Welcome to UCC Acosta Middle School
UCC Acosta Middle School is a nonprofit technology and skilled-trades focused charter school with an environment that fosters high expectations, hard work, and strong parental involvement that will lead all students to rigorous high schools and colleges and equip them with skills to be competitive in dynamic future job markets.
A few of the components of this new exciting school include:
- Focus on technology (engineering, Lego leagues, computer coding/programming, etc.) and trades (carpentry, electrical, etc.)
- Project Lead the Way Pre-Engineering Curriculum
- Blended Learning* methods (“pods”/station and rotation/flipped classrooms): Partial delivery of content/instruction via digital and online media. Project-based learning where students explore real-world challenges and acquire depth of knowledge
- Genius Hour: students follow their passions and learn about topics that interest them.
*Blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace and at least in part at a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home.
