Founded in 2000, University Prep Academy (UPA) opened its doors with only 112 sixth grade students. With the promise of a 90% graduation rate and a guarantee that 90% of students would go on to post-secondary education, UPA became the first “90/90 school” in Detroit. Since its inception, the UPA district has grown to include a high school (2003) and two elementary schools, Ellen Thompson Elementary (2005) and Mark Murray Elementary (2008).
