University Preparatory High School (UPHS) is accepting applications for students entering grades 9-12. Parents of students who are interested in obtaining more information about UPHS, which is located on the College of the Sequoias campus in Visalia, should attend one of the upcoming informational meetings on March 12 or March 26 at 6pm in Room 14 of the Yokut Building on the COS Visalia campus.
A joint project of the Tulare County Office of Education and COS, UPHS is a free public high school in the early college model. UPHS students attend COS college classes and accumulate a significant number of college units while they are still in high school. They learn to navigate the complexities of higher education, develop college readiness and experience challenging high school and college curricula over the course of their high school experience.
UPHS has the highest accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, as well as approval from the University of California for A-G academic classes. A small and friendly school with an excellent learning environment, UPHS accepts students of all skill levels who are highly motivated, seeking college preparation and leadership opportunities, and who want to give back to the community. At UPHS, students can enjoy ASB student activities, college/university visits, theater arts, sports, music, fine arts, dance, journalism and service learning opportunities.
