Welcome to Uncommon Charter High School

Uncommon Charter High School is a free, public high school located between the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights. We prepare each student to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college by developing within them extraordinary academic skills, a life-long passion for learning, and the values that define strong character. Students who attend an Uncommon elementary and middle school have the opportunity to attend an Uncommon high school, including UCHS for grades 9 to 12.

College Access and Success

Our college success team works with our students to ensure our high school students are prepared for college and beyond.

Preparing for College and Beyond

The high school’s College Access and Success team is active in organizing school visits by college recruiters as well as student trips to college campuses. The team further supports college preparation by coordinating student participation in summer and year-long enrichment programs to strengthen preparation for college. Our college team spends much of its time providing support to alumni as they navigate college life.

Our students receive support with SAT and ACT tests, collecting high school transcripts, editing personal essays, filing FAFSA, and submitting college applications.
