Message from the board of directors


Dear prospective Union Day community members,

 Thank you for evaluating Union Day School. We are excited to build our children’s futures together with you. It is with great passion and dedication that we will see all Union Day children unleash their potential through exploration and inquiry in a positive environment.

We believe every child possesses unique gifts and needs opportunity to discover the community and world around them. Through purposeful hiring, selective curriculum and opportunities, modeling servant leadership, and integrating into our community, Union Day children will develop to their fullest potential.

On behalf of the Union Day School Board of Directors, welcome to your new community school, built by you and for you!
