University Prep

  • 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.
