The ULab


In early 2024 we opened the ULab, a 39,000-square-foot, three-story building across the street from our main campus. The ULab is a second academic hub dedicated to igniting our high school students’ passion for collaboration, creativity, and leadership through interdisciplinary and project-based learning.

At UPrep, exceptional faculty and staff inspire students to lead a life of learning. The ULab extends our footprint with learning spaces that match the quality of the outstanding teaching and learning that occur at our school every day.

With the ULab, our vision for the next 50 years becomes more of a reality. This is an exciting time for UPrep! Questions about the ULab? Contact Director of Development Liz Van Hoy.

The ULab is a once-in-a-generation investment in our children's future. We invite the entire UPrep community to come together to achieve our $25 million fundraising goal." Elise Hebb, Parent and Campaign Committee Member

The ULab: From the Ground Up

Building Highlights Include:

  • Ten modular classrooms with moveable walls that support interdisciplinary learning and seminar-style teaching
  • Wellness space for PE classes, athletic practices, and dance and yoga classes
  • A large gathering area and meeting spaces that support student collaboration and foster community building
  • A state-of-the-art 1,123 square-foot Makerspace where students make their ideas come to life
  • Expanded offices for College Counseling, Global and Outdoor Education, and Launchpad (UPrep's signature senior project)
  • A rooftop deck with seating for student and community programming

The ULab's universal design prioritizes accessibility for all. This includes counter, drinking fountain, and sink heights, and wayfinding signs with provisions for the visually impaired.
