The mission of University City High School is to educate students to become productive and responsible citizens, who realize their full potential through life long learning.
In order to realize the mission of University City High School, the members of the school community have developed and adopted school-wide learning goals for all students to guide them in course selection as well as college and career decisions. Students must demonstrate at the end of their senior year, through a portfolio of work and a senior exhibition, that they have met all of the learning goals of the school.
