History

University Prep is an independent, coeducational, nonsectarian day school for grades six through twelve. We offer an outstanding college preparatory education to a diverse group of students. Our program features top-notch academics, arts, athletics, and cocurricular activities, and allows each student to chart a distinctive path in pursuit of an abiding interest or an adventure into the unknown. Beyond academics, we believe in preparing students for adult life, focusing on respect for self and others, effective problem solving, and mature decision making. We are committed to imparting the value of diversity and the importance of giving back to the community.
