UPrep felt the most well-rounded and was the best fit for our child. It felt how a school should feel, and we are grateful for that. We got into all the schools we applied to but we felt the best about the way we felt with UPrep." –Current UPrep parent
UPrep has exceeded our expectations. The faculty and staff all know my children and family. The amount of teachers who care about our children's success has been overwhelming. Our family has utilized every aspect of the school's expertise, compassion, and experience to take our children to the next stage in their lives.” –Current UPrep parent
Of all the private school tours we attended, we appreciated that UPrep felt the least elitist, yet with rigorous academics. UPrep has the right size, a great location, a full athletics program, and a fantastic reputation for academics." –Current UPrep parent
