2013-2014 Enrollment Application & Instructions
University Preparatory Academy actively recruits a diverse student population from the county and surrounding area. Admission is open to any resident of the state of California, with priority given to residents of Santa Clara County. Students are considered for admission without regard to race, ethnicity, national origin, gender or disability. The school strives through recruiting efforts to achieve a racial and ethnic balance of students that reflects the general population within the territorial jurisdiction of Santa Clara County .
UPA seeks to enroll students committed to a rigorous educational experience that includes longer hours and more school days than is expected of them at other neighborhood schools. Families who understand and value the school’s mission and will commit to the school’s instructional and operational philosophy are actively recruited. Prospective students and their parents or guardians are briefed regarding the school’s instructional and operational philosophy and are informed of the school’s student-related policies.
UPA has no requirement for admission and will admit any child that wishes to attend. We do, however, have parent and student commitment agreements which all parents and students will be asked to sign when a student is enrolled at UPA. In no instance will a student be refused admission nor subjected to any form of discipline because of their parents’ failure to sign or comply with the parent commitment agreement.
For all enrollment questions, please contact B. Rieken, Registrar at email@example.com or (408) 723-1839.
