The contagiousness of the omicron variant, intensely increasing national case numbers, and predictions for a significant post-holiday surge necessitate closely monitoring trends and implementing safety precautions to protect the Universal community. Considering this information, Synchronous virtual learning will begin after Winter Break and continue through Friday, January 14, 2022. On Tuesday, January 18, 2022, in-person learning will resume following the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. While we anticipate the building closures through January 18, 2022, Universal will continuously monitor local transmission data, risk levels, and CDC and State guidance to confirm the precise timing of re-opening. Please contact your principal with questions and concerns.​

We are now hiring for the 2021-2022 School Year!

"Universal is a great place to work because it has strong leaders, a cohesive staff, community involvement, and ongoing support from management to curriculum. The support offered from the leaders at Universal has encouraged me as a teacher to move up to a leadership role. The leaders at Universal recognized my strengths and provided the positive feedback I needed to become a confident coach. This allowed me to pass along best practices to others and see fellow teachers in our company grow. I will always love working for a company that truly strives to see their scholars and staff grow and become the best possible educators and leaders they can be."

- Julia Harrison, Universal Daroff Literacy Coach
