Post Grad Program

Our post graduate program is for athletes that have completed their high school education but need more exposure in order to receive a scholarship or make a collegiate team. A player’s collegiate level is often determined by game performance, work ethic, athletic ability, size for position, and college position needs. This program allows athletes to take a year off before attending college (also known as a “gap year”) without losing any of their 4 year eligibility. Athletes in this program will compete against many of the top prep schools, independent high schools, and junior colleges in the country. After our competitive playing schedule, players will have the experience and confidence to play at the next level. If a player wants a scholarship, Southeast Missouri Preparatory School will assist them by pushing, supporting, and validating them along the way. We set the scene for our players, allowing them to take on the responsibility to perform at their best in competitive environments.

We add uniqueness to the Midwest athletic scene, being the first and only post graduate prep-school in the state of Southeast Missouri that will have both women’s and men’s basketball programs as well as a men’s soccer program. Our goal is to put players in positions to receive scholarships and college placements nationwide.



At Southeast Missouri Preparatory School we believe in equal opportunity. Every player will have equal opportunity to showcase their talent and earn a college scholarship.

We put a heavy emphasis on player development, targeting players weaknesses while also encouraging our them to sharpen and expand their strengths.


Below is the base price of all Southeast Missouri Preparatory programs. It is important that players understand that school, flights, and food are all additional costs, and will be included appropriately. In order to reserve a spot at Southeast Missouri Preparatory School, one must pay the deposit of the program of their choosing and tuition must be paid before the start date of the program according to the contract, unless agreed upon. Although the staff may recommend academic options, Southeast Missouri Preparatory School is an athletic program and not a school.  Southeast Missouri Preparatory School expenses are as follows: gym/facility cost, housing, tournament/game fees, transportation, marketing, web development, facility insurance, training, storage, furniture, jerseys, employees, and bad debt expense. Each expense is necessary to provide our athletes the best experience possible. Providing our athletes with facilities, training, and/or expertise that does not meet Southeast Missouri Preparatory School standards is detrimental to our mission of helping our basketball players play at the college level.
