A Message From Our CEO
Dear U Prep Community -
It is Open Enrollment season, the time of year when we invite you, your family and friends to become a part of our U Prep family. When a child enters the doors of a U Prep school they enter into a community; one that sets them on a path to become an independent learner. Through the lens of culturally responsive teaching and learning, the U Prep school community collaborates to create educational experiences that are unique to every child, even as early as their first year of school.
A child’s educational journey begins when they enter Kindergarten. Understanding the importance of providing a solid foundation for our Kinders, we engage our scholars through hands-on learning and offer them the freedom of self-expression and the necessary rigor to challenge them academically. Choosing the school that fits your child’s needs and uniqueness is paramount to their academic and life-long learning success. The benefit of families matriculating through our K-12 school community is the offer of a continuum of educational practices and structure. In elementary and middle school our scholars are introduced to areas of study that later prepare them for the career pathways offered once they enter a U Prep high school.
In this issue, you will hear from some of our Kindergarten teachers, who offer their perspectives on key elements for parents to consider when searching for a new school for their child. You will also learn about the career pathway work our UPSM high school scholars have been engaged in through a demonstration using a webinar platform. We will share our social-emotional approach to combating the stress that the pandemic has caused, on the heels of an NBC Special highlighting its effects nationwide. Finally, we are excited to announce the launch of a new pathway premiering at UPA High School in the Fall. Read below to learn more!
If you have not applied for your child to attend a U Prep school in the fall, I encourage you to do so today at UPrepSchools.com.
