About Us

Children aspire to reach their dreams.

Parents aspire to give their child every opportunity to succeed.

Communities aspire to develop new leaders for generations to come.

Grand Rapids University Prep Academy aspires to help children do more and be more, positively affecting themselves, their parents and their community.


University Prep Academy is a Grand Rapids Public School open to any GRPS student through an open lottery regardless of past academic performance. It is tuition-free and focused on academics first and foremost. It is a small school, currently offering 6th-8th grades, and will add one grade per year until it is a full middle/high school in the fall of 2013 with our first graduating class in the spring of 2014.

If you and your child aspire to the same, please consider joining our UPrep family where every child is on path to college or other post-secondary opportunities.
