Longer School Day and Year
To ensure that every student masters each and every standard, we provide students with a longer school day and longer year. We also provide homework help and after-school tutoring, Saturday School for students who need extra support, and double periods of English and Math daily.
Targeted Curriculum and Assessment
ULC develops its curriculum directly from the New York State Learning Standards that ensures students master a core set of basic academic skills before mastering higher-level material. We also use internally developed assessments to build a culture of continuous reflection and improvement.
Without great teachers, nothing else matters. We believe in giving our teachers the time and professional tools to do their jobs effectively.
We have high academic and behavioral expectations, which demand significant amounts of extra support before, during, and after school.

Our school competes in Charter School leagues in basketball and soccer, and all students are eligible to join one of the campus' 16 PSAL Varsity teams. Students can also participate in other extracurriculars, including dance, step, cheer, art, photography, music, gaming, film, podcasting, video production, debate, and theater. Students can also start new clubs!
