About the School

AUPE’s mission is to empower a community of diverse advocates. Our students will have the skills and support necessary not only to understand the world as it is, but to advocate for the world as it can be. At AUPE, educators collaborate to center academic and socio-emotional instruction directly around students. Our faculty is committed to rigorous and relevant curriculum and pedagogy that orients critical conversations towards building inquisitive and responsive learners. We are part of the Career Readiness and Modern Youth Apprenticeship (CRMYA) pilot, which helps us support career readiness for all our students. We have courses that help our ninth and tenth graders explore their career interests and develop readiness skills. Our students can apply for apprenticeships in tech, finance, and business, which allows them to earn and learn while in high school.
