Mission & Vision


Educating tomorrow's leaders today!


The mission of the University Academy Charter High School is based on the philosophy that everyone can make a contribution to the betterment of the world and individuals working together can truly help make a significant difference.  The school is dedicated to engaging young people in an academic experience designed to encourage a need to explore their world, a deep desire for knowledge and a passionate commitment to justice and service to others.  Central to the philosophy is the utilization of a historic approach to the education of the students as they interact with the city, New Jersey City University and the community through service projects.
