Dare To Dream

Every family has a dream.

At University Prep we work hand in hand with families to ensure those dreams come true.

Our two Denver elementary schools serving Kindergarten – 5th grade are tuition free public charter schools with a simple and clear mission – prepare every child for a four-year college degree and a life of opportunity.

Our Teachers are the

Game Changers

Teacher helps young student with work

U Prep teachers believe every child can. They develop meaningful connections with each student while building a safe, focused, and joyful environment where everyone is a learner.

Through hard work and dedication U Prep educators teach children how to develop their own ideas and confidently share their thinking. They help students persevere as they tackle challenging tasks, increasing their academic skills and knowledge.

U Prep educators help children realize they are part of something bigger as they build their foundation to pursue their dreams.

  • My child’s school is a safe place to learn.

At U Prep we love our families and our families love us because we are working together to keep a promise. The promise of an excellent education for each child.

“I wouldn’t take my girls anywhere else in the city. The teachers are caring and the main focus is preparing children for college. I feel like all schools should be like University Prep.” – Danitra Johnson (U Prep Parent)

We have been a part of the University Prep family from the beginning. Over the past school years, I’ve been so proud to see my child grow, learn, and get the support that I feel EVERY child should receive.
