Our Mission & Values
Union Catholic High School has a fifty year history of providing a quality education in the Catholic tradition. As a Catholic school, we seek to create the proper environment for nurturing the maturation of the whole person: spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. A strong academic program, a diversified athletic and activity program, and liturgical and para-liturgical worship experiences challenge the student who enters UC to develop his/her unique talents. All of our goals are clearly stated in our Mission Statement. It is our creed and our purpose.
Union Catholic Regional High School strives to prepare students to fulfill their college and career goals by fostering the student's achievement of academic standards of excellence within a value-centered education, strong in its commitment to moral teaching, ethical norms and to the establishment of a community of faith and love in a coeducational, Catholic high school setting.
In the context of a diverse student body, the Union Catholic faculty strives to develop the uniqueness of each student by fostering special talents and by providing a viable program of studies and services that is meaningful to a student's present and future needs.
Union Catholic Regional High School wholeheartedly seeks to Teach As Jesus Did and to educate students to live the gospel message.
In order to carry out the Union Catholic mission of providing a value-centered quality education in a faith based environment, Union Catholic reached out to all of its trusted stakeholders: students, parents, faculty, administration, staff, alumni, and neighbors and asked them to identify the most important values that represent UC. Overwhelmingly, our stakeholders identified the following five core values: Responsibility, Respect, Community, Compassion and Honesty. Everything Union Catholic does is centered upon its commitment to foster the development of these five core values in all of the people that make up the UC Community.
