At the heart of all GEMS Education schools is a dedication to inviting learners into an environment where cooperative inquiry, discovery and learning are supported, nurtured and celebrated.

Bradenton Preparatory Academy offers students from around the world an American-curriculum education with an international flavor, taught by a staff of primarily North American and western-trained teachers. The geographic, ethnic and cultural diversity of our student body provides the foundation for empowering leaders who embrace diversity, act ethically and lead responsibly in our rapidly changing world.

Building an inclusive, caring community grounded in a culture of kindness is integral to our work. As we develop each child's personal feelings of safety, competence and self-worth, we emphasize the development of caring and respectful attitudes towards others. The development of a child’s intellectual, physical, emotional and ethical characters prepares them for life beyond school.
