Excellence in Education
A logo on the wall of Union Colony Schools shows a large intertwined U and C layed over a background of the schools values.

At Union Colony Schools (UCS), our collective mission is to provide a superior, tuition-free college preparatory education for the K-12 students of Greeley. To do this, our team of certified educators comes together around a set of educational values that guide all of our teaching and learning. These values encompass the vision we have for our students and their future and are a roadmap which we can follow throughout a student's 12+ years at UCS. Here are our values, which you’ll see our students and teachers put into action each and every day: 


Union Colony students are honest and ethical, and they take responsibility for their actions. Our community is committed to truth, justice, fairness, and a willingness to stand up for what is right.

Growth Mindset

Union Colony students embrace challenges, learn from their mistakes, and view effort as a pathway to mastery. Students who develop a growth mindset achieve at higher levels throughout their lives and careers.

Lifelong Learning

Union Colony students are curious, adaptable, and innovative. As they take ownership of their learning they are open to new experiences and more likely to learn and grow throughout their lives.


Union Colony students act with empathy, helping those in need and treating one another with kindness and understanding. We foster a positive school culture that is safe and welcoming for all students.

Good Citizenship

Union Colony students contribute to the community in positive ways and take responsibility for their actions. As a community, we value honesty, fairness, kindness, and compassion.


Union Colony Schools students set high standards for themselves and work hard

to achieve them. Through a commitment to excellence, learning, and growth, they

develop the skills and values to be successful in college, career, and life.

We invite you to visit Union Colony Schools to see for yourself how we live these values everyday. Our commitment to excellence in education begins with our youngest students and continues until graduation.
