Welcome to UCAP!

UCAP is a second chance school for students who are at serious risk of dropping out.  All of our students have been held back at least one grade before enrolling.  At UCAP, they 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!
