ABOUT OUR SCHOOL


  • Located in Pittsburgh's historic Hill District, the Pittsburgh Milliones 6-12, University Preparatory School is a neighborhood school that offers an embedded academic Magnet program. Formed by a unique partnership between the University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Public Schools, Pittsburgh Milliones embraces a total college-going culture in and outside of the classroom. Our curriculum is driven by research but molded by each student's individual goals and abilities, providing each student with the opportunity to discover the value and attainability of post-secondary education. A small school environment provides support for students approaching or above grade level, and our support systems have been designed to help every student at Pittsburgh Milliones complete advanced coursework and succeed. All learners are expected to maintain high academic standards, believe in themselves, and graduate from high school to further their education. This belief, combined with our efforts to acclimate students to university life and introduce them to the possibilities that await them after high school graduation, will motivate students to pursue a college career. Our highly qualified faculty and diverse learning community together demonstrate that a public secondary school can connect all students to a relevant post-secondary opportunity, regardless of their previous academic record, serving as a model of innovation and excellence in urban education devoted to the distinct mission of Excellence for All.

    To complement its strong academic programs, University Prep offers a full range of sports reflecting the diversity of our students' interests, including football, baseball, wrestling, boys and girls cross country, soccer, tennis, volleyball and swimming. Students in grades 6-8 have their own sports teams in partnership with the Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy. Pittsburgh Milliones 6-12 encourages students to support college athletics by providing frequent class field trips to college sporting events. Extracurricular programs include the Student Leadership Team, Computer Science Prep, International Studies Club, History Club, Advanced English Mock Trial, Business Club, University Prep Wildcat Club, and Student Government. A formal scholars dinner and awards ceremony is held annually to honor student achievement in the service of scholarship, academics, athletics, and community service.
