UWC Mission

The Collegiate tradition is one of academic excellence and accessibility, in an environment of critical thinking and community spirit. UWC is committed to offering high school programs that provide an ideal transition to post-secondary education. The Collegiate philosophy emphasizes the need for students to become mature individuals within an atmosphere of self-generated discipline, where students can discover freedom and its complement — responsibility.

To foster our mission, UWC provides an environment of academic freedom, mutual trust and support, and ongoing professional development for faculty. In a world of continuing change, Collegiate faculty strive to engage students in a rigorous curriculum that will prepare them for, and encourage them to pursue, a lifelong love of learning.

We seek to enable our students to reflect upon moral and ethical issues, and to develop their concern for the welfare of others. The faculty is committed to providing our students with structure which enhances their intellectual, social, and personal development — in short, the education of the total person.
