Archived Stories for Union County Public Schools
Back to School
Union County Early College students have headed back to school. For our students and staff, summer has ended and a new year has begun. On Aug. 6, the 2015-16 school year officially began as UCEC begins its ninth year of the New Schools program in Union County.
After graduating the largest class in May, UCEC begins this school year with the largest enrollment to date. One hundred new freshmen have accepted the opportunity to participate in this exciting and rigorous academic program, allowing them to earn a high school diploma and Associate’s degree simultaneously. As these students will quickly learn, this is more than just a school, it is a community and family.
We all look forward to another great year of learning, smiles, tears, excitement, and fun. Welcome back, we’re glad you’re here!
