Message From the Principal

Dear Universal Alcorn Middle Years Academy Families, Community Members, and Visitors,

It is with great pleasure that I am welcoming all viewers to our web page for the 2015-16 school year. Universal Alcorn MYA is a great place for young scholars to thrive.  We are committed to taking each scholar one step further in the journey of high school, college and career readiness. UAMYA is a school that prides itself on creating strong parent, teacher, student, and community relationships.  Our commitment is to provide a positive experience for all who enter our doors or ring our phones.  We are a customer service based Community School. I strongly believe that parent and community partnerships are an essential piece to the middle level experience.

Our commitment at UAMYA is to provide learning opportunities in a safe and rigorous learning environment.  In every way that schools are measured, whether it is through academics, athletics, or performing arts, UAMYA inspires our students to meet the challenges of the next level of their educational experience. I have three core beliefs about the middle grades educational experience. They are:

  • Student Development and Achievement must be our primary purpose and we must be accountable for all students’ learning and growth at high levels.
  • Parent Engagement supports and maintains the educational process while setting a personal and character development standard for students.
  • The Teaching and Learning Environment is the pathway to establish positive school experiences and to motivate students to dream big and work hard.

We believe our school initiatives support scholar efforts to reach their maximum potential.

I hope that our website will assist you in learning more about Universal Alcorn Middle Years Academy. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you would like to contact me, please email me at smallory@universalcompanies.org, or you can call me at 215-952-8595.
