Welcome to Central Point Preparatory Academy—Home of the Sentinels! We opened our doors in August 2020 to provide a safe, secure learning environment for K-8 students in the Central Point, Franklinton & Hilltop neighborhoods of Columbus. We have big plans for meeting the needs of the Central Point community by providing a top-performing school of choice and other services to families.
We aim to provide a traditional, classical education with a Fine & Performing Arts focus. We believe that integration Arts instruction into all subject areas enriches the experience of learning and makes instruction memorable and relevant to each student.
We are excited that you are joining us in founding this very special community school. Thank you for choosing Central Point Preparatory Academy!
