Overview

Founded in 2000 University Prep Academy (UPA) opened its doors with only 112 sixth grade students. The school was initially housed in the basement of The Promise Land a small church on Detroit s east side. 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). UPA High School graduated its first senior class in 2007 with more than 93% of its graduates enrolling in post secondary educational programs.
