Sports & Before and After School Activities

University Prep Academy grows its sports and before and after-school activities each year based on student interest and through student-led initiatives. We want our students to advocate for themselves, as well as learn how to develop an idea and see it through to completion. Students can propose a before or after-school activity that interests them. Based on these proposals, we will explore with each student the opportunity to offer it.

University Prep Academy offers a variety of sports and after-school activities sometimes working in collaboration with other GRPS schools or organizations.

Our middle school athletic program is comprised of both UPrep and GR Montessori students forming one athletic team. This past school year, 45.7% of our 6th-8th grade UPrep students participated in at least one sport during the 2013-2014 school year.

All high school students, including UPrep, participate in one of two city high school athletic programs -- either through Ottawa High School or Union High School depending on the  home address.
