History

In 1976, seven public school teachers followed their vision and founded a school designed to truly meet the needs of students and teachers. Growing slowly over the course of the next forty years, University Prep went from renting space in neighboring Temple Beth Am, to acquiring land and operating out of portables, to gradually building the beautiful campus it occupies today. Although the school has come a very Iong way from its origins, its core is very much the same: a school bound together by passionate educators, curious and eager young minds, and a community of families partnering with us to make this the very best school it can be.

Our goal is to provide excellent teaching in small classes to support students wanting to learn with the aim of becoming life-long learners and responsible citizens.” Jane Seymour, Founder
