Richard Allen Prepatory Charter School

The mission of RAPCS, which opened in 2001, is to create a safe and healthy learning environment for middle school youth. RAPCS CEO Lawrence Jones was formerly a teacher at Sulzberger Middle School, where he worked with WPLP on the Mill Creek Project. In 2015-2016, the school hosted discussions about community schools among teachers and MIT students. RAPCS’s location in Southwest Philadelphia is outside the Mill Creek watershed.
