Dear Tri-Cities Prep Community, I am pleased to announce some changes that will hopefully bring excitement and anticipation to our Prep community. If you have not taken the time to visit our new website, tcprep.org, I invite you to take a look at what I hope will become a frequent website for you to visit. I would like to thank Ines Geist, Nick Cameron, Dr. Arcia, Melanie DeSmet and Kim Bowen for their help in making this goal a reality. Our new website is something we can truly be proud of. I am also pleased to announce that our former Manager of Institutional Advancement, Keri Escalera, is now the Director of Enrollment and Communications at Tri-Cities Prep. With renewed focus in enrollment, our hope is that we continue to see a growth in the number of students who attend Tri-Cities Prep. This year we welcome forty-five new freshmen students and […]

(The following was taken from a May 12, 2016 article in the Tri-City Herald. To see more media at the TCH website please visit: http://www.tri-cityherald.com/news/local/article77331312.html) BY SARA SCHILLING sschilling@tricityherald.com Hogan Jones and Gillian Gormley glided across the stage. Rehearsal was over for the day, but opening night wasn’t far off and the teens were taking every opportunity to work on, well, everything — including their waltz. They play Oberon and Titania in Tri-Cities Prep’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The show makes its debut May 13. It’s taken months of work to arrive at this moment, from auditions in January to tech rehearsals the last few days. And the stakes are high. Midsummer is a comedy, which means it’s lighter fare than, say, Othello. But, still, it’s Shakespeare. So when 7 p.m. hits, Hogan, Gillian and about two dozen of their friends will have to juggle mouthfuls of “thys and […]

Congratulations to Mrs. (Heather) Axel for her recent induction into the Pasco High School Hall of Fame. Tri-Cities Prep was blessed to welcome Mrs. Axel to our teaching staff in August of 2012 and we soon learned how deep her commitment to education is. While we have known how fortunate we are, she was recently inducted into the PHS Hall of Fame where she was recognized by the broader community for her dedication. Heather graduated from PHS in 1993 and went on to obtain her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Studies from Washington State University.  She returned to Pasco High to student teach and was then hired and taught for ten years at her alma mater.  She later received a grant from the Pasco School District to pursue a Master’s in Education Degree and graduated from WSU Tri-Cities in 2002. Heather worked for the Pasco School District for 14 years and […]

Friday, April 28th marks the opening night for Prep’s 10th Anniversary show of Shakespeare in the Spring.  This season brings an all new take on Twelfth Night. Our rendition opens on board a 1920’s Jazz Era cruise ship.  The Speakeasy Club is bouncing until it encounters a storm at sea.  People are lost, identities confused, and the bounds of polite society mightily tested.  As our heroin, Viola (Lily Mortensen) emerges dressed as a man in order to enter the Duke’s court, finds herself falling in love with the Duke himself, posing an awkward situation for all involved. The Duke (Michael Powers), however, is in love with the Lady Olivia (Sarah Zepeda) and sends his top servant, Viola (disguised as Cessario) on a mission to woo her.  Olivia, however, finds herself far more enamored by the handsome Cessario than the Duke.  Further awkward, Olivia is attended by Festi, a witty yet angsty […]

The Tri-Cities Prep Mock Trial team won 1st place at the YMCA Youth and Government Mock Trial District Competition in February.  Two teams from the district competition advanced to the state competition that was held this past weekend.  Of the two Tri-City high schools competing at state,  Tri-Cities Prep placed the highest! The YMCA Youth and Government Mock Trial program is a unique blend of law, debate, and drama in which students learn about topical issues and courtroom procedures while sharpening their critical thinking and public speaking skills.  The trials are not scripted and are held in real courtrooms with real judges. Tri-Cities Prep has taken part in the Mock Trial program since 1999, competing at the state-level for 14 out of 17 years.  Unlike sports leagues, the mock trial program does not divide similarily sized schools into competetive leagues.  This means that Prep often competes against schools with much larger student populations […]
