(Editor's Note: the following information was provided by Austin Preparatory School.)

The Middle School at Austin Preparatory School is hosting an Open House for families of boys and girls interested in grades six through eight. 

The Middle School at Austin Prep offers a unique journey for students in grades 6-8. Its small class sizes (average is 15 students per class) and interdisciplinary teaching encourage creativity and independent thinking. The primary purpose of the middle school experience is to discover and enliven the special talents within each student. 

Austin Prep’s program develops study and thinking skills appropriate to diverse intellectual disciplines and to students’ developmental abilities. Classes stimulate curiosity, encourage innovation, and sustain a passion for learning. Over time, students develop greater independence by becoming self-directed and responsible, having a choice and a voice in their program of study.

The Middle School Open House is Wed., April 5 at 9 a.m., at 101 Willow St., Reading.  All families are asked to register so the school is fully prepared for your visit – register at

Families will have the opportunity to meet Headmaster James Hickey, Ph.D., Head of Middle School Michael McLaughlin, speak with middle school faculty members and take tours of the campus with current students. Tours will include visits to the new Stadium Athletic Complex, arts and music wings, classrooms and Meelia Hall (gymnasium).
