University Prep is an independent, co-educational, non-sectarian day school for grades six through twelve.
We offer a quality college preparation education to a diverse group of students.
That education includes uniformly excellent academics, arts, athletics, and co-curricular activities, allowing each person to chart a distinctive path in pursuit of an abiding interest or an adventure into the unknown.
Beyond academics, we believe in the broader concerns of life preparation, focusing on respect for self and others, effective problem-solving, and mature decision-making.
Students discover the value of diversity and the importance of giving back to their community.
University Prep is committed to developing each student's potential to become an intellectually courageous, socially responsible citizen of the world.
