The class of 2017 has set a new bar for academic success at the Academy. This year's class has 48 students who will be recognized as valedictorians and salutatorians. UCS has also recognized 78 seniors as UCS Academic Scholars for maintaining at least a 3.67 (A- average) cumulative GPA at the Monday, March 13th Board of Education Meeting.

From freshmen and sophomores registering for AP US History, AP Statistics and AP World History to juniors and seniors registering for exams in a variety of subjects, the UAIS continues to find new ways to challenge itself to do better!

In addition, UAIS students continue to be accepted to some of the finest colleges and universities in the world. The class of 2017 has acceptances to schools such The University of Michigan, University of Notre Dame, University of Maryland, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the University of Chicago, Purdue University, the American University of Paris, Carthage College, Wesleyan University, and Princeton University. Regionally, the UAIS continues to get acceptances hand over fist at universities and colleges like Bowling Green State, Kalamazoo College, Wayne State, U of D Mercy, Michigan State (as well as its prestigious residential colleges), Hope College, Michigan Technological University, and Oakland University to name just a few! And, there are still a few very big named universities on the east and west coasts that we are anxiously waiting on.

In short, we continue to be impressed and humbled by the work your students do. There is a science to results like this, and that credit belongs with our students, but also with our incredible staff who work harder than any other staff I am aware of to make sure students have the best opportunities possible.

The mission of UAIS is to engage our students and to cultivate their abilities through individualized attention and the support of our community of educators, learners, and parents.

This collaborative environment and the rigorous, comprehensive, and internationally-minded curriculum challenge the learner to grow personally and academically.

As our students develop into enlightened, globally-aware citizens, the skills and understanding that they acquire at UAIS will help them lead today and improve tomorrow.
