6 Ways We Put Our Values in Action

6 Ways We Put Our Values in Action
Students from Union Colony Schools engage with a therapy dog from Love on a Leash Therapy Pets.

We are a mission driven school. Everyday, our teachers and students put into practice our guiding values as we strive to provide rigorous, tuition-free academics, and character education to develop responsible and respectful citizens. Union Colony Schools integrate our core values into the daily curriculum, producing students who exemplify respect for themselves and our community.

Union Colony’s talented teachers weave character development into daily teaching using stories and lessons to illustrate how character traits are essential to success. Our small schools are just the right size for teachers and staff to help students build positive character. Here are a few places you’ll see our values in action: 

🔹Our connection to Aims Community College, located just across the street from UC Preparatory School, encourages students to enroll for tuition-free college credits and promotes lifelong learning. We even offer the ASCENT program which can help hardworking students earn an associates degree completely free! 

🔹Our welcoming community is everything. From events to PTO and even visits from local therapy dogs to increase good feelings in our schools, we act with compassion and care for each and every member of our community. 

🔹Union Colony Elementary School students recently demonstrated good citizenship by donating their barrel art collaboration for display at this summer’s Greeley Stampede. And our Preparatory School Student Council donated much needed items to the Weld Food Bank this holiday season.  

🔹From Kindergarten through 12th grade, Union Colony students engage in foundational academics and character development aimed at growing the whole child. Our curriculum is authentic and rigorous, supports the needs of all students, and meets or exceeds Colorado State Learning Standards.

🔹Built into every student’s day is targeted extra support time that we like to call What I Need Time (WIN). We support students to adopt a growth mindset as we strengthen all-around academic skills.

🔹Our student athletes demonstrate integrity on and off the field. From learning to be a part of a team to league competitions, our well-rounded offerings give students the opportunity to grow positive character traits for a lifetime. 

Commitment to our mission is what has earned Union Colony Preparatory School the distinction of top 25% of college prep public high schools in all of Colorado. Come see the difference a tuition-free rigorous education can make for your K-12 student. We’re enrolling for Fall 2023.
