University Charter High School



Introduction from the Principal

Dear Parents, Prospective Students and Community Members:

Thank you for your interest in University Academy Charter High School - we are honored that you are interested in our school! Our approach to education is to form partnerships between parents, students, faculty and the community-at-large. As partners, we work together to assure that students experience academic, social, and emotional growth.

Students' growth is achieved by developing academic comprehension, confidence, moral character, environment awareness and leadership abilities. All of our curriculums are fully integrated across subjects. Students are challenged to implement their studies across all disciplines. We do not believe that learning is bound solely to classrooms.

The mission of UACHS is based on the philosophy that everyone can make a contribution and that individuals working together can make an impacting difference. It is also part of our mission to educate every student to become a lifelong learner. This is accomplished by instructing students that education is never complete and that to be considered learned, they must consider and act upon their knowledge and awareness of cultural diversity.

Our goals are to provide:

  • A challenging learning environment where students can achieve academic excellence;
  • A safe, nurturing environment that encourages students to develop and interact;
  • An environment where students develop confidence to take risks and set goals;
  • A commitment to the professional development of teachers, staff, faculty and administrators;
  • A standard where students act responsibly and have respect for themselves, their school, and their community.

Presented on this web site is an overview of University Academy Charter High School. After review, if you have any questions or would like to schedule a meeting or tour, please call us at (201)-200-3200. We are proud of our school's accomplishments yet we constantly strive to make improvements. UACHS seeks involved parents and motivated students committed to education, self-development and community participation. If you, as parents or prospective students, are looking for a school to apply your talents while being challenged, then I respectfully suggest that you consider applying for enrollment at University Academy Charter High School.

Thank you for your consideration,

Erie Lugo, Jr.
