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. Within U Prep’s Career Pathways is an immersion of exploration in unique career fields that are either in high demand, or lack gender and race diversity. A selected number of students are chosen for our pathways, and an accompanying partner – either a learning institution or an industry partner supports the area of study. Upon completion of requirements students leave with employable skills to enter into the workforce. Even with the year we have experienced in the pandemic and the many unknowns that have surfaced, our schools have remained committed to providing hands-on experiential learning to our scholars through our career pathways.

“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.”
– Dorian 9th grade Robotics/Intro to Engineering (LIFT)
“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.”
-Tatyanna 11th Zoology (Detroit Zoological Society Partnership)
