Great things are happening!

Applying to The UCAP School

At The UCAP School, we pride ourselves on our ability to form strong relationships with students and families. As a small school – only 140 students – we offer students a close community that supports each individual’s success. UCAP accepts students living in the Providence School District.

Students applying to The UCAP School generally fit into one of the categories below.


Students currently in 6th or 7th grade who are at least a year older than their age appropriate grade and are looking to accelerate to make up that grade. The majority of these applications come from current 6th graders entering 7th grade next year; these students will be given first preference.


Students who will be entering 7th or 8th grade next year who have not repeated a grade but are performing two or more levels below their current grade and need or want a smaller school setting.


We are always ready to work with counselors and families to determine if The UCAP School can benefit your student. Please contact us if you have someone in mind!

We encourage students who receive MLL and/or Special Education services to apply. Our team will review your application to determine if our services will best meet your needs.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please call Deb Ferrara at 401.272.0881 or email
