Our goal is to prepare our students for their future in a reputable college where they can "hold their own" academically. The training that we give to them academically will produce a solid foundation to go forward into a world of success in any field they choose to enter.

The belief that all children can learn and develop socially, mentally, and physically is what Victory Rock Prep, Inc. is truly about. We feel that your child will COME IN AS A BOY and LEAVE AS A MAN. He will be more responsible, more receptive to learning, and more disciplined. Our mission is 100% college-bound and prepared to become a productive citizen. We will accept nothing less than the best from our young men.
