A message from Dr. Beam...

As the Principal of Scholarship Prep Charter School, it is my distinct honor to welcome you to our school.

At Scholarship Prep, our motto is “Reach Higher, Dream Bigger,” and it is an honor to be a part of a school community that works tirelessly to see that our students achieve greatness inside and outside of the classroom. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead Scholarship as we cultivate a community of scholars dedicated to excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts in our community of Oceanside. At Scholarship Prep, we are working to create a school that will provide pathways to successful futures in high school, college, and life after higher education. It is our goal to see that every Scholar that joins our school will one day receive a college scholarship, earn a degree, and give back to their community. As an educational psychologist and special educator, I have personally seen power of excellence in primary instruction in the lives of all learners.

We look forward to providing an amazing education for our Scholars and welcome our parents, families, and partners to join us working hand-in hand to promote the success of our students.

Thank you for your support and for welcoming Scholarship Prep into the Oceanside community.
