CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2014
For the fifith consecutive year, 100% of the seniors from Urban Prep’s Englewood and West campuses and the inaugural graduating class from its Bronzeville Campus have been accepted to four-year colleges and universities.
Urban Prep Academies is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by education entrepreneur Tim King and a group of African-American education, business and civic leaders. Urban Prep’s mission is to provide a comprehensive, high-quality college preparatory education to young men that results in graduates succeeding in college.
The Urban Prep motto is We Believe. Our motto is a constant reminder that Urban Prep students will not fall into the trap of negative stereotypes and low expectations. Instead, Urban Prep students believe in their potential and believe in their ability to exceed that potential.
THE URBAN PREP CREED
The Urban Prep Fellows Program brings in exceptional recent college graduates to serve in a unique role as mentors, tutors, and advocates for the freshman students of Urban Prep Academies.
Teachers and staff report that one of the most difficult aspects of their jobs is to understand the issues and challenges that face each of their students. UP Fellows close this crucial gap by taking a 360° view of each student’s life, circumstances, and interests. Fellows then share this knowledge to coordinate opportunities, programs and enrichment activities between the student, his teachers, the school community, and outside resources.
This unique approach helps to radically improve the amount of personal attention that students receive, which in turn rapidly increases student engagement and success in school.
