University Prep Art & Design = Art & Design Pathway

University Prep Art & Design Elementary 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, and an art & design focus. At U Prep Schools, the needs of our scholars come first, and each is seen and heard. Our innovative approach to teaching and learning is grounded in our commitment to offer a hands-on Culturally Responsive Education to every scholar, rooted in Expeditionary and Project Based Learning, and a primary focus on every scholar’s social-emotional well being.

With a collective mindset, we lead Restoratively, which results in the development of a community, and a high level of school pride throughout our network (link to the core values page). What sets us apart are our unique Career Pathways that serve as an introduction and preparation for scholars’ post-secondary plans. Year after year, we successfully fulfill the mission of the Detroit 90/90 Promise.

As an added bonus all campuses offer competitive sports and free after school programming to enhance the 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. At University Prep Art & Design Elementary School we believe we are a family of continual learners; a community where everyone knows they belong and takes ownership over our school and our achievement.  We believe that all scholars are capable of learning at or above grade level in an environment that encourages love, risk taking, and a joy of learning.  We are advocates for ourselves, each other, and our community.  We are a team and family.

U Prep Schools values parent and family partnership. Engaging with our parent community has proven to enhance student experiences and academic excellence. Each of our school campuses shares relevant topics and current practices to align families with the day-to-day culture and academic structure of their scholar’s school day.

We encourage our parents to stay connected to your scholar’s teacher, school leadership, and the overall school community during monthly parent meetings and other family engagement events and opportunities.

To obtain information about upcoming parent meetings, events, and other ways to get involved please reach out to your School Operations Manager.

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.
