University Prep Art & Design

As an innovative leader in urban education, U Prep students in grades K-12 are prepared for a world full of possibilities. Since its inception, U Prep Schools has lived up to its promise of achieving a 90% high school graduation rate and a 90% college acceptance rate of all high school seniors. This promise, known as the Detroit 90/90 Promise, is one of U Prep’s oldest and most distinctive defining differences.

Another defining difference of U Prep Schools is our unique Expeditionary Learning model that requires a commitment from the entire U Prep community of school leaders, teachers, and staff who we call Crew. The Crew works together to ensure the success of each and every child. We do this by working with each child individually, meeting them where they are in their educational journey, and providing opportunities to engage in unique learning opportunities and experiences. Through our pathways and after school programs, students are inspired to seek, discover and pursue their passions.  Each child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met, in order to achieve success.  

U Prep Schools provides a safe and nurturing environment that is ripe for learning. When visiting our schools you will notice another distinguishing difference, our culture. The U Prep community lives, works and learns through a distinctive set of core values that creates this culture at all of our schools.
