It is the philosophy of Union Hill School to foster and develop the whole child. In an effort to successful do so, we offer a wide variety of extra curricular activities for our students. We encourage our students to participate in some form of activity outside of their academic schedule. We believe in helping students create a school climate of “Bearcat spirit and pride” through these fine programs.

As part of the philosophy of Union Hill School to foster and develop the whole child, we are proud to support the wide variety of Bearcat Athletic teams: Girls and Boys Basketball, Cross Country, Flag Football, Track, Boys/Girls Junior High Volleyball, and Wrestling.
Our school athletic program promotes the development of social interaction skills, motor skills, and teamwork while providing the children with an opportunity for recreational experiences. Sports help students to develop an active and healthy lifestyle and a desire to be a part of the “Bearcat Athletic” spirit. With the high behavior and academic expectations that we have for our athletes, it also promotes wise choices and time management.
