Welcome to University Preparation School and University Charter Middle School at CSU Channel Islands (UPS/UCMS) Website!  We are also known as University Charter Schools (UCS).  This is an exciting community that provides high quality education and care. Supportive families, hard working students, and talented staff are the school hallmarks. 


The school’s experienced staff of educators is dedicated to providing every child with the best education possible.  There is a strong emphasis on academics skills in all areas.  At the same time, staff realizes the importance of developing in each child an attitude of self-respect and skills for a successful life.  Many special services supplement the regular program as the faculty works hard to provide a variety of opportunities for students to form meaningful relationships with peers and adults.
