likely have success with our rigorous curriculum. The Principal will call you to notify you of your child's test results.


Upon acceptance to Prichard Prep,  parents must pay the $200 registration fee to hold the child's spot. This fee also covers your child's workbooks, school supplies and technology fee. Families who do not pay the registration fee within two weeks of acceptance, may risk having your child lose his/her spot in the class.
