About Union Academy


Union Academy (UA) is a National School of Character dedicated to educating the whole child, providing challenging, high quality instruction, strong character development in all students and collaborative family and community involvement.

UA was founded in the year 2000 and is the first and longest-operating public charter school in Union County. The school began as a K-4 school with 300 students. Today, there are more than 2,000 students in grades K-12 with 275 employees. It is common to have at least 1,500 students on the waitlist to enroll in UA each year.

After 18 years of planning, fundraising and wishing, UA recently finished Phases Two and Three of a $20 million expansion plan that brought to life the school's dream since it opened- uniting all students and staff on one campus.
