Admissions & Enrollment

University Academy is a college-preparatory school with a rigorous academic program and serious behavioral expectations.  Regardless of the neighborhood students come from, they aspire to be leaders of tomorrow by committing to a college education.
University Academy may not be the best fit for each family.  It is one of many choices for families in the Kansas City, MO school district.  Successful University Academy students come to school on time, prepared, and are willing to put in the work needed to get accepted to top universities and colleges.  Successful students need dedicated and accountable parents/guardians.  University Academy embraces a no excuses culture, and that belief system has been the key to our success over the past 15 years.
