Families Look to the New School Year

New Date As we begin 2019, we look forward to all of the opportunities that come with a new year. Pre-kindergarten, fifth-graders, eighth-graders, seniors (Class of 2019) as well as the grades in between are preparing for their next great adventures! The School District of University City is also preparing for a smooth transition for students.

As parents and students make plans for the 2019-20 school year, they can rest assured the District has the educational infrastructure in place to ensure success at all levels. Online enrollment for new students will be OPEN for the upcoming school year during Transition Week, scheduled for Jan. 29-31, 2019. (Note new dates for middle and high school events due to inclement weather school closure.) More details and links are available at

The District’s approach to delivering a modern learning experience, Learning Reimagined, along with complementary initiatives and programs strengthens District offerings. New experiences await, across all grade levels, across all schools.
