A big thank you!!

We can't thank you enough for all of the book donations. We have a great collection going. We should have the books shelved and the library ready to go before the Winter Break. Please keep donating books if you have them.

We have a special request from our Functional Skills Teacher, Ms. Bumley. She is looking for books to develop into Adaptive Books for her students. Below is a link to a document with different book titles that she uses for her adaptive books. She would greatly appreciate any of these books donated to her library.


Eagles, We need your help!

We have a family at UCA who needs our love & support.

A student at our High school lost their mother yesterday due to Covid. The oldest sister is taking care of all 5 other siblings as well. We will be collecting gift cards to buy Christmas presents for this family. They also have siblings in our other schools here at UCA. Please drop off all gift cards to me in the front office of the high school.

Thank you all and we appreciate the strength UCA Families carry as a whole.

Would you like to join boy scouts?

Parking Spots

Make sure that you hang your parking tag in your car where it is visible.

If someone is parked in your assigned spot when you arrive, please make a note of their license plate number and report it to the front office so that we can identify the student who is incorrectly parked. DO NOT park in someone else's spot if yours is taken! Please just park in an empty spot in the front of the school (NOT in the senior lot) until we can rectify the issue.

If you have any questions, please call the high school 336-610-0813. Thank you!

UCA High School Library

Parents and Students

We are developing a library collection here at UCA where our students can check out books. We have a collection of books right now and would love to expand that collection and are looking for Book Donations. If you have any books to donate, please send them with your child. Your child can leave them with Ms. Hill in the front office, in the box outside Mrs. Knapps Office (Room 109 in the front office), or give them to our Library Assistants - Nidhi Khiantani and Sarah Winkler.

Thank you all for helping support a library for UCA.

Seniors Class of 2022: Updated Immunization Record Required

A reminder that Seniors upon entering their senior year are required by law to obtain the #2 dose of the meningococcal vaccine.

The front office should have your updated immunization records before school starts. You may fax to 336-610-0815.

Contact your physician, local health department or any pharmacy that administers immunizations.

Please make sure you get a copy of the updated record as it is required to be on file with the school.

Bus Transportation

If your child needs bus transportation please contact Clayton Miller.

Bus stop information should be emailed to you directly from the Bus Transportation Department.

We appreciate your support and patience with our transportation department this first week of school. We wanted you to know that we are working to add another route to serve our students who are currently on the transportation waitlist, especially in the Montgomery County area.

Also, we have color coded our bus information on the UCA website to assist with viewing our stop times. https://www.uwharriecharter.org/Transportation.aspx

If you have more than one student riding a bus, the multi-student discount still applies this year.

Once you have paid the transportation fee for two students, there is no additional charge for a third child.If you see an additional fee on your K12 account after you have paid for two riders, please email clayton_miller@uwharriecharter.org to have the fee removed.
