Prospective Students

University Prep Charter High School will be conducting our public, 9th grade lottery for the 2019-2020 school year at our school at 11am, and then will announce the results of the lottery at our public event at 5:30pm, on Monday, April 8, 2019.  Light refreshments will be served at 5:30pm.  Please feel free to join us.  Applicants are not required to attend the lottery in order to receive results of the lottery, and attendance does not increase the likelihood of admission.    

UPCHS is still accepting student applications for the 2019-20 school year. We enroll students in the 9th and 10th grades. Our public high school provides a comprehensive college-preparatory education. There is no cost to submit an application or to attend UPCHS.

Incoming 9th grade students will be selected by random lottery. Students admitted to the 10th grade will be selected from a waitlist in 2019 as seats become available. Click the links on the left to learn more about the 9th and 10th grade admissions processes.
