COVID-19 UPDATE!

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.​

A letter from our Superintendent/CEO, Penny Nixon Ed.D.

About Universal Creighton Charter School

Universal Creighton Charter Elementary School (UCCS) is a community enriched educational institution serving Philadelphia students in grades K through eight. Our goal is to teach and model skills that enable students to work cooperatively with others while respecting the diverse culture in which they reside. UCCS scholars are educated in an academically rigorous environment that provides community resources and extracurricular opportunities designed to nurture their development into well-balanced adolescents who are empowered with positive self-images.

Connecting Parents and Schools to Increase Achievement

We encourage you to participate in one of the many opportunities such as the Home and School Association, School Advisory Councils (SAC) and/or volunteer as a teacher assistant/aide, food pantry worker, or just read to our preschoolers.
