Welcome to the University Prep website!

UPrep is a school with a remarkable history and story. Founded by seven Seattle public school teachers, our 40-year history celebrates a commitment to inclusion, a legacy of innovation, and a culture of inspiration.

At UPrep, we help each student reach their potential to become intellectually courageous, socially responsible citizens of the world. Our students graduate UPrep prepared for college and life.

During the 2019-20 school year, we will complete the fifth and final year of our Strategic Plan 2020. This plan identified three priorities, where our talented faculty and staff have made great strides:

  • Promoting Teacher Excellence in Support of Students,
  • Optimizing Place and Space to Enhance Learning and Our Community,
  • Evolving Next Generation Learning to Prepare Students for a Changing World

I invite you to learn more about UPrep by exploring our website, reading our blog, or joining us at an open house.

I look forward to seeing you on campus, where you can get a real sense of the energy and purpose of this terrific community.

Interim Head of School
