Union Academy is a National School of Character which means we have demonstrated that character development has had a positive impact on academics, student behavior, and school climate. Character development is a journey we are on with our students through modeling, intentional conversations, and connection. It is important to integrate our eight character traits: Compassion, Adaptability, Respect, Responsibility, Optimism, Trustworthiness, Perseverance, and Initiative into everything we do as a school.
In our middle school we focus on character development through our advisory classes. Our character is informed through well-being, belonging, and engagement (characterstrong.com). We celebrate good character through special programs, activities and assemblies.
Sixth Grade’s community service goals are to help with the environment. For the 2023-24 school year, our students will be helping out at the Union County Community Shelter.
