Our Results


We have committed our hearts and minds to supporting our students' growth and achievement — and have been rewarded with extraordinary student performance and honors. More important are the stories of our students — showing the heights to which our scholars can soar with the right education, guidance and encouragement.


Consistently Outperforming Expectations


On Performance Index, a measure of how well students are reaching proficiency in tested grades and subjects, USN schools outperformed neighborhood schools and the district scores by wide margins. 




United Preparatory Academy


USN’s early readers are reaching reading proficiency and beyond by the end of third grade, a key academic milestone.


The Third Grade Reading Guarantee (TGRG) is a policy implemented to ensure children are reading proficiently by the end of third grade, and receiving early supports when they’re off track. This score places UPrep 11 percentage points above the district average, and mirrors the statewide average.  

United Preparatory Academy earned a B on K-3 literacy, a report card component that measures how successful a school is at getting struggling readers on track to reach third-grade proficiency. In contrast, no Columbus City School earned an A or B on K-3 literacy. UPrep’s score in this category places it eighth in Franklin County (urban and suburban schools), just behind a premier Upper Arlington elementary school.


Near East 6–8 & Franklinton 6–8

Columbus Collegiate Academy


USN eighth graders are equipped to go on to excellent high schools.


Both USN middle schools far outperform Columbus City in reading and math.

CCA-Main St. 8th graders reached proficiency in those subjects at nearly double the rate of their district counterparts. 


100% of CCA – Main St. students are economically disadvantaged. They outperform the local district and even the statewide average.
