Dr. Christopher Thurber
Dr. Szu-Hui Lee

Harvard graduates Dr. Christopher Thurber and Dr. Szu-Hui Lee created Prep4School after helping thousands of students at Phillips Exeter Academy, where they both serve as clinical psychologists. “We knew that students would do better if they had essential information before arriving on campus,” says Dr. Thurber. “Hard work got them into boarding school,” notes Dr. Lee. “Prep4School helps them thrive.”

The Association of Boarding Schools is a proud supporter of Prep4School.

International Inclusion is Our Philosophy

Prep4School is committed to worldwide student success, so our videos are available in an ever-expanding selection of languages. We are the only student resource available in a combination of English + Mandarin (subtitled in both languages), English-only (American accent), English-only (Australian accent), English with Russian subtitles, and English with Spanish subtitles.

Prep4School’s primary audience is students, of course. But we know that caregivers love to know what students are up to, so we did make one video primarily for parents. We hope you enjoy watching Caregiver Support for Students in the language and subtitle combination of your choice.
