WHAT FUTURE DO WE WANT FOR OUR STUDENTS?
At Urban Promise Academy, we prepare our diverse student body to meet the challenging demands of 21st century college, career, and community readiness. We achieve these goals through an innovative, personalized approach that emphasizes student-driven acceleration, project-based learning, and social emotional learning.
UPA’s personalized model is key to addressing the challenges of supporting our diverse group of learners who represent a wide range of academic, emotional, language, and literacy skills. Student learning is accelerated through the strategic use of data to drive instruction, intentional integration of technology, and a focus on the Habits of Success.
Teachers develop engaging, project-based learning units that foster inquiry, mastery of cognitive skills, and real world application. Upon leaving UPA, students are critical thinkers who effectively drive their own learning through goal setting and reflection; lifelong learners who actively seek knowledge and possess technological competence and collaborative skills; and social justice-minded citizens who serve as advocates and leaders in their communities.
