Music & Arts at UCS

Music & Arts at UCS
The band room at Union Colony Preparatory School. It is brightly lit with high ceilings and many music stands and chairs.

We believe art education is essential to a well-balanced, whole-child education. While inadequate funding and pressure to increase reading and math scores has forced many schools to make difficult cuts to art and music programs, Union Colony Schools have maintained our commitment to tuition-free equal access to art, music and theater. Instead of viewing art education as a side to more important academic learning, we believe that art education is an answer to improving test scores and academic performance

Union Colony Elementary School K-5

All Union Colony K-5 students enjoy weekly music and art classes taught by certified, experienced teachers. We see our students thrive in these classes, unlocking skills and potential they didn’t know existed. Additionally, our elementary teachers incorporate art and music into daily learning, weaving songs, skills and creativity into the curriculum. 


Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, and verbal skill. A quality music education has been shown to improve development of self-control, planning, and verbal intelligence. Fine Arts learning can also improve motivation, engagement, creativity, communication, collaboration, and teamwork—all skills that the leaders of tomorrow will need!

Union Colony Preparatory School 6-12

At the Preparatory level, our vibrant arts program includes a diverse offering of classes that are available to every student. From ceramics to painting and drawing, our 6th-12th grade students learn new skills, problem solve and take risks in art classes. 


On the musical side of things, we have a variety of choir classes and a successful competitive jazz band. Our Drama department also offers opportunities to participate in theater, both on-stage and behind the scenes, in several productions throughout the year. 


We believe everyone needs a platform for self-expression and joy, and we help our students find theirs by providing opportunities to try new things while supporting their confidence. There is something for everyone in Union Colony Schools tuition-free arts and music programs. Join us and open a door to imagination, creativity, and fun!
