Sixth Grade Strong, No Matter the Distance
Friday, September 25th, 2020—The sixth grade teachers go the extra mile to show their support, strength, unity and team spirit for their students. Teachers, Ms. Latray, Mrs. Cowen and Mr. Farnach showcases their unified teamwork with custom t-shirts that read, ‘6th Grade Strong, No Matter the Distance.’ While students may not be able to see each other every day, distance will not keep them down from working together as a team, and uniting as one - even if done virtually. Keep up the great work, Atoms!
World Teachers Day
Monday, October 5th, 2020—To say we appreciate our teachers is an understatement. From their creativity, to answering the call of duty and going above and beyond, to guiding, educating and teaching our Atoms, and so much more. Today on World Teachers Day, we celebrate all that you do! Thank you for all your hard work each and every day.

The 2020 - 2021 School Year: Welcome Back Atoms!
Tuesday, September 8th, 2020—Over the past few weeks we had the privilege of welcoming back our Atom for the 2020 - 2021 school year. The first day of school is one that brings so much joy and happiness to not only our teachers but to students and their families alike. While this year may look and feel a bit different we are embracing this new normal, and Utica Academy of Science Charter Schools are adhering to the New York State guidelines for health and safety.
Students and families have the option for either hybrid or online learning. Elementary Atoms who are participating in hybrid learning meet two days a week, with three days of online learning. Middle school Atoms have a classroom size maxed at nine students per classroom. Mask wearing and social distancing are maintained.
While the halls feel a bit empty in the high school, as teachers are back in the classrooms, we virtually welcomed back our eldest Atoms. High school students will be doing full-time remote learning, with the option of a one day in-person mentorship program for tutoring and or social emotional well being.
We wish all of our Atoms the best success and luck this academic year. Many Atoms, One family.
Today we honor those who lost their lives and families whose lives were tragically changed on this day 19 years ago. We thank all our brave first responders and active duty veteran military. United we stand.
