Fall Open House Scheduled At Union Catholic High School

SCOTCH PLAINS — Union Catholic (UC) High School will host a fall open house on Tuesday, October 5, beginning at 7: 30 p. m. The school is located at 1600 Martine Avenue in Scotch Plains.

This information presentation will be primarily for families with students in grades five through eight.

The presentation will cover an overall view of the academic programs and the use of the many technological offerings at UC, especially the “Anytime, Anywhere” learning through the integration of laptop computers and the curriculum.

Going into its third year, this program was mandatory for all incoming freshmen this fall. This program has been praised by teachers, students and parents alike as a means to increase the types of learning methods that encourage the student to seek out more information and become more involved in their education.

While many colleges provide laptops to their incoming freshmen, UC is the first high school in the state to require its students to have laptop computers.

New this year to the curriculum is program affiliation at the junior honors level with two local colleges for credit in chemistry, biology, Spanish, American History and English. Japanese has also been added to the Foreign Language curriculum.

Complementing the challenging academics is the highly competitive athletic schedule, which has brought UC Union County championships in volleyball and soccer. Individual students also excel in basketball and swimming.

The Music Department has added choral music sections and encourages students to compete in highly selective local, state and regional choirs. The instrumental section of this department is continually expanding and building

with challenging musical selections. The Art Department now only uses the normal mediums for art expression, but computer generated programs also are used to create art pieces.

The Performing Arts Company of the school annually performs a spring musical. It incorporates many members of the student body for the performing and backstage crew. This past spring’s show was nominated for five awards in the Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star competition.

Extracurricular activities in the form ofspecialty clubs, some nationally honored for their programs, encourage members to be active at UC and then go beyond into the community.

On hand at the open house will be administrative staff and faculty to answer any questions.
