Middle School

High School-Level Mathematics and Science Coursework

Through the NYC DOE’s Algebra for All program, UAI students receive academic supports in sixth and seventh grade that prepare them to take Algebra in their eighth grade year. Eighth grade students have the opportunity to take the Algebra regents exam before they complete middle school.

In their eighth grade year, UAI students are also offered high school Earth Science or Living Environment as their science course. At the end of the year, students have the opportunity to take the corresponding regents exam before they complete middle school.

New York City Department of Education DREAM-SHSI Program

The NYC DOE’s Determination, Resiliency, Enthusiasm, Ambition, and Motivation (DREAM) program prepares eligible seventh graders to take the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) in eighth grade. Students attend sessions outside of school hours. To be eligible, students must:

  • Be a current NYC resident
  • Be currently in the seventh grade in a DOE public or charter school
  • Meet income requirements based on federal guidelines
  • Have scored a minimum of 3.0 on the 2018 grade six NY State English language arts and math exams

Middle School and High School

New York University BEST Program

The Building Excellence in Science and Technology Program (BEST) at New York University (NYU) is a pre-college enrichment program for talented and motivated African American, Hispanic/Latino, Alaskan Native or American Indian and economically disadvantaged White or Asian middle and high school students attending middle and high school in Community School District 13. The program’s goal is to:

  • prepare students to be competitive so that they are accepted into a selective college of their choice
  • encourage and increase the number of historically under-represented minority groups in the science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) careers, health-related fields and licensed professions.

College Access for All

Through the New York City Department of Education, UAI receives additional funding and support to create a true college-ready culture in both our middle and high schools. Our eleventh graders are offered the opportunity to take the SAT free of charge and many are eligible to apply to CUNY schools with no admissions fee. For more information on our college supports, see our College Support page.

High School

Advanced Placement (AP) for All

The New York City Department of Education is supporting UAI to continue offering additional Advanced Placement courses every year. At present, we offer AP English Language, Spanish Language, Environmental Science, and Biology courses, with plans to expand to additional AP courses for the 2019-2020 school year.



Computer Science for All

High School students are offered the opportunity to take computer science in ninth grade. In this course, students learn the fundamentals of computer programming that will enable them to pursue careers in technology fields.

 

Athletics

Our Athletics Department operates as a Campus which includes all the High schools in our building.  We offer a variety of sports on the High School level that compete in the Public School Athletic League.  Presently, we offer UAI students Varsity Volleyball and Soccer in the fall and Basketball in the winter. Middle Schoolers are invited to participate in the Champs Basketball Program.

Each season our program grows stronger and stronger at Adams Street Campus. Our Volleyball Team made it to the playoffs for the first time this year since the start of the program in 2015.  Our Basketball team holds the most winningest record for the school. The girls hold the PSAL Brooklyn B North Championship for 2015/16 and 2017/18 Season. The girls appeared in the Final Four in 2016 and excel past the first round of playoffs each year.   In 2016 the Lady Eagles graduated Davida Warren, who received an athletic scholarship to compete on the collegiate level. Currently, the Lady Eagles are Leading the League 8-0 and are projected as one of the top teams in the PSAL B Division.
