Local libraries are just a click away for UCS students, thanks to community partnerships

Area realtors often share with us that one reason why Utica Community Schools remains a destination district is that it is a complete package for families seeking quality services.

Our nationally-recognized schools sit in neighborhoods that are honored as among the safest in the country. Family-centered churches and businesses serve our residents and provide a small-town caring and atmosphere in Michigan’s second largest school district.

It is an ideal community to live, play, work and – most importantly – learn.

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.
