The Arts Department at UPrep was the catalyst for some of my most profound personal growth. The teachers created a space that allowed me to step back, explore my options, and reflect on my experiences, and also inspired me to challenge the status quo.” –UPrep alumna
Every UPrep student receives a balanced and comprehensive program of instruction in the arts. Students learn the basic techniques, terminology, and vocabulary of the major media by participating in experiences that develop and exercise aesthetic functions. Techniques, processes, and experiences form a foundation for thinking about the uniqueness of the individual, as well as an awareness of the relationships among the arts, the individual, and society.
