Tri-City College Prep High School is a charter school providing students with a college prep curriculum as well as the opportunity to take college courses at the high school campus. The school opened in 1999 and has around 200 students enrolled per year.

Most students expressed just how much they love the school and teachers. Parents are very pleased with the way their children are learning and actually want to attend school. The best comment was about students having the option to take college classes while still in high school.
