School Overview:

At UASCH, we prepare students for college and careers with a broad and deep focus on unique healthcare sectors. Coursework is as challenging as it is supportive with a strong emphasis on cross-curricular and project-based learning. As a member of the highly successful Urban Assembly network, UASCH has established partnerships with top-tier healthcare facilities that work in order to bring timely healthcare topics into the classroom and expose students to modern healthcare facilities. UASCH values parents as partners and cultivates a strong school-parent relationship. Our trimester system allows students to rapidly accumulate credits thereby making it possible for them to pursue off-site educational opportunities in the 11th and 12th grade.
