MISSION OF UNIVERSITY PREP
Building a foundation of skills, knowledge and character, University Prep educates every K – 5 student for college.
WHY JOIN THE UNIVERSITY PREP TEAM?
Be a GAME-CHANGER- We do not believe that race, zip code, or socioeconomic status determines the destiny of a five-year-old. Instead, we are unrelenting in our hard work and optimism for each and every child. Joining the University Prep team means entering the "change the world" business.
Be a PROFESSIONAL- Nothing matters more to us than the people we put in front of our scholars each and every day. Joining our team means developing your skills and abilities to the fullest while being treated with the highest regard. Four-week summer professional development, research trips to observe/analyze the highest performing urban schools in our nation, ongoing observation / feedback loops, and a laptop along with an abundance of resources and tools are all part of the professional "package" you receive as an educator within our results-driven organization.
Be on a TEAM- We believe team beats individual. We know that accomplishing our goal of eliminating the achievement gap cannot be done alone. Our staff is a cohesive team with everyone on the same page moving in the same direction. We all hold high expectations for our scholars, both academically and behaviorally, and all contribute to the achievement-oriented culture that infuses the perfect mix of joy and rigor.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
University Prep is undertaking a comprehensive, nation-wide search for committed, intelligent, hard-working leaders and educators with a track record of success working with urban student populations. Candidates must have an unwavering belief that college is in the future of every child.
