UNIVERSITY PREPARATORY ACADEMY
University Preparatory Academy (UPA) is a charter school with a current enrollment of 560 students from grades 7 through 12. Leaders of the church noticed a need in the community to provide a better education for our students so a plan was created in coordination with the county and University Preparatory Academy was born.
UPA offers a very rigorous curriculum including UC-a-g courses and advanced placement courses. Students graduating from UPA are qualified to enroll and succeed in the finest colleges and universities in our country. This is the mission that governs all our activities and decisions at UPA. UPA feature a Math, Engineering, Bio-Med, and Science program, titled “Project Lead the Way” yet all students are required to take and pass courses in the arts.
UPA is located in San Jose and is housed in an excellent state-of-the-art facility with well-equipped classrooms, science labs, and facilities for the arts, such as a dance studio and performing arts center.
Students, parents and staff work as a team to ensure the academic achievement of our students. UPA has achieved one of the highest API scores and rankings in the state. In addition, the staff and student work together to ensure a very safe environment for students to learn.
