A Unique School

University Prep Academy is a school unlike any other in the greater West Michigan area. It is a college prep focused school, but one that is open to all students regardless of their past academic performance. We are looking for students who are ready to work hard to achieve their goals.

There are many unique aspects about University Prep Academy, but none more so than the students who attend here. At UPrep, our students and their parents/guardians play an integral role in mapping out their educational path. Interests, passions and each child's natural curiosity drive individual learning plans and projects.

Working together as a team -- as an extended family -- we believe that all students can succeed.
We can't promise that it will always be easy.
But we can promise that we will be with you every step of the way.

Unique elements that make us different:

  • Small classes - fewer than 23 kids who stay together with their teacher/advisor for multiple years
  • Small school - each grade is comprised of 72 students or less
  • Rigorous college-prep coursework for all
  • Project-driven, relevant learning
  • Real-world experiences
  • Personalized attention for the health of the whole child-- academic, social and physical
