The goal of the Communications Department at Union Academy is to provide quality, relevant, and up-to date information for all employees, students, families, and members of the community and media.

We accomplish this through both print and digital media. The Union Academy website is a major source of information. Publications, newsletters, brochures, banners, handbooks, and postcards are also produced and printed by the Communications Department.

Specific standards and guidelines have been set to ensure all Union Academy communications, publications and other collateral present a strong, consistent public image and brand of the school.

Please consult the Union Academy Communications Standards Manual and Style Guide when writing, editing, designing, or presenting on behalf of the school.
