Why do we do what we do?

You deserve access to reliable and informative sexual education. PREP classes are a judgement-free zone. No question will go unanswered and no question is “stupid.” We are here for you!

We value, support, and respect your rights and abilities to make informed choices about your health and safety. PREP provides an inclusive, learner-focused environment for all students. 

What is Comprehensive Sex Education?

Comprehensive Sex Education teaches about abstinence as the best method for avoiding STDs and unintended pregnancy, but also teaches about condoms and contraception to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and of infection with STDs, including HIV. It also teaches interpersonal and communication skills and helps young people explore their own values, goals, and options.

Get RealTM 

Our evidence-informed curriculum is called Get RealTM. Get Real provides medically accurate, age-appropriate information designed for teenagers ages 14 to 19 years old. Get Real emphasizes social and emotional skills as key components of healthy relationships and responsible decision making.
