From Our Community

With two completely different learners in our house, finding our family's best fit without having them in two different schools was a hurdle. 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. From becoming new members of the community and feeling right at home from the start, to now looking for colleges with a high schooler, 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
I believe we have the most amazing teachers in the world. We get to be surrounded and inspired by adults who are doing what they love and get to learn from people with unique experiences and viewpoints. I can safely say that UPrep has given me the tools and the confidence to go out into the world and make a change.” Current Upper School student
