Upper School

University Prep’s Upper School curriculum includes a remarkable breadth and depth of subject matter and is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our students.

Our teachers design courses that foster intellectual curiosity, appropriately challenge every student, and build essential skills for academic success. They revise courses annually to reflect what students should learn in the current era. We have created new statistics, civics, and computer science courses in recent years so that students may gain new knowledge and skills essential for participation in a modern society.

English electives, world and U.S. history, and science courses are updated each year to reflect contemporary themes. The fine arts and physical education are constantly adapting to new trends in aesthetic expression and social values. All courses are five credits per semester unless otherwise specified.

Upper School students may take fully online courses for credit through Global Online Academy, a consortium of 60 leading independent schools in the U.S. and abroad.
