Tuition-Free, Public Education, Open to All
University Heights Preparatory (UHP) is a tuition-free public charter school open to all students, grades 6-12. Within a city full of large, impersonal middle and high schools, UHP offers a unique, individualized environment in which all students are safe, challenged and focused on post-secondary success. UHP is located just off the campus of the University of Indianapolis, within a space uniquely designed for its educational program. The school offers a rich array of programs and partnerships that keep every learner engaged in long-term success.
College Starts Now!
UHP’s academic program is tightly focused on ensuring every student’s success long after his/her high school career. The vast majority of our students, prepared for our academic rigor, is able to take advantage of our partnerships with the University of Indianapolis and Ivy Tech Community College and earn college credits while at UHP. In fact, UHP students can earn as much as an Associate’s Degree, saving themselves and their families thousands and earning a head start on a college diploma.
Open to All
Any student in grades 6-12 may enroll and be part of the excitement at UHP. Our school is open to all. Still, we encourage students and their families to apply now. Last year, we received over 350 applications for just 250 seats. While we hardly wish to turn away any student, we believe deeply in our small-school model and our capacity to ensure every student in our school is safe, challenged and focused on academic success. Our students’ first day is August 11, 2014.
A Perfect Place to Excel
UHP operates in a newly renovated space, uniquely tailored to meet the needs of our students and ensure their success in our rigorous academic program. Even more, our proximity and close partnership with UIndy affords our school and its students a wide variety of special opportunities to be part of a college campus, while still in high school.
