Ubuntu Academy came to life after watching a program that talked about how our schools are failing to give our students the life skills to survive. Kids today are taught the information that is going to be on the state/gov tests and are not exposed to classes and programs that build character. Going to college is the goal for many students but not all. Having transferable job skills at a younger age gives those non-college bound students a major advantage. UA is here to expose students to a variety of different options besides college that they could have a very successful career at such as; Plumbing, Electrical, Carpentry, and so on. Our main goal is to expose more options to our students and to share with them a more variety of pathways to the successful future of their choice.
