UAS Celebrating a Major Milestone

Utica Academy of Science is Celebrating its 10 Year Anniversary

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2023: Utica Academy of Science Charter School is pleased to announce we are celebrating ten years of growth and success in the community! We have come a long way from offering grades 6-9 to expanding to K-12.  In 2013, under Dr. Tolga Hayali's leadership, the Science Academies of New York (SANY) opened Utica Academy of Science. After two successful years, UAS expanded to a second location on School Lane in Frankfort. In 2018, UAS received a five-year renewal from the New York State Board of Regents. Shortly after, UAS added an elementary school. In 2021, both of our Utica locations combined into one school in Frankfort. Utica Academy of Science is currently awaiting approval for another five-year renewal from the NYS Board of Regents.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the help of our beloved families, students, community members, and STEM supporters. Thank you for the past decade. Here’s to many more.
