Why you’ll love

Teaching with Us

We approach teaching differently. We believe it is a craft that is mastered over time through deep ownership of your growth and a constant pursuit of excellence.

At U Prep every ounce of educator energy and effort comes from a place of love and commitment to our children and our mission. Being surrounded by excellent educators who are obsessed with our scholars winning makes all of us better. There may be nothing more energizing than being part of a like-minded, mission-driven team that is unwavering about doing right by kids.

As passionate as we are about our scholars succeeding we are equally dedicated and committed to our adults. Our teachers are loved and deeply supported in their professional and personal development because we know that’s what it takes to achieve excellence and we’re serious about our people becoming exceptional.
