For Episode 9, I interviewed David Porter, the Executive Director of University Preparatory Academy in the Silicon Valley in San Jose. This is a special edition Covid-19 episode and David speaks about their transition to virtual learning. 

University Preparatory Academy is a seat based charter school that has strong community support. The main mission of the school is to help prepare students to succeed in college. All students are required to take two AP classes before they graduate. 

Thank you to David Porter for taking the time to sit down with me tell us about their school and the wonderful programs they have available. David is also willing to share best practices with other schools to help out during the Covid-19 pandemic. You can find out more about University Preparatory Academy by visiting their website at
