I have to find a school where I know he's going to feel welcome, where he's going to feel at home, where they're going to love him and take care of him and guide him and prepare him for college. I came into Ánimo and I just felt it, that this was going to be his house where they're going to take care of him, and cherish him and love him the way I wanted him to be loved and helped, and I haven't been disappointed. It's been the best. I couldn't have chosen a better place.

Our Community's High School

Any student can achieve and be successful in college, career, and life with a public education from Ánimo College Prep Academy. We believe that success isn't a destination, it's a journey that begins when students walk through our doors.

We know each student's story is different, and our academic approach accounts for that. Our rigorous college-prep curriculum measures not just how high a student scores on tests, but how far they’ve come to achieve those scores. We want our students to grow into well-rounded adults and citizens -- of Watts and the world -- whose skills and character make them leaders of our future. Enroll now!



Ánimo College Prep Academy prioritizes safety and strives to create a learning environment that allows students to focus on learning.



We view our parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. We encourage you to actively participate in your child's education by attending school programs, volunteering, and talking to your child about their day.


College-Prep Curriculum

We believe that every child must be prepared for college, leadership, and life - and that this begins as soon as our students walk in our doors as 9th graders.
