University Yes Academy

New Urban Learning is proud to announce its partnership with University Yes Academy! Providing management services to University Yes as it works to bring the successful model of student achievement to Detroit.


We don’t just meet parents and families where they are. We go beyond their reach. We dream with them and as we do that, they go farther than even they thought possible.


YES Prep Public Schools President, Jason Bernal says...

New Urban Learning offers a high-quality educational choice for students and families in Detroit.   Through excellent teaching and a rigorous, college-preparatory environment, New Urban Learning will show that college graduation is attainable for all students.

Tonya Allen, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Program at The Skillman Foundation says...

New Urban Learning is committed to providing the highest quality education to urban children. Their efforts starting high-performing new schools and turning around existing poor-performing school prove their ability to effectively educate children and nimbly respond to opportunities. As a foundation executive, New Urban Learning is the type of entrepreneurial organization that one seeks to work with because of their coherent vision and ability to execute upon it.

Maia Heyck-Merlin, Founder and CEO, Brass Tacks | The Together Teacher says...

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the University YES staff for a full-day professional development session. The entire team was warm, welcoming, and eager to learn. I hope to return soon!

KIPP Senior Director of Leadership Pathways, Terence Johnson says...

I thoroughly enjoy working with the CEO as a thought partner in creating schools that will close the achievement gap in Detroit for underserved children. In addition, I have had the opportunity to work with New Urban League school leaders and  look forward to working with them in their continued development as they prepare children to get to and through college.
