At Halifax Prep, our goal is to turn the student athletes’ weaknesses into strengths, specifically with their studies, and give them the confidence they need to be successful in the classroom while excelling on the basketball court by obtaining an university scholarship. Our mission is for Halifax Prep to be one of the top basketball programs in the nation, while remaining affordable and not restricting recruited players from playing due to financial reasons.
