Excellence in Education
Annually, Unionville College (UC) competes in a variety of music, arts, and science festivals, where our students have achieved great successes. Time and again, our students have illustrated the numerous benefits of our advanced curriculum through their achievements. Our choir and instrumental musicians have been consistent award-winners. Over the past few years, our students have made the school and parents proud, with multiple Gold and Platinum victories at the Music Alive York Region Festival and MusicFest Canada at the national level.
Our sports teams have achieved great heights and have often been recognized for their excellence. Our athletes have won multiple trophies in competition through the Small Schools Athletic Federation (SSAF), which provides boys and girls with opportunities to participate in a variety of activities at a higher level of skill than generally found in an intramural programme.
In one of our school’s strongest subjects, mathematics, our grade 4-8’s have consistently excelled at the Canadian National Mathematics League, with many top ranking grade-wide finishes as well as first place standings at individual levels.
Students have also returned as award-winners from the National Science Fair. Some have partnered with experts in different fields, including University of Toronto professors.
Each year UC invests in independent testing to ensure our programmes are best-in-class and that our students achieve top marks when compared to other schools. The Canadian Achievement Tests (CAT-4) evaluate how well students perform in comparison to other students across the district, region, and country. UC consistently ranks in the top 5% in all of Canada.
