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.

We also have materials in school guidance offices. Translated materials are also available in Arabic, Spanish, Albanian and Urdu.
