University Preparatory High School (UPHS) is accepting applications for students in grades 9-12. Parents of students who are interested in obtaining more information about UPHS (located on the College of the Sequoias (COS) campus) should attend one of the upcoming informational meetings to be held Thursdays, March 19, April 9 and 23, and May 7 at 6pm in Yokut Building, Room 9 on the COS Visalia Campus.
A joint project of the Tulare County Office of Education and the College of the Sequoias (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 curriculum 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.
