Welcome to UCAP!

UCAP is an independent, alternative middle school that is located in Providence, RI.  We  serve students in grades 7, 8, and 9 who live in the Providence, Cranston and Central Falls areas.  Our school is a second chance school for students who have been held back in grade and are behind in school.  At UCAP, our students can complete three grades in two years and catch up with their age group. More importantly, they gain the academic and social skills necessary to succeed in high school and in life.  Students learn how to take responsibility, set goals, work hard, take risks, and have fun.  Our model is proven ~ we flip the statistics from failure to success!

The opening of the Annex

On October 29, 2013, UCAP celebrated the Grand Opening of the new Annex!  The Annex has become the hub for our Beyond School Program after school activities and our students greatly enjoy the school's first-ever gymnasium, new science lab, and art studio.  Let the learning begin!  


Thank you to Mayor Angel Tavares, Dr. Susan Lusi, Superintendent of Providence Public Schools, Denise Jenkins of the Rhode Island Foundation, David Haffenreffer, Chair for the Fund for UCAP, UCAP School Secretary Muriel Marchand, UCAP Student Felix Cortez, and UCAP Parent Teresa Miller for cutting the ribbon.
