The school seeks to provide educational opportunities that will allow every student to achieve to the best of his/her ability and to develop as a “whole person.”

Diversity Statement

The University Heights Academy community strives to find unity within its diverse population of students, faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees. Inclusion is an educational imperative in the development of each child’s mind, body, and spirit. By appreciating our commonalities and celebrating our differences, we hope to produce contributing members of a global community.

School Philosophy

At University Heights Academy we strive to enable each student to: (1) learn to read, write, listen, and speak effectively; (2) attain competence in fundamental algebraic and geometric concepts and techniques; (3) develop physical coordination and balance, learn to follow directions, and develop an awareness of order and fair play; and (4) have varied experiences in the areas of music, art, foreign language, the social sciences, and literature.


The primary goals of University Heights Academy are:

1. To provide the proper academic base for the student who wishes

to pursue higher learning; and

2. To ensure physical and social growth and development for the

student through its programs and activities.
