PUC schools are high achievement/high support schools that demonstrate high levels of success. All PUC schools are committed to graduating all students, including those who are academically struggling, while simultaneously preparing all students for college-ready standards and success. Our schools feature a rigorous college-preparatory program of study beginning in sixth grade that includes enrollment in college classes by the senior year in high school. Each school is characterized by a strong college-going culture.
The following design principles were honored and put into practice at the University Park Campus School, a school that has consistently demonstrated holding power for students who enter academically behind while achieving college-readiness for all. UPCS is one school that exemplifies these design principles which capture the critical elements of a board range of high achievement/ high support school designs. At PUC Schools we seek to achieve the same level of success as University Park Campus School through alignment to the same core design principles.
