Mission & Vision
Union Day School Mission Statement
Union Day School community works together to provide students rigor-content rich curriculum parallel with the International Baccalaureate ideals of the Learner Profile. We strive to build a nurturing environment where each student demonstrates a spirit of respect, responsibility, global mindedness and a commitment to academic and civic excellence.
Union Day School's vision is to promote and foster thoughtful, caring, and creative students. They will be critical thinkers and problem solvers. Students will be confident, prepared for the future success and achieve their academic and social potential as life-long learners in the 21st Century. Global mindedness: We emphasize this as an understanding of how the world is organized and interconnected and the possibilities and constraints facing its people. Globally literate students analyze and think critically about the world and their roles in it. They become fluent investigators of the world, celebrating our diversity as global citizens.
We recognize every child has a unique voice and a natural curiosity about the world that is just waiting to bloom. We are offering a nurturing and joyous environment designed to spark young minds, spur discovery, and foster engagement with new ideas and knowledge. Every day, we help children develop the critical foundational skills needed for a lifetime of learning. We believe in a collaborative, integrated curriculum that includes diverse perspectives that yield in-depth, creative thinking and better problem-solving skills.
Union Day School is dedicated to their mission of creating passionate learners today, and global leaders for tomorrow. The faculty and staff are purposeful in their interactions with students as they have created a nurturing and supportive environment where students can thrive in their love of learning and exploration.
UDS helps children develop the critical foundational skills needed for a lifetime of learning, including encouraging students to pursue their passions and apply what they know to solve meaningful problems.
The Union Day School Mascot
Kings of the land and the sky we are; proud gryphons.
Throughout history and mythology, the gryphon denotes strength, courage, boldness, gentleness, vigilance, fleet, virtue, protection, dedication, and loyalty to name a few. Gryphon images can be seen in architecture and depictions guarding priceless treasure.
The mighty gryphon aptly represents Union Day with its forelegs and head of an eagle combined with the fierce body of the lion. The combination of both the King of the sky and the King of land accurately represent Union Day students being well rounded through wisdom, intelligence and strength through continually pursuing personal excellence.
May the mighty gryphon guard over the students of Union Day as they guarded ancient treasures, inspire them to soar to their highest potential and become masters of knowledge. May the proud gryphons of Union Day go forth into the world with boldness, virtue and loyalty.
