Celebrating 15 Years Of Big Dreamers

Coney Island Prep is celebrating 15 years of unwavering dedication to educational excellence. We invite you to join us in celebrating a legacy built on resilience, innovation, and a steadfast commitment to the futures of our scholars. Your donation will fuel the services, opportunities, and programs that have bolstered our dreamers for the past 15 years. This is particularly important as we send our graduating class off to college; your donations will provide essential college services, including academic advising, scholarship assistance, and career readiness programs.

Since our inception in 2009, we have been pioneers in education, breaking barriers and setting new standards for success. From our humble beginnings as the first charter school within public housing to our evolution into a comprehensive K-12 institution mentoring scholars through college graduation, each milestone has been marked by transformative growth and profound impact. As we reflect on our journey, we proudly highlight our achievements, such as the launch of the PRIDE Promise scholarship program, ensuring college access for all, and the establishment of robust after-school programs. Amidst unprecedented challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, we've adapted, persevered, and continued to serve our community with unwavering dedication.

Today, with nearly 500 alumni and graduation rates over five times the national average for first-generation, low-income students, our legacy of excellence shines brighter than ever. As we embark on the next chapter of our journey, we invite you to partner with us in shaping the future of education by making a donation. Your support will empower us to continue providing essential resources and opportunities for our scholars to thrive. Together, let's celebrate 15 years of excellence and pave the way for countless more milestones.
