University High logo

University High, launching Fall 2023, is a Hamilton County Schools (HCS) program located on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) focused on relationships, relevance, and rigor.

Via the collaboration between Hamilton County Schools and UTC, University High puts equity into action by equipping students with a deep understanding of how to learn and think critically. Comprehensive literacy supports students’ learning about themselves, their studies, and the world around them.

University High is designed to serve students and their families at no cost. Through shared collaborations between UTC and Hamilton County Schools, the cost of the program is supported financially through grants and shared resources.

Students will have full access to all UTC student support services and engagement opportunities such as University Health Services, the Center for Career and Leadership Development, attending on-campus events, and the Aquatic and Recreation Center (ARC). Students will also still be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities at their zoned high school if they choose.
