Mission and Vision


The mission of University Pathways Public Service Academy (The U) is to provide students with the opportunity to concurrently earn a high school diploma and an Associated Arts degree. The Uā€™s commitment is to educate, empower, and enable all students to become agents of change that are equipped with strong foundations in reading, writing, mathematical, and leadership skills. The U is dedicated to focusing on high expectations, individual academic success with families and community stakeholders that will foster respect and responsibility in the community.



As Change Agents, The U will graduate college and career-ready ambassadors who are independent, socially conscious, and prepared to embrace their roles to use public service to inspire positive change in the global community.



University Pathways Public Service Academy is committed to Diversity and Inclusion. Diversity and inclusion is  a defining feature of our core. We value the variety of personal experiences, values, and world-views that arise from differences of culture and circumstances. Such differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, and more.
