Research shows that students perform better academically, socially, and emotionally when they are meaningfully engaged, contributing members of a school with a positive, caring, equitable school climate. University Prep Value knows the influence and impact students can have on their own school community, particularly when they are trusted and involved in creative decisions from the start.
We believe our students must work to make the world in which they want be, and to create a school they want to experience every day. Creating a positive school culture for students, teachers and families alike begins by encouraging students to take on leadership roles.
Developing self-leadership and integrity helps students understand they can have a positive influence on their peers and on their world. The student leadership program at University Prep Value helps young adults foster a deep understanding of their impact now and into the future.
