For the fourth consecutive year, 100 percent of the Urban Prep Englewood campus’ senior class and the inaugural graduating class from Urban Prep's West campus has been accepted to four-year colleges and universities.
“I am impressed with these young men, their drive and commitment to scholarship,” Senator Hunter said. “I was proud to support and acknowledge the gentlemen of Urban Prep when they visited the General Assembly and wish them the best in their futures of continued dedication to academic excellence.”
