Monroe Schools

Union Academy

Schools in Monroe 

Public schools in Monroe are part of the  Union County Public Schools, a county-wide school system that serves all of Union County, one of the fastest growing school systems in North Carolina.  The schools system anticipates building 17 new schools throughout Union County between 2006 and 2010.


 Monroe students are assigned to a number of schools.  Grades K through 5 attend elementary schools, grades 6 through 8 attend the middle schools and high schools include grades 9 through 12.


Union Academy Charter School is another option open to all Union County students.  This charter school emphasizes Character, Challenge, and Community in its strong academic curriculum.  Union Academy has two campuses. The lower school houses grades kindergarten through fourth.  The middle school, grades 5 through 8, and the high school are located on a campus five miles from the lower school.  Assignment to Union Academy is through a lottery.


The school calendar begins in late August and ends by mid-June.  Pupil assignment to schools does not correspond to town or other political boundaries and can change if new schools are built to relieve overcrowding at individual schools.   Bus service is provided for students except those who live very close to an individual school.
