Mark Murray Elementary

University Prep Academy (UPA) Elementary – Mark Murray Campus offers students the promise of a rigorous academic experience through differentiated instruction and dedicated teachers who are committed to ensuring all students reach their full academic potential. Along with a strong academic core, every student who walks through our doors enters into a caring, nurturing and safe environment where they can be brave and have a voice. They can be who they are before they know who they will be, and they can go anywhere from UPA.
