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.​

About Universal Institute Charter School

The mission of the Universal Institute Charter School is to provide a school to career academic program that emphasizes self-sufficiency, civic responsibility and problem solving through mathematics, language arts and the sciences. The educational program utilizes community resources within the school's immediate neighborhood through a variety of before, during, and after school partnerships with families, businesses, social agencies, civic groups and community organizations to enhance the academic program and to support students and their families.

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 scholars.
