Academics at UMS-Wright


UMS-Wright Preparatory School enjoys a 125 year tradition of academic excellence. In 1900, our secondary school was the first in Alabama to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Currently, the school holds duel accreditation through SACS and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). Additionally, UMS-Wright is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).

The UMS-Wright chapter of The Cum Laude Society is one of only three in the state of Alabama. Some 370 schools in the United States and abroad hold Cum Laude charters.  Membership in this prestigious society is afforded to only a small percentage of students.

UMS-Wright offers approximately 20 Advanced Placement® courses. In 2018, 62 UMS-Wright students were recognized as AP® Scholars for their outstanding achievement on the AP Exams. 

Students from the class of 2018 were accepted to 58 schools across the country, with 82% of the students receiving over $11 million in merit-based scholarships. Additionally, 42 out of 98 received ACT scores of 30 or higher. Six students in the Class of 2018 earned recognition as National AP Scholars.
