During my four years in Yearbook, I've learned a lot more than just Photoshop and InDesign. I've learned to stand up for myself, to be an effective leader and to always say 'please' and 'thank you.' I truly mean it when I say I would not be the person I am today without this class." UPrep student
Students begin taking publications classes in seventh grade, starting in Middle School Journalism and Yearbook, with many moving up to leadership positions in Upper School Journalism and Yearbook.
Using state-of-the-art software and professional-grade camera equipment, they learn how to communicate through writing, photography, and graphic design. Beginning with understanding their audience, students learn the best ways to grab that audience’s attention, support their assertions with evidence, and tell compelling stories.
Student publications include two newspapers (Middle and Upper School) and the yearbook.
