U Prep Schools opened in 2000 with a commitment to graduating at least 90% of our students and ensuring 90% enroll and attend their best-fit post-secondary option. Since our first graduating classes in 2007 (UPA) and 2014 (UPSM) we have achieved this mission. We examined our progress and, seeking ways to build on our success, we united our team toward the goal of college and career readiness for all students.
We have set the course for the next five years to give our students the courage to pursue a future full of possibilities. As the Chief Academic Officer, I am pleased to introduce to you the “Five Elements of the U”.
The Elements will assist families and staff in recognizing the structures that make our schools successful. They will be a blueprint for improving not only student achievement, but also college and career readiness. I strongly encourage you to review the following document, share it with your children, and engage with our schools to help prepare all of our students for success in life.
