UHSA Students

Nurturing Tomorrow's Leaders, Today

Our Mission

University High School Academy (UHSA) and University Middle School Academy (UMSA) in partnership with students, family and staff capitalize on and nurture the potential of each student through a rigorous and differentiated college preparatory curriculum seeking to cultivate a diverse community of innovative and collaborative leaders.

Our Vision

Fostering a model community of life-long learners and leaders to transform the world.

Thank you for visiting the website of a model, high school preparation program, University Middle School Academy (UMSA) and our college preparatory high school, University High School Academy (UHSA). UMSA and UHSA are examination public magnet schools with a smaller, private school feel. I hope you find our website informative and user-friendly, as we want you to learn more about all that UMSA and UHSA have to offer your son/daughter.
