2019 Application Process

The UCS secondary programs include the Utica Academy for International Studies (UAIS), the Utica Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology (UCMST), and the Utica Center for Science and Industry (UCSI).

In addition, eighth grade students attending Heritage, Davis, and Jeannette junior high schools that are residing in the attendance boundary for Stevenson High School are also invited to apply for the Stevenson Manufacturing, Automation, and Design Engineering (MADE) Academy.

The UCS Secondary Specialty Programs are part of our district’s “Portfolio of Choices” that support the unique needs, talents and interests of our students. Students also have the opportunity to work with students from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

The specialty programs are offered hand in hand with the nationally-recognized programs and services available through our district’s four comprehensive high schools.

The programs are open for consideration for all eighth-grade families. Students begin attending the programs as ninth-graders.
