Parent/Family Community

UPrep is a remarkable community to be a part of. Not only do the students build friendships that continue after graduation, parents do as well.“ Ann E., Parent of a senior and a graduate

University Prep partners with families to create lasting relationships that provide the foundation for our inclusive community. Parents are invited to participate in our co-curricular activities, support our arts and sports programs, serve as ambassadors for the school, bake for events, and volunteer in whatever way is possible for them.

The purpose of University Prep’s Parent Council is to support the mission, vision and values of the school while building community, promoting engagement and facilitating communication with and among families.

The UPrep Parent Council provides a vital communication link between families and school and acts as the steering committee for our students’ parents and guardians. It also plans and hosts many activities throughout the year that foster closer ties among all members of the community.
