Union School Corporation is a small, rural school in Randolph County, Indiana. It was formed in 1952 after the closing of three small high schools: Modoc High School, Losantville High School, and Huntsville High School. For the first five years, students attended the old Modoc High School. In 1957, the new building was finished, and all students were relocated to the new building. In 1968 an addition was completed allowing Blountsville School, which housed grades 1-8, to be closed and consolidated with Union. In 2002, the building was renovated into the facility it is today. Union School Corporation has 255 students in grades K-12. Our students are able to build great relationships with their peers and faculty members.
Gateway to College: Union High School students learn from each other while experiencing a rigorous curriculum that includes four Advanced Placement (AP) classes; Calculus, Biology, English, and US History. Our students have the opportunity to participate in Early College where they can earn college credit through Ivy Tech Community College. Ivy Tech also offers a TACOU (Take a Class on Us) where students can take a college course at no cost to them. Union students have been admitted to many universities throughout the country, and major Indiana universities, such as Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Butler, Evansville, DePauw, Wabash, Ball State, Indiana State, Anderson, Taylor, Rose Hulman, Manchester, and Valparaiso.
Laptops Provided: All UHS students grades 7 through 12 will have 1-to-1 technology capabilities with laptops for individual use for the 2016-17 school year. International students are provided laptops as part of the exchange programs.
Housing: Our students will be staying with host families in the community. These families have been pre-screened as suitable homes for hosting international students. Some faculty members have hosted students in the past and look forward to hosting more students in the future.
Special Diplomas: The Union High School offers an Academic Honors Diploma and Technical Honors for students who participate in our vocational programs.
Academic Society: National Honor Society is open to International students who are juniors or seniors and ranked in the upper third of their class based on Grade Point Average. Candidates must have outstanding traits of scholarship, leadership, school service, and character. All juniors and seniors may apply for membership.
Athletic & Extra-curricular Activities: Union High School promotes a broad range of sanctioned athletic teams for both boys and girls. Competition in archery, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, golf, softball, track and field, and volleyball is on-going throughout the school year. Union students also enjoy a broad range of extra-curricular activities including academic team, drama, Spanish club, and student council.
