Supporting a Community Tradition of Service

There is a fabric to our community that continues to be passed down from generations to generations.

It is a spirit defined by care, concern and the importance of helping others, particularly when it comes to the students and families in our community.


What's the cost of educating a child

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.
Utica Community Schools, Michigan’s second largest school district, is recognized nationally in education. Student achievement in the district continues to outpace local, state and national levels, and the district’s graduation rate of 92.4 percent is more than 12 points higher than Michigan averages. The district prepares students for success in a global economy through a focus of four key strategies: providing academic excellence, preparing positive digital citizens, promoting student innovation and ensuring accountability.
