Welcome to the Union City Cyber Academy!

Greetings, Families!

This year, UCASD is excited to partner with the Warren County School District to provide instruction through the Union City Cyber Academy. This program will ensure that each and every family who elects online programming experiences quality instruction coupled with intensive academic support. These supports and resources will be provided jointly through Warren County School District's educators and our very own Union City Area School District guidance counselors, administrators, and staff. We have been working closely with the WCSD to ensure that each aspect of this program will meet the needs of all of our learners. Please review the information below, and do not hesitate to reach out to me directly should you have questions about our Union City Cyber Academy. Continue to check this page for frequent updates and resources.

Thank you.

The Union City Cyber Academy: A Partnership Between School Districts

Students who enroll in this program will still be Union City Area School District students. These students will work closely with their own guidance counselors here at UCASD to select from a host of courses provided that are tailored to their academic and career planning needs. The Warren County School District cyber instructors will update attendance, grades, and academic progress in the online portal, and our guidance and administrative teams will monitor this data closely and communicate with instructors to ensure students are properly supported as they work through this program. Our school district will provide the 1:1 technology for each student who enrolls in the Union City Cyber Academy. Students who receive specialized instruction through our special education program will still work closely with our Student Support Services department, including our Director of Special Education and our School Psychologist, to ensure those needs are being met.

All families who had notified their individual building offices of their intent to enroll in the program received invitations to our Union City Cyber Academy Orientation on Wednesday, August 25, 2021; this event was held in-person and also livestreamed for those who were unable to attend. Students received a brief orientation, completed necessary paperwork, and were given their devices for online instruction. Families who were unable to attend this event -or- who enroll/enrolled after August 25 will need to arrange device and material pickup with each individual building office.
