Innovative Urban Education in Downtown Los Angeles

College Counseling

AUP expands on the traditional and private boarding school model and offers students many opportunities to be noticed. Here are just a few:

  • Given our location, students with an urban education in an international community stand out in the college application process.
  • Our Downtown Los Angeles location and programs provide curricular opportunities to engage many unique urban (e.g. financial, cultural academic, and governmental) resources.
  • Our students gain a unique perspective on social responsibility and citizenship.
  • Our program offers social and community opportunities few schools can offer, and our students speak to their personal development as citizens.
  • We attract strong students who excel and challenge each other to become stronger academically.
  • Our diverse faculty write strong recommendations given their educational background.
