Dr. Steve Perry

Founder and Principal at Capital Preparatory Magnet School



Dr. Steve Perry, nationally recognized as one of the most innovative educators on the scene, believes in universal educational choice. Empowering only low-income students with educational choice simply isn’t enough. If we want our education system to undergo the big, bold change we all want and talk about, the time has come to make sure all families are able to choose the school that’s the best fit for their kids.

Dr. Perry is founder and principal of what U.S. News and World Report has cited as one of the top schools in the country, Capital Preparatory Magnet School in Hartford, Conn. Capital Prep has sent 100 percent of its predominantly low-income, minority, first generation high school graduates to four-year colleges every year since its first class graduated in 2006.
