For over 32 years, we have served a 12-block target area in Northwest Pasadena. Our mission is developing
indigenous leaders for Pasadena and beyond. To realize our vision, we support our young people intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually from early childhood to young adulthood. We accept anyone regardless of their beliefs.
Harambee Preparatory School, began in 1995, offers an excellent private, Christian elementary education to approximately 45 children in grades K-6 regardless of ability to pay. Many of our students would be lost in the public school sector if it were not for HPS.
The Harambee Pre-school, was initiated in 2006. Our Pre-school Director and teachers have over 25 year of experience working with children. We provide academic readiness activities, playtime in a safe and nurturing, child-centered Christian environment. Our Pre-School curriculum prepares children for Kindergarten. We accept OPTIONS formerly known as CCIS. Enrollment is open to attend our Pre-School.
Former students are attending colleges across the nation, forming families, entering the workforce and accepting leadership roles in their communities.
