Welcome to United Preparatory Academy – Main St.

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.
