The Class of 2023 Reflects on their Time at UAS

“Success doesn’t rush. The greatest reward is the journey-” Oscar Wilde.

The Utica Academy of Science Class of 2023 is already successful. These students have completed 13 years of school filled with hard work and late nights. They have successfully participated in sports, music, and extracurricular activities. Some students even ventured outside their comfort zones to take college-level courses for credits. Other scholars devoted themselves to our cybersecurity classes, and even received certifications after passing the exam. Students achieved all this while developing friendships and making memories that will last a lifetime. 

We made this senior video so our Atoms can have a memento for years. We hope you reflect on your time at #UASCS and remember the good times. We hope you remember your journey from the second you stepped into your first Utica Academy of Science classroom to your graduation walk from the cafeteria to the gym. We wish you all the best and more success than you can measure.

Congratulations to the #Classof2023!
