Our Mission Statement

University Academy's mission is to prepare students to succeed in aninstitution of higher education and to participate as leaders in society. 


Parents and Students -

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at UAMS!  We look forward to helping your student be successful and ask that you partner with us to do that.  Please make sure you are signed up for Class Dojo, check PowerSchool weekly, and communicate frequently with your student about their continuous learning expectations!  We expect students to use their planners/agendas and work towards becoming independent learners.  We offer tutoring Monday through Thursday from 2:50-3:45 and encourage students to attend regularly.

Standards Based Grading helps our students and teachers focus on the skills within a standard and provides detailed feedback for what skill a student may still need to practice in order to attain mastery.  Please look through the SBG manual we have sent home that is also linked below.  An area of emphasis is our Promotion Standards.  Please look over them carefully as we only promote students who have shown they have mastered at least two of the four core subjects with a 3 or higher!  Continue to prompt your student to redo or retake assignments and assessments until they have shown mastery of the content!

The Middle School staff are committed to helping students succeed and become leaders in society. University Academy has a rigorous curriculum aligned with state and national standards that begins preparing students to succeed in an institution of higher education. The combination of our great students, supportive parents, and dedicated staff makes for an outstanding team at University Academy.
