PEL PREP is a private ministerial association that does not function in the public domain  and does not serve the general public. Business is only conducted with members of the PMA who must sign and abide by a contract between the members and the trustees of the organization.

We are a group of families seeking Christian homeschool community which includes, academic support, socialization, spiritual guidance and holistic care. We meet three days a week at Compass Church in the beautiful town of East Northport.  Our association is blessed to support parents with a complete curriculum plan and the expertise of local educational mentors.


PEL Prep combines four distinctive elements:
Gospel-centered worldview
Classical curriculum
Collaborative Learning
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.

Math Homework

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.

Good Grades


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
