Thank you for your interest in admission to University Prep!  Applications for the 2022-2023 school year are now closed. If you have any questions please contact us at

The first step to beginning your application is creating an account in Ravenna, our online application portal. Through Ravenna, you can manage your application online from start to finish, including completing the Intent to Apply form, submitting the $60 application fee or fee waiver, submitting supplemental forms (such as admission testing, teacher evaluations, request for records, student essays, and parent/guardian statements), and receiving the final admission decision. Please click on the buttons to the right to create your account.

Returning Ravenna users can log in using their existing email and password. If you have trouble creating a new account or logging in, please contact

The Application Process:

  1. Complete the Intent to Apply form and submit the nonrefundable $60 application fee through Ravenna. You must complete these two steps before you will be able to schedule a visit or proceed with the rest of the application. Please contact to request a fee waiver if the application fee presents a hardship for your family.
  2. Schedule your visits through Ravenna.
  3. Complete the Parent/Guardian and Student Essays in Ravenna.
  4. Print and sign the Request for Records form and submit it to your student's current school. Schools will send transcripts/report cards directly to University Prep.

  6. Delegate the Teacher Evaluation forms in Ravenna to two of your student’s current or recent teachers.
