Welcome to our Palestine Campus!

Thank you for visiting the website for the Palestine campus of the UT Tyler University Academy! We are excited about what is happening on our campus.

Through Project-Based Learning instruction, our students are able to develop important skills that will prepare them for success in an ever-changing world. Our students collaborate with their peers to solve real-world, authentic problems and learn strategies to help discover the answers on their own. Our teachers facilitate student learning by guiding them through the learning process rather than lecturing and direct instruction.

We also have a supportive, caring and nurturing culture on our campus. At the UT Tyler University Academy, we really are a family. We want all of our students to feel welcome and at home on our campus, while they are working with their fellow students each day.

Thanks again for visiting. If you are already a part of our UA family, we hope you enjoy the site. If you are considering joining our family, feel free to look around the site to gather more information. If you have any more questions, please give us a call. Or, better yet, stop by and take a tour of our campus and come see all of the amazing things that are happening at the Palestine Campus of the UT Tyler University Academy!

If you have further questions or would like to schedule a tour please feel free to call our campus at (903) 727-2326.


The school day will be from 7:55 a.m. until 2:15 p.m.
