Coast to Mountains Preparatory Academy (CM Prep) is a private, online school providing students grades K-11 (expanding to K-12 for the 2024-2025 school year) with tailored, high-quality academics based on their individual needs, interests and learning styles. CM Prep serves students across North Carolina to meet them where they are – at home, on the road, or wherever there’s an internet connection.


CM Prep uses an award-winning curriculum that blends learning elements to accommodate multiple learning styles and maximize both the quality of lessons and the way they’re delivered. This personalized curriculum from K12 allows students to explore and find their own path to success – even providing career prep and college prep options to ensure that students are set up for their future.


Financial aid and scholarships are available through ESA+ and Opportunity Scholarship. In many cases, these programs fully cover the cost of tuition for eligible families. To qualify for the scholarship, families must meet certain requirements, including income eligibility, students must live in North Carolina, etc. CM Prep has enrollment consultants available to walk families through both scholarship application processes. 


Our licensed teachers are specifically trained in online education to create a highly interactive curriculum in a small group and 1:1 learning environment that allows for personalized instruction. We also offer career and college prep options for middle and high school students to ensure North Carolina students are set up for success no matter their journey. No matter their passion, CM Prep provides an outlet for every student to thrive.



“Our goal is to create a community of passionate students and emerging leaders through programs focused on individualized student needs, empowering students and families to have control over their education as they pursue their interests” –  Dr. Daniel Perry, vice president of private school management at Stride, Inc.


“My son Phoenix made the transition to online learning after facing bullying issues at school. Since we made the move, I’ve seen him flourish – his grades have improved and he’s getting hands-on learning experiences that he can do at his own pace. His teachers have been attentive, communicative and supportive – we’re looking forward to starting 6th grade with CM Prep!” – Jennifer H., parent of a CM Prep student
