Aquila is the student-produced, student-edited high school newsmagazine and news site of University Preparatory Academy in San Jose, California. It is currently overseen by Co-Editors-in-Chief Alexandra Rozmarin and Janessa Ulug, and the staff is composed of UPA’s high school students. Copies of the most recent issue will always be available at the front office. On the homepage, you will be able to access the online version of our newsmagazine as well as online exclusives pertaining to the magazine.

Aquila serves as a designated public forum for student expression. We aim to reflect the diversity of our community and build unity through true and accurate reporting in hopes that each of our readers will find a story they can connect with. As student journalists, we value the importance that our work serves in creating the first rough draft of our school’s history.
