University Prep Art & Design = Art & Design Pathway

U Prep Art & DesignElementary is located in the Boston-Edison area, in the heart of the City of Detroit! Our scholars are educated in a safe, state of the art facility with small class sizes, an art & design focus, and free after school programming to enhance their overall educational experience. The work we do is driven by our vision, and it is through that lens that we educate, mold, and nurture every scholar.

The U Prep Vision: University Prep Schools provides a culturally responsive educational experience for scholars, that builds academic competence, habits of work and scholarship, and self-actualization; empowering them to successfully accomplish their post-secondary plans, as well as socially and civically engaged as change agents for themselves and their community.

In a city with a history of having low high school graduation rates, the founders of U Prep Schools wanted to make a difference in the lives of children and in the delivery of education in Detroit. 

As one of the oldest and largest charter schools in the city, U Prep Schools was founded based on the belief that measurable outcomes will guide us in the work that we do.

Aligning with the schools’ mission of ensuring that students are prepared for college and to achieve success in life, the founders, board, school leaders, and faculty made a promise that 90% of the students served will graduate and be accepted to a college of their choice. This promise, known as the Detroit 90/90 Promise has been consistently measured and achieved for the past 20 years.

Known as innovators in urban education, the Detroit 90/90 Promise is U Prep’s oldest and most distinctive defining difference.
