Universal Academy, a Texas Education Agency “A-Rated” Charter School has been approved by Cambridge Assessment International Education to offer its world-class Cambridge programs.
Cambridge is an international education program taught in more than 1300 primary schools in over 110 countries around the world. It is typically for learners aged 5 to 11 years, and develops skills and understanding in English, mathematics, science, ICT and Cambridge Global Perspectives – a cross-curricular subject that inspires learners to be curious and think independently.
