Principal’s Message

Dear Aspire UCS Families,

Welcome back to school. I hope you enjoyed a restful summer break! In November of 2022, I will have completed my 21st year working at Aspire University Charter School. This year marks the start of my 17th year as the Aspire UCS Principal. At Aspire, our goal is to ensure equitable outcomes for all students by getting students to and through college. Our UCS team is committed to being partners in education with families. Working together,
we know we will have a successful and fun school year. I look forward to making wonderful memories with each of you. Please know my door is always open to you to celebrate and problem solve.

Laura Thompson | Principal | Aspire University Charter School
