U Prep Schools Pathway Programs provide scholars an engaged and unique learning opportunity taking them outside of the classroom where they experience hands-on and project-based learning to prepare them for college and career.
Through our partnerships with some of Detroit’s top non-profits and for-profit company’s students are exposed to a variety of careers in high demand or lack diversity in race and/or gender. Upon the completion of the course requirements for each pathway, U Prep scholars will have developed employable skills and be on their way to achieving success in life.

“I like Robotics! The knowledge I have gained in my Robotics class and onsite work at LIFT will be valuable in my future aspirations to enter the medical field, specifically in my plans to help others by manufacturing robotic body parts.”

“My Zoology course has peaked my awareness to the similarities between animal and human anatomy. Our structures are similar; we both have a heart, brain and lungs. The concepts that I’m learning now will help me in my future field of study, physical therapy.”
