Great things are happening!

Applying to The UCAP School

At The UCAP School, we pride ourselves on our ability to form strong relationships with students and families. As a small school – only 140 students – we offer students a close community that supports each individual’s success. UCAP accepts students from Providence, Cranston and Central Falls school districts.

Students applying to The UCAP School generally fit into one of the categories below.


Students currently in 6th or 7th grade who are at least a year older than their age appropriate grade. The majority of these applications come from current 6th graders entering 7th grade next year; these students will be given first preference.


Students who will be entering 7th or 8th grade next year who are in age appropriate grade (have not repeated) but who have failing grades in math or English, low overall grades, or are struggling in a large school environment.


We are always ready to work with counselors and families to determine if The UCAP School can benefit your student. Please contact us if you have someone in mind!

Special Education and ELL students are considered on a case-by-case basis.
