International Travel – “I had the opportunity to travel to Spain, South Africa and Costa Rica through U Prep Schools’ International Travel Program. The experience made me feel extremely grateful for what I have at home. I gained a sense of independence and responsibility while being away from home, which will help me as I look ahead to the future.”
– Grant, 8th grade student
Debate Team – “Overall, debate is a beneficial activity that gives black and brown kids access to higher level education and skills that not only pertain to them, but can also give them an academic boost in core skills that they use every day.”
– Jabari, Varsity Debate Team
Detroit Food Academy – I joined the program last year in my 10th grade year, and it started off as just an opportunity to build relationships with other peers in my school community. What I gained was summer employment, part-time employment during the school year, exploration of Detroit restaurants and mentorship.

Chess Club – “Chess has allowed Jacob to soar in Math & ELA by enhancing his analytical, comprehensive, & negotiating skills. Jacob continues to enjoy chess as he consistently improves his ability in the game by competing & winning at the local, regional, & national level. I highly recommend this chess program to all.”
