Preparatory School

About the Preparatory School

Upon arrival, the Preparatory School seems like a big place to students — but they learn to feel at home very quickly. With about 400 students in Senior Kindergarten through Year 7, we like to say that UCC delivers “big school opportunities with a small school feel.” Our educators are passionately committed to offering a warm, nurturing environment for boys to develop the emotional, social and intellectual skills they need to find their unique path and make a lasting and positive impact on their world. 

With unparalleled opportunities in every discipline, every student finds their footing and unlocks their potential, whatever their unique path.   

Academically, the Primary Years Programme (PYP) — Senior Kindergarten to Year 5 — is the first step in the IB journey. 

While graduation day may seem like a long way off to our Prep students, it’s worth noting that the effort of the IB Diploma Programme is well worth the enhanced recognition our graduates receive from universities.

Please explore the sections here, linking to information about our full academic, arts and athletics program, and top-tier facilities. Then come and see what makes UCC’s student experience so exceptional.
