Dear Parent/Guardian/Caregiver and UC Student,

In an effort to help prepare students obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the ongoing demands of the 21st Century, University City High School staff will conduct Core Academy:  Supporting Student Achievement Success (CASSAS), a Saturday session for students to receive additional support in their core classes (Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science) but not limited to cooking, sewing, physical education, arts, music, theatre, online learning, robotics, technology, etc. to help support specific student needs.  In order for students to participate in ASB dances and the graduation ceremony, all un-cleared absences and tardies must be cleared.  Core Academy is an opportunity to clear one school day and/or eight tardies.

We are pleased to invite your child to participate in our upcoming CORE ACADEMY Saturday session.  Please see date, place and time below.  This session is being taught/led by University City Staff.  It will be held:
