UPrep has always been a place that recognizes each student’s potential and arms them with the resources, tools, and opportunities to succeed. Since 6th grade, this school has demonstrated its commitment to forming me into a person who is not only empowered by the opportunities offered here but will leave its doors as a citizen of the world. UPrep has shaped me into the person I am today and helped me discover the person I aspire to be after graduation.
Our students see UPrep adults who are constantly learning, and this influences our students to do the same. Students here are willing to step out of their comfort zones because they have a feeling that it’s safe to try new things here. They are taught by adults who really care and see them as people and the students bring a lot of themselves to what they do at UPrep. Both the adults and students in our community are multidimensional people and this is a place that nurtures a range of interests, strengths, and leadership opportunities.
We chose UPrep because it offers a full package of learning and student life opportunities. Of course, the academic excellence was a draw, but we were also thrilled with the language program, athletics, and music, theatre, and fine arts classes. We didn’t know exactly what would interest our two daughters, but we knew at UPrep our girls would learn to lead a life of learning.
UPrep values student curiosity and collaboration. The faculty here are thoughtful and caring about their craft. I think prospective families should know that their children will be encouraged to try new things and that they will be supported when they struggle with the things they have decided to take on.
In college, I was comfortable with the material in my computer science classes because of how well UPrep prepared me. A challenging part of my job is knowing how a program is going to be read by a computer. At UPrep, I learned how to dissect information and ask good questions.
