University Academy's Full Profile



University Academy says

University Academy is a K-12 college preparatory charter public school located in Kansas City, Missouri. The idea for University Academy stemmed from a family discussion about what could be done to improve educational opportunities in Kansas City, Missouri. The idea was developed and refined and eventually led to a charter school application which was sponsored by the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Although University Academy was among the first schools in Missouri to receive a charter, the first year was spent planning. University Academy opened its doors in the fall of 2000. The initial charter was approved for five years. A second charter was approved for ten years beginning in 2005. The school originally operated in sub-leased space from the University of Missouri UMKC at 5605 Troost. In addition to initially providing space for the school to operate and sponsoring our charter, UMKC has supported University Academy in many ways including providing a variety of services to the school, allowing access to UMKC facilities and resources and through our partnership with the UMKC honors program which has enhanced our extra-curricular programs.

People are saying



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
