The Utica Center for Science and Industry (UCSI) is a marriage of rigorous academic content and relevant, real-world applications of this knowledge through projects. UCSI students have access to work-based learning opportunities, including job shadowing, mentoring and work-site internships.
All ninth graders take CSI Design Principles, which focuses on art foundations, technical illustration (CAD) and the Design Thinking Process. They also take two core classes, English and geometry, both taught in a constructivist, student-as-discoverer format.
Tenth graders choose one of the three Career and Technical Education pathways: Multimedia Production, Mechatronics (Advanced Robotics Systems) or Engineering Technology, and enroll in that pathway’s related elective course. Students also take English 10 and the appropriate math placement in either Algebra I or Algebra II.
