What kind of programs & services are available?

  • Personalized Learning Plans - Assessments will be performed periodically to determine how your child will learn best. Learning styles will be established to tailor lesson plans to meet the needs of each student.
  • Access to PowerSchool's Student Information System - Parents will be given access to their children's personal information through a password-protected computer-based system that allows them to monitor their progress. Parents can monitor test scores, homework and attendance on a daily basis.
  • Parent Involvement - We know that children enjoy greater success in school when the adults they admire most take an interest in their education. Our students' parents will be required to commit to volunteer hours each year for the school. These hours foster closer relationships and ensure a more secure learning environment.
  • Uniforms - A school uniform policy is enforced. School uniforms must be purchased exclusively from a Union Preparatory Academy at Indian Trail approved vendor only. School uniforms instill a sense of pride in the school as well as each child's individual appearance. Uniforms allow students to focus on their education instead of designer labels and fashion trends.
