Nurturing Tomorrow's Leaders, Today
Our Mission: UHSA and UPrep in partnership with students, family and staff capitalize on and nurture the potential of each student through a rigorous and differentiated college preparatory curriculum seeking to cultivate a diverse community of innovative and collaborative leaders.
Our Vision: Fostering a model community of life-long learners and leaders to transform the world.
Thank you for visiting the website of a model high school, University High School Academy (UHSA), and our educational program for eighth grade students, University High School Preparatory Academy (UPREP). I hope you find our website informative and user-friendly, as we want you to learn more about all that UHSA (grades 9-12) and UPREP (grade 8) have to offer your son/daughter. From an exemplary and innovative STEAM2 (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) curriculum to a plethora of school sponsored clubs and organizations, UHSA and UPREP have a means of engaging our students as active members of the learning community.
