University Prep Academy (UPA) Middle School is a dynamic learning institution, named in 2012 as a “Beating the Odds” School by the Michigan Department of Education. UPA teachers and administrators are innovative, reliable, and extremely supportive of our students. We are committed to teaching the skills, behaviors, and knowledge necessary for success in college and life beyond the classroom. We incorporate students’ interests in learning activities and we foster opportunities for them to apply what they have learned at UPA to real-world situations. UPA Middle School is rooted in the notion of teaching the whole child – our educators are not only highly qualified, but invest in the idea of getting to know each student on a personal level.
All students at University Prep Middle School are placed in a “Crew”. These students and one highly qualified teacher (who we call a Crew Leader) remain together for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Learn More
