About Us

UA Building 10-1-09Located in Detroit, Michigan, Universal Academy (UA) is a non-discriminatory, independent, K-12 public school. Our student body is a reflection of the diverse communities we serve within the Greater Detroit area.

The Universal Academy Difference

Authorized by Oakland University, UA offers an outstanding college preparatory education based on Michigan’s core curriculum and the study of international cultures, including a language, culture, and history different from one’s own. We encourage students to express and share their wealth of ethnic traditions, values, and experiences, thus enriching and nurturing one another.

Our certified, experienced teachers hold degrees from nationally and internationally renowned colleges and universities. With uncommon dedication, professional and paraprofessional staff and support personnel work as a cohesive team with one common purpose: a superior education for our students, the decision-makers and leaders of tomorrow.

UA staff work closely with students and parents, sharing information and providing the personal attention necessary to help each child excel. As a result, 100% of our students graduate and gain admission to colleges and universities, and more than $840,000 in scholarships were awarded to the graduating seniors of 2010.
