High Expectations Permeate Every Facet Of Our Work

We intentionally cultivate an environment that reflects our values. Our traditions, experiences and structures develop engaged, college-bound students.

College Bound

We ensure our students will be college ready through the development of strong work habits and a growth mindset. Our students understand the significance of a college degree and align their efforts in school with a college-bound trajectory.


U Prep’s core values are developed and harnessed as a means of contributing to the community. Our students take pride in their community and demonstrate their pride through their actions and words. Our visible environment is a reflection of our values.

Student Ownership

Students internalize and value the culture of high expectations within U Prep schools. They reflect on how this culture manifests itself through their academic and character development. Key moments- serve as capstone projects for students.
