All students at Sugar Land Prep achieve above and beyond. Below are a few examples. Every course is complex and requires content mastery. There are no fill-in-the-blank, true/false, or multiple choice questions at our school. Our students are challenged and take on these challenges with successful results. Students are required to earn an “A” or they will not move forward in their courses. Along with our coursework, we push our students to the limit on ACT, SAT, PSAT, and Duke Tip Qualification.

CLASS OF 2016
Being a student at SLP has been amazing. My favorite moments from school include simply being around my friends. I have met some of the greatest people at SLP and I could not have made it through high school without them. In the fall, I will attend the University of Houston and major in Education. Although I was accepted to many other Texas area schools, I chose to attend UH because it best suited all of my needs. I received an Academic Excellence Scholarship, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.
While in high school, I participated in the Dual Credit program with HCC, and I completed 2 semesters of College English. I also completed the College Mathematics CLEP test. During my high school years, I have been actively involved in the Girl Scout SPURS program at Camp Misty Meadows in Conroe. Through this program, I have learned leadership and teaching skills, which led me to pursue a degree in Education. I have earned the highest leadership level in the program, as well as completed over 100 hours of service each year earning me the Presidential Service Award, annually. I was a member of the Girl Scouts Parade team, representing the program in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade. I also served as President, Historian, and Secretary with SPURS. I have also been a member of the Harris County 4H Gaited Drill Team. We perform and compete synchronized routines while on horseback, even performing at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. I have served as president of the local 4H chapter this past year.
I have enjoyed serving at Second Baptist Church and participating in Lambda Chapter National Homeschool Honor Society, FCHE choir, and volleyball during my high school years. I love horses and have had so much fun riding and competing. I have received a total of $315,000 from the 5 colleges I applied to. I will enter college with 18 hours of dual credit from taking classes at Lone Star College. Some of my SLP accomplishments include completing the Honors portion of chemistry and graduating with the distinguished diploma plan. All of the lock-ins, fieldtrips, and spirit weeks have created great memories for me. I will definitely miss SLP, but I’m excited to go to Houston Baptist University this fall! I plan to study chemistry so I can achieve my goal of becoming a physician. I decided to attend HBU because of its excellent pre-med program and its close proximity to my home. Go Huskies!
Over the past five years I have been attending TPA/SLP, I’ve enjoyed various field trips, group activities, and fellowshipping with this outstanding group of students. Perhaps one of my favorite memories from SLP was when I finished three years of math in one school year, therefore motivating the younger students to do likewise. I have also been involved in horseback riding, volleyball, track, National Homeschool Honor Society, choir, and serving at Second Baptist Church. I’m excited to announce that I have been offered a total of $98,000 from the two colleges I applied to, and I have earned 18 hours of dual credits. After high school, I will be studying Animal Science at West Texas A&M University in pursuit of my goal to become a veterinarian. I have chosen West Texas A&M because it has a distinguished pre-veterinary medicine program, and I will be trying out for their competitive equestrian team as well. Go Buffs!
Some of my SLP highlights are completing the distinguished diploma plan, getting 15 hours of dual credit, getting to work with the most amazing and helpful staff any school could offer, and adapting to its unique style of learning which pushed me ahead of my peers. I was able to accomplish all of my academic, athletic, and other goals here and I couldn’t have done it without the incredible motivation, encouragement, and advice from the staff. I enjoyed participating in many activities outside of SLP including Youth and Government, National Honor Society, Choir, C2 Bible Study, Track, Basketball, and playing football for the Fort Bend Chargers. I played in over 50 varsity level games, 3 state championships, was the team co-captain all four years I played, and was selected as First Team All-State in my position in the 2014 and 2015 Seasons. I earned $382,343 in academic scholarships from the 6 colleges I applied to, on top of interest from 15 other colleges to play college football. I will be attending the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor in the fall to study Pre-Physical therapy and pursue football. I chose Mary Hardin-Baylor because of their incredible PT program and the environment. I fell in love with it right when I stepped on campus for the first time! I plan on becoming a Physical Therapist and I’m really excited to see what God has planned for me over the next couple of years!
I came to SLP second semester of my junior year. I adapted quickly to the learning style and learned many techniques that have helped me prepare for college. When I came here, I had never taken an ACT, but I was able to score a 30 on the past December ACT because of the strategies SLP taught me. This year, I took a challenging Environmental Science course. This final exam was difficult and composed of 85 questions with each answer containing 5-7 sentences, but I was so relieved when I received a 96%. I also took AB Calculus and the AP exam, which was a major accomplishment for me. I applied to five colleges and received a total of $85,000 in scholarship money. I have decided to attend the University of Oklahoma that offered me a $28,000 scholarship. I have chosen this college because they have an astounding health and science program, which will help me pursue my future goal of becoming a DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine). I am excited to embark on this new journey and finally become an OU Sooner!
I would like to thank the SLP families for supporting the philanthropy projects that I really cared about. From the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, to the book drives and making crafts and blankets for Texas Children’s Hospital, it was all very rewarding. I was honored to twice receive the SLP Humanitarian Award. I plan to remain at home for my first year of college and take primarily online classes. Beginning my sophomore year, I’m interested in attending Baylor University, where I plan to major in Speech Pathology. Baylor has an outstanding program where I can receive both a BA and a MS degree. I am waiting until next year before applying for scholarships. Some of the honors and awards I’ve received include both Gold and Bronze Presidential Volunteer Service Awards. I’ve also received several National Charity League awards including the Mission Bell Award. I was honored that an article was written about me in the “Absolutely Memorial” magazine regarding the book drives I initiated and the philanthropy work I’ve done for Texas Children’s Hospital. I have taken both dual credit English and Government courses during my time as SLP. I am a member of the National Society of High School Scholars, which honors students based on grades, leadership, and service.
