UPrep's New Student Information and Communication Platform

UPrep is excited to launch a new student information and communication system in anticipation of the 2018-2019 school year.

UPrep is excited to launch a new student information and communication system in anticipation of the 2018-2019 school year. The new Veracross system, a leading service provider for independent schools, gives students, families, and UPrep faculty and staff easier access to information and communications that directly impact them.

The Veracross software replaces our previous Family Access software with a more modern, fully web-based system. Each member of the UPrep community has a unique login, and can access the system from any smartphone or web browser. Families and students each have a customized portal, or web page. Throughout the year, these portals will offer the links, documents, and information that are most relevant to you. You can also customize your notifications to control how you receive messages from the school.

On campus, Veracross offers UPrep faculty and staff a wide range of new information about our students. As we continually improve UPrep's teaching and operations, we analyze data from across the school. This system gives us new information about attendance, academics, and students' engagement in our community. That data, in turn, will help inform our decision making and give us new insights into our students' success and well-being.

We have already moved our communications emails into Veracross, and students and families can now access the fall schedules and school calendar. As we continue to roll out the new system, you'll see more features added throughout the year. We wish to acknowledge both the Parent Council and the Technology Advisory Board for their involvement in evaluating this new system and for their feedback on our early work.

As we prepare for the start of the new school year, we look forward to a new and streamlined way of communicating and sharing information within our community. We hope that families and students find this system to be another step forward in UPrep's commitment to work in partnership with families for our students' success.
