Attention Seniors 

UCS graduating seniors are invited to apply for the 2022 Superintendent’s Scholarship awards program. The scholarships are funded with proceeds from the Utica Community Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence’s annual Evening of Excellence and other sources.  

Online applications will go live on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. Students are required to submit a copy of their high school transcript as well as receive one recommendation from a teacher, school counselor, administrator, or non-family member. The individual making the recommendation will need to submit an online appraisal. 

In addition to the Superintendent’s Scholarship, there are several optional scholarship opportunities within the application – the Brett Klenow Scholarship, the Stefan’s Hope Scholarship, the Larry M. Smith Memorial Scholarship, and the Richard LaBaere Educational Scholarship.   

Students are encouraged to complete the online application which becomes available on December 7 at: www.UticaK12.org/SuperintendentScholarship or on the UCS home page under “Students” in the mid-menu on the center of the page. The deadline to submit the completed application and appraisal is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2022.   

In addition, our dates for graduation have been approved.  Utica Schools will be returning to the O’Rena at Oakland University for our 2022 Commencement exercises.  Eisenhower High School will have its graduation on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at 10 a.m.  More information to come!
