Hello, I'm Jamie Dwight, of Florida Preparatory Academy. On behalf of the entire Florida Prep family, I welcome you to our school.

At Florida Prep we are proud to develop young men and women who blend academic ability, integrity and good character, along with a knowledge of world cultures, into a powerful force—well prepared for future success, growth, and leadership.

I am honored to celebrate my 25th year working at Florida Preparatory Academy and serving as President of this fine institution—founded by my father in 1961, with on a cornerstone of academic achievement, community, and family values.

As the foundation of our focus on 21st Century learning, Florida Preparatory Academy is proud to offer the 21st Century Skills & Values Program, a set of skills identified by employers as the essential attributes in every employee. With early goal-setting strategies, after-school academic assistance, and college planning and preparation throughout the year, Florida Prep students learn early the benefits of entrepreneurial skills, leadership, character and teamwork.

In addition, given Florida Prep has been a family-oriented school from day one, our students enjoy a unique nurturing atmosphere that pervades all aspects of school life.

As a multi-cultural school our contributions span well beyond Florida. Our Students come from 25 states throughout the U.S. and from more than 30 countries around the world. Each student leaves us with an appreciation of other regions and cultures, and develops far-reaching friendships that will last a lifetime. Each October we raise new country flags in the Hall of Flags, demonstrating the breath of our cultural diversity.

At Florida Preparatory Academy, the focus is the future and I hope your tour through this website will be the starting point for a long-lasting relationship with the Florida Preparatory Academy family.

Warm Regards,

James Dwight
