University Prep (UP!) supports students to prepare for and complete a four-year college degree.
For students in grades 6 through 12, UP! offers an afterschool program that provides tutoring, homework help, academic workshops, and counseling to prepare students to graduate from high school ready for college. Students also receive support to apply to and enroll in college. Once in college, UP! provides scholarships and case management to support student success.
