Mission, Vision, Values and Academic ExcellenceWhat Matters at University Prep
U Prep's Characteristics of Good Teaching
Teacher Professional Development Model
Voluntary giving to University Prep is an important element in sustaining our program's quality and success. You may support our teachers' work and the development of our students' abilities through a variety of opportunities.
The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the core component of our development program. With their generous support of this fund, parents, board members, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends provide the funds that enrich and enhance our program beyond what would be possible by tuition dollars alone. The Annual Fund provides a margin of excellence for the students in each classroom at U Prep. We invite and encourage each member of our community to generously support this annual campaign.
Alumni Scholarship Fund
Recently, the Alumni Association Board determined that the most valuable gift alumni could make would be to ensure that more students could experience the same, outstanding education they experienced. For this reason, they decided to create the Alumni Scholarship Fund. University Prep alums will now be able to support Middle and Upper School students who qualify for financial aid.
Parent Council fundraising activities, particularly the annual Auction, are a vital part of University Prep’s fundraising efforts. A successful Auction provides much needed funds for student programs, financial aid and co-curricular offerings, as well as giving the school's community an opportunity to publicly celebrate the school's mission and values.
