Student Academic Preparation and Educational Partnerships (SAPEP)
Raising achievement levels and closing achievement gaps for K–20 students
UC's Student Academic Preparation and Educational Partnerships (SAPEP) directly address the needs of California’s diverse students along the education continuum.
Comprising 14 programs, the work of the SAPEP programs benefits students of all ages, from pre-kindergarten through graduate and professional programs. Together, the programs raise academic achievement, college-readiness and college enrollment across the state.
K–20 education is a long-term process, demanding that educators have progressively more complex and interrelated skills. SAPEP works with schools, districts and colleges, the business sector, community organizations and those concerned with higher education to close achievement gaps at all educational levels.
In the 2015–16 academic year alone, more than 188,000 students, 52,000 parents and 13,000 teachers, counselors and administrators participated in SAPEP programs.
