The UCAP School is an independent public school under the supervision of the Providence School Department. The UCAP School works with approximately 140 students in grades 7 and 8. All students selected for the program have had a history of academic challenges and many have repeated at least one grade. Students are given the opportunity to accelerate in grade if they have been held back, and those who have not, are working towards addressing their own learning loss so that when they do return to their sending districts, they are ready to engage with on grade level work. Through a program of accelerated instruction, counseling and career education, the staff of The UCAP School will seek to prepare these students for successful transition into high school.
The UCAP School Mission:
The UCAP School seeks to intervene in the lives of middle school students who are at risk of dropping out of high school. We provide relevant curriculum and enrichment opportunities to support the academic, social and emotional development of our students to ensure a successful transition from middle school to high school. We stress the importance of taking responsibility, having high expectations, setting goals, completing high school, working hard and having fun.
The UCAP School Vision:
A supportive community in which all students thrive academically, socially and emotionally; graduate from high school; and lead productive and meaningful lives.
