Exemplary Programs
Prestige Academy prepares young men in grades 5-8 for admission to and success in demanding college preparatory high schools. In a highly structured, achievement-oriented school culture, Prestige Academy students develop a strong academic foundation in the core subjects and the REAL values necessary for success: Respect and Responsibility, Excellence in Behavior, Academic Mastery, and Leadership.

Prestige Academy is Delaware’s first same-gender public school. Prestige Academy was created to offer a tuition-free, public middle school alternative to boys in Wilmington and surrounding Delaware communities. In order to address the severe academic underperformance and low college matriculation rates of boys from these communities, the school offers a highly rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum supported by a structured school culture.

Curriculum Highlights
In order to support academic achievement, Prestige Academy Charter School provides double periods of literacy and math instruction daily, and extends the length of school days (7:30 AM to 4:00 PM) and the academic year (194 school days). We also enforce strict behavioral rules. We teach, model, and require all students to develop and demonstrate Prestige Academy’s REAL values: Respect and Responsibility, Excellence in Behavior, Academic Mastery, and Leadership through Service. Students wear uniforms, participate in community service, and benefit from a strong, no-excuses character education through which they are taught how to be Prestige Men. We involve parents as partners, and actively encourage all families to become involved in their child’s education through frequent communication, home visits, parent workshops, and school contracts.
