The first time I walked into UCAP, the poise and confidence of my student host told me this was a good, safe place, a place where youngsters who'd repeated an elementary grade could accelerate, could catch up. My host was proud of her school; she had expectations ("I want to go to college and law school."). I taught 8th grade for 15 years; I believe Middle school is the last chance for kids to develop strong skills and intellectual curiosity not only for the challenges of high school, but also for life. If they can't find success, if they don't "belong," if they don't have aspirations for the future, they can easily fall through the cracks in another school, and never go on to earn that high school diploma. What are the job prospects for a young adult who has no diploma? UCAP's remarkable teachers and staff pull them up and give kids that second chance. UCAP provides them a future.
