Founded in 1986, Harvest Preparatory School (HPS) was started in an effort to build a Christ-centered educational system in the Columbus, Ohio area. Harvest Preparatory School’s purpose is to increase students’ educational opportunities through a standard of excellence, a Christian commitment and a passion for success.
Now in its 31st year, HPS trains children in a distinctive, Christian, private education. Harvest Prep develops a diverse student body academically, spiritually, emotionally, morally, socially and physically through the power of God and our highly trained and Spirit-filled faculty and staff.
We train each student in a full range of academics, including the core courses of language, literature, writing, math (through Calculus), science (through Chemistry & Physics), and history as well as the enrichment studies of foreign languages (Spanish & Latin), music art, and drama. In addition, we have programs for some special needs students.
Achieving academic excellence and athletic prowess are important aspects of education for your child and Harvest Preparatory School offers your child both. But by far the most important part of a student’s education at HPS is our emphasis on maintaining a Christ-centered atmosphere.
Our Christian emphasis and chapel services alone set Harvest Prep apart from many other schools. All of our curricula are Christ-centered and are presented with a Christian worldview through scripture integration, devotions, weekly chapels and Bible courses. Our student body is made up of over 70 different area churches and we encourage each student to be involved at their home church.
We are very proud of our 145,000 square feet of facilities, which is located on 84 acres of land on the east side of Columbus. Our students are able to utilize these facilities which allow for quality classrooms and labs, after school activities, a state-of-the-art gymnasium with four full-sized basketball courts and a pro-turf football and soccer field and all-weather track, just to name a few!
It is our desire to educate students who will make a positive difference in their world and seek excellence in our academic and extracurricular programs.
