University High School is a 9th-12th grade, a free public charter high school located on the campus of California State University, Fresno. University High School provides an accelerated college preparatory education to approximately 480 students who share a common interest in music. Students receive a strong foundation in music and the liberal arts and sciences in a small high school environment while benefiting from the opportunities available on a large public university campus.
University High School traditionally accepts incoming 9th graders who apply in their 8th-grade year. Depending on our current class capacity, University High School also accepts transfer students who wish to enter University High School in their 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade year. University High School suggests all interested parents and students come to our informational days in the Fall and Winter.
All students who attend University High School will master content and engage in skills that we think to prepare all students for whatever choice they make when they leave high school. All students benefit from attending University High School, although University High School is not the school for everyone. Students need to be committed to the program we offer to be successful. If you think we are the right school for you, please apply and join us.
