University Prep Value High School Home

Welcome to University Prep Value High School

Our mission is to establish and support free, high quality, values-based charter schools for students historically underserved by traditional public schools.
At University Prep Value High School, we believe students deserve every opportunity to make smart, well-informed choices that prepare them for college and beyond. The proven success of our “UP Process” provides students with opportunities to identify their strengths, weaknesses, and career interests. 

Where our students say...

  • I belong in this academic community;
  • My ability and competence grow with my effort;
  • I can succeed at this; and
  • This work has value for me.

At University Prep Value High School, every student commits to developing a plan for college and/or career. And, every student is encouraged to GIVE BACK. This graphic not only represents the significant amount of time dedicated by our students to community service but also quantifies the economic impact our collective efforts are having on our local community. It provides a clear visualization of the positive contributions we are making and highlights the meaningful difference we are capable of creating together.

Back East Scholars Trip – The Best of BEST!

The Back East Scholars Trip (BEST) was initiated in 2013 by Board Chair Grant Cambridge. He noticed many of our graduating seniors chose not to attend college. A small percentage enrolled in local state institutions. Students didn’t feel they had access to schools beyond Los Angeles, and certainly not schools on the other side of the country. Prestigious schools like Harvard, MIT, Brown, or Columbia weren't considered.
