Welcome to United Preparatory Academy – East.

We believe that a child's path to college starts with kindergarten. Our school is a safe, close-knit community on the near-east side of Columbus. Our dedicated teachers work hard to provide rigorous, joyful, and academically-rich instruction. It is an honor to serve our families, and we are passionate about doing whatever it takes to see our scholars succeed. 

–Valerie Kunze, School Director
