Organizational Overview

Yellowstone College Prep (YCP) is a community school preparing community leaders. At Yellowstone, we inspire, empower, and invest in our students to achieve their highest potential and fulfill their intended purpose. Our model includes smaller class sizes  and a culturally relevant, interdisciplinary experience that includes rigorous academics, strong character education, and a focus on parent and community engagement.

 

Yellowstone College Prep operates on a beautiful Third Ward campus built in 1927 that is less than half a mile from downtown Houston. As part of its unique program, YCP is co-located with Yellowstone Academy, a private Christian school that serves students in preK3 through 5th grade. This innovate public/private hybrid is the first of its kind in the state of Texas. These two schools will operate through a shared services agreement as they leverage the Academy’s fifteen years of success and expand to serve 800 students in pre-K through 12th grade within the next five years.
