Visit Our School

To get to know a school, you need to walk through the halls, meet the faculty, and get a feel for the community. At Urban Prairie, we warmly welcome you to do just that at one of our enrollment events.  

We encourage you to learn more by attending an enrollment webinar, come for a walking tour of our campus, or schedule a conversation with a teacher or parent. Find out why our graduates successfully get into the high schools of their choice with the confidence and strong academic foundation that they will need to be engaged, global citizens.
