Founded in 2007, The Urban Assembly School for Criminal Justice seeks to prepare young women for college success. We provide an academically rigorous curriculum that reflects the core set of knowledge and skills necessary for admissions to and graduation from the nation's top universities. Embracing the theme of criminal justice, we develop our students into critical thinkers who rely on evidence, logic and sound reasoning to formulate ideas and to support them. These critical thinking skills will serve them well in any field they eventually choose to pursue. Our school community allows adolescents to transition into adulthood in an environment which supports emotional, physical and intellectual growth.
