Clubs and Activities
Participation in clubs and activities helps students develop a sense of camaraderie and make friendships based on common interests. We encourage students to get involved and have some fun while they learn new skills.
In addition to several sports opportunities, students at Union Colony Preparatory can participate in:
The UCPS Key Club is a student-run organization that helps to encourage students to reach out in their community and find ways to serve. Every year we have new members that are excited to join in the fun activities that improve their character, introduce them to fellow students, and improve the world around them. Service projects we have done include things such as making heart pillows for cardiac patients, working Potato Day at Centennial Park, touring and helping to sort food at the Weld Food Bank, cleaning at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keensburg, and much more. There is no better way to help yourself or those around you, so come join the UCPS Key Club! We look forward to seeing you!
Our Student Council gives students hands-on experience with democratic government. Students elect officers and student representatives in the fall. Student council members spend their time expressing concerns on behalf of their peers and developing school-spirit activities throughout the year.
National Honor Society
Our school’s chapter of the National Honor Society inducts students based on their academic success, character, leadership skills, and community service. Selected members meet monthly and take part in various service projects and plan school wide activities. Members of NHS are recognized at our yearly awards banquet and being a member is an honor that students often list on college scholarship applications.
UCPS students work diligently throughout the year to learn about different publication styles and methods. Members of the Publication staff merge their skills in writing, editing, photography, and publishing our school’s yearbook. Yearbooks are available for purchase, and you can order online through Jostens.
The drama department offers opportunities to participate in theatre both on stage and behind the scenes in several productions throughout the year. Students can audition for roles, be a part of the stage crew, and even learn to direct! Drama activities will be posted on the Theatre Spotlight callboard in the high school.
Students compete in speech tournaments in the Northern Colorado region in events such as Dramatic Interpretation, Duo, and Original Oratory. Events can be individual or partner-based, and tournaments take place on Saturdays from October to March. Students earn points and become members of the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA). They can earn distinguished honors through the Speech Team. No auditions or experience is necessary to join the team!
The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-run club that provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, and talk about issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. The group works to end homophobia and transphobia. Our GSA helps lessen the isolation that many LGBTQ students might otherwise experience.
High School Book Club
The UCPS Book Club is a group of high school students who meet to discuss books that they choose and read as a group and on their own. They meet biweekly to express their opinions, likes, and dislikes about the book they are reading.
The Timberwolf Dancers are a team of student dancers who showcase their dance talents in the annual school talent show, make up the chorus members of the school musicals, and who provide halftime entertainment during home varsity basketball games. Students of all dance levels and abilities are welcome to audition for the team. Dancers study and perform jazz, hip-hop, pom, and Broadway style dance.
