Unfortunately, this school does not prepare the students for to succeed in college or be successful with transferring to another school. Bottom line if you want your children to achieve and succeed academically, reconsider enrolling them in Universal Academy.

Posted August 5, 2009

I have been with this school for 10 years plus. My children have developed a life long friendship with their teachers and fellow students. It is a family away from home which teaches strong values and life lessons needed to be successful, honest, adults. As a College Prepretory school academics prepare our students for a successful transition into the college of their choice.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
