College Program for Academic Success


CPAS (College Program for Academic Success) is a program that UCBA offers to students who are applying for their first year here, but struggled academically during their high school careers. One student stated, “I would not be where I am today academically if weren’t for CPAS. They helped me to really see my potential and made sure that I stayed on track with all my work.”

Students accepted into the CPAS program are accepted to Blue Ash on the condition that they agree to be part of this program. Their goal is to make sure students stay on track with school, and the program provides lots of support.

CPAS is a one school year program and if you meet all the requirements then you are able to earn regular admission status at UCBA and will not be part of the program anymore. Some of the requirements are regular meetings with your CPAS advisor, attending CPAS meetings, achieving at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of your first year, and turning in three academic progress reports per class, per semester.

The academic progress reports are something that you are to complete with each of your professors one on one. The report asks several questions about how your professor feels that you are doing in their class, and after they have filled it out you then return it to your CPAS adviser. This is a great way for you to get to know each of your professors and for them to get to know you.

If you fail to meet the requirements that CPAS has set then you will no longer be a UCBA student and cannot reapply for one year. The program can be very helpful.  CPAS is an amazing program that really helps students to strive to be the best they can be and to help them learn how to be determined with their school work.
