The Game

Everyone's a winner when the generosity of our parents positively impacts the wellbeing of our teachers. Teachers who feel supported and are given the resources to fully develop and share their unique gifts, skills, and talents, are an inspiration in the classroom. Students respond to teachers who are principled and passionate about what they do, and they are successful because of it. At UCHS, our teachers are committed to every student as they develop life skills, including confidence, preparedness, integrity, compassion, and discipline. They are a guiding force during a crucial stage of personal growth, and their influence is priceless.

“There is a point in every contest when sitting on the sidelines is not an option.”

The Outcome

The Outcome is Priceless.
