The Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the website that serves University Middle and High School Academies (UMHSA).  University Middle and High School is ranked #11 in the State of Michigan, US News, 2022 and we are extremely proud of this acknowledgement.  Our school serves as a catapult to true rigor for education in the fantastic district of Southfield Public Schools.  UMHSA is an AP Capstone school that celebrates with remarkable scores, graduation rates and an impressive history for our students and alumni.

As an AP Capstone school, we are designed to challenge our students with academic rigor and excellent preparation for college, while providing the necessities to become a productive citizen.  We service students from 6th -12th grade with a specific and strategic examination admission process.  Once accepted, students will have the opportunity to learn and engage in an array of advanced placement classes, while having the option of a variety of electives.

It is my hope that you will find this information about our educational institution intriguing and will consider admission.  If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me via email at  I would be happy to engage in a conversation about your student becoming an “Eagle” and joining the rest to see our “Eagles Soar”.
