Head of School

I love working with our students, who come to us from nearly 50 different elementary schools across the city. They are advocates for themselves and each other. I look forward to the world they will one day lead.” –Head of School Ronnie Codrington-Cazeau

A Message from the Head of School

UPrep Head of School Ronnie Codrington-Cazeau shakes hands with a graduate.

At UPrep, our students lead a life of learning. They are curious about everything and willing to try anything. Our students seek challenge through competition and collaboration. They are eager to connect and determined to contribute to their UPrep world and beyond. 

We engage our students with a challenging curriculum surrounded by an inclusive environment and mentored by caring and supportive adults. The young people in our community grow confident under the support and counsel of this extraordinary group of faculty and staff who are devoted to helping each student reach their potential. 

While exploring everything, promising students find their voice, their passions, and their purpose during a shared journey of joyful self-discovery. They leave us understanding that they can achieve anything they put their minds to. At UPrep, culture and community is all around us and our students enjoy taking advantage of all the school has to offer.

I joined UPrep because of the strength of its community and I encourage you to learn more about this amazing school by exploring our website, reading our blog and UPrep Magazine, and checking out our most recent videos and Instagram.

I look forward to meeting you and your family, and sharing more about how, at UPrep, we aspire to lead a life of learning.
