    It is the mission of Prescott College to educate students of diverse ages and backgrounds to understand, thrive in, and enhance our world community. We strive to provide an educationthat will enable students to live productive lives while achieving a balance between self-fulfillment and service.

    Prescott College, tucked into a corner of the central Arizona town whose name it bears, is an evolving experiment in rejecting hierarchical thinking for collaboration and teamwork as the cornerstone of learning. The College puts students at the center in everything it does and is. Optional grades. Narrative Evaluations. No barriers. Limited bureaucracy. No summa or magna or best in show ribbons. Just a peripatetic community of lively intellects and fearless explorers whose connecting threads are a passion for social justice and the environment and a keen sense of adventure.
