PEL Prep combines four distinctive elements:
Cultivation of joyful discovery
Each student is important to us at PEL Prep, and we see the part we play in their education as a true privilege. Read on to find out more about the benefits of our courses, or contact us to learn more.
PEL PREP will equip students to become discerning scholars, faithful leaders, compassionate servants, and instruments of light to the Long Island area and beyond.
PEL PREP seeks to partner with parents to prepare students for a lifelong pursuit of learning through classical methodology and joyful discovery; developing depth of character, wisdom, and a desire to engage their world for the glory of God.
PEL PREP is a Classical Christian Homeschool Community that meets three days a week at Compass Church in the beautiful town of East Northport. Our community is blessed to support parents with a complete curriculum plan and the expertise of local tutors.
To inspire each member of our community to live a life empowered by the gospel.
For the word of the Lord is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8
