Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is to provide a curriculum and learning environment so that students will maximize their potential for ascertaining their goals with intrinsic motivation and confidence and so that students will be empowered to become lifelong learners and strong, functional contributors to their local and global community.

We live our philosophy by providing the professional staff with training in curriculum development using gifted and talented strategies. We provide on-going teacher training in current research-based strategies and we provide programs designed to develop leadership skills in students teachers, community representatives, parents and administrators oprovides a safe, secure, respectful and caring learning environment for all involved with or working in the Universal Academy facility oprovides lifetime skills (i.e., social skills acquisition, peer mediation tools, healthy lifestyle skills, etc.) that will enhance the learning process and school environment while enriching the lives of students well beyond their graduation.

All students attending Universal Academy will be treated as gifted/talented learners, regardless of current test information. By focusing on the mind, body and self-esteem of each student, we will create a holistic educational environment. The goals/expectations for and belief in our students will help them to accomplish their individual goals and lead each of them to life-long success.
