Exceptional Growth From K-12

Exceptional Growth From K-12

At Union Colony Schools, we believe in the ability and potential of every one of our students. We believe in their goals and the bright future they are creating. We honor the hard work and commitment our students put into achieving their dreams by providing a nurturing and challenging education that enables them to grow and achieve beyond the standard.

Union Colony elementary school students consistently meet or exceed math and language arts growth benchmark scores on the Colorado Measures of Academic Success exams. That means our students are making more than one year's progress in just one short school year. Additionally, our English Language Learners exceed growth benchmarks, illustrating the success of our dedicated language teachers and their innovative approach. 

Our high school students continue to return impressive graduation rates and SAT scores earning Union Colony Preparatory School an exceeding mark from the Colorado State Education Department for Post-Secondary and Workforce Readiness. Our students are meeting their goals and going on to bright futures.

Growth = Success

Our upward momentum is due to the dedication and expertise of our incredible teachers. No matter when a student joins us on their school journey, we begin working to close academic gaps and help get students to or above grade level. We do this through creative, standards-based teaching and 1:1 attention that serves the individual needs of each student.

Union Colony teachers offer rigorous academics and hold students to high standards of behavior and academic achievement. Our students receive personalized attention that supports individual learning styles, needs and interests. At the elementary level, we firmly believe that the quality, standards-based teaching and learning that occurs all year prepares our students to pass and surpass standardized tests.

Testing as Information

Standardized testing is just a snapshot of where a student is in a particular stage of development. It measures growth in a few subject areas over the course of an academic year, but it does not measure potential, nor does it fully assess a student’s broad knowledge and skills.


At Union Colony, we use testing data to help teachers plan instruction, set goals and empower action. Testing data helps us to target needs for What I Need Time (WIN), where students receive targeted support in math and language arts. Additionally, we frequently communicate with parents when learning gaps are identified and propose solutions to help each student progress.

Success Beyond Numbers

Testing data is just one indicator of our excellence at Union Colony Schools. We believe you will also see evidence of success in the smiles on our student’s faces and the strength of our community. 


Our close-knit school culture builds positive, respectful relationships that support students long beyond the walls of our school. And our commitment to character education aids students in becoming leaders among their peers. 


If you would like to see your K-12 student accelerate his/her learning in a supportive and caring community, we have a few spots open for this school year and we are now opening enrollment for the 2023-24 school year. Get started at Union Colony tuition-free public schools today.
