University Academy Charter High School (UACHS) opened its doors in the 2002-2003 school year and is currently in its fourteenth year of operation. We currently serve 441 students with a maximum NJDOE approved enrollment of 460 students.
Because of its affiliation with New Jersey City University, UACHS is uniquely poised to offer students a high school experience with college in mind. Students who graduate with a GPA of 3.8 or greater and who are accepted to NJCU with regular full-time status are eligible to attend the university for free.
Administrators and teachers maintain high expectations of our students, and we encourage students to meet and exceed these standards through a small school setting where teachers and students grow close in classes with 20 students or less. Our school looks to foster a sense of community through our clubs, sports, and group-based discussion programs.
