University Prep Art & Design = Art & Design Pathway

U 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.

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.
