Welcome Message

Greetings from Downtown Los Angeles!


Since opening our doors in 2014, AUP has enrolled an incredibly diverse cohort of students that mirror the diversity of Los Angeles. As of Fall 2016, we have 50 students representing 17 countries and 9 states. We are excited to be matriculating our first graduating class in June 2017 and welcoming another exceptional cohort for the 2017-2018 academic year.

We invite you to dig a little deeper and learn how our students have engaged with experts since joining the AUP family. Just last year, our students explored Activision and the Museum of Tolerance, listened to Muhammad Yunus and Nicholas Kristof give speeches, and toured UCLA, USC, and Harvey Mudd in preparation for college applications. 

Details about the application process can be found here. We encourage you to take a tour of our facilities, meet the students, and meet the faculty. We humbly welcome you to American University Preparatory School, where the city of Los Angeles is our classroom.
