Urban Scholastic Center (USC) is a non-profit Christian ministry located in the heart of urban Kansas City, Kansas. Our current students – and the hundreds that came before them – are the inspiration behind the 15 years of USC in our community. As it was when we started, our focus continues to be on the holistic development of students and families in the Wyandotte County & KCK areas!

Our Mission

Our mission is to build leaders from here for here, through Jesus and education.

We fulfill our mission in three ways:


The core of building leaders through Jesus and education is sharing the Gospel with students. The USC is intentional about the centrality of the Gospel in everything that we do.


Social Responsibility is grounded in strong moral character. The USC emphasizes the development of character through classroom instruction, cultural experiences, regular community service, and more.


The USC provides academic enrichment and support for students in the areas of STEAM, computer science & robotics, reading, chess, music, and more. With an emphasis on college access, readiness, and matriculation.
