About Us

The Mount Union Area School District is a rural District spanning 256 sq miles.   The organizational structure of the Mount Union Area School District is as follows: 3 Elementary Schools (Grades K-6) Mount Union - Kistler Elementary School, Shirley Township Elementary School, and Mapleton Union Elementary School.  In addition, the district consists of one Junior High School comprised of Grades 7-8 and one Senior High School for Grades 9-12.  The Junior and Senior High school buildings were renovated in 2010.  

The Mount Union Area School District continues to host a Pre K program in partnership with Huntingdon County Child and Adult Development Corporation. This initiative continues to be supported through Pre K Counts, Pa Pre K Counts and Head Start Supplemental in addition to Title 1 funding for the 2010-11 school year. 

The planned courses of instruction and assessment programs are matched to the state requirements under Chapter 4 for all of our programs. The state and district benchmarks and/or local assessments have been developed or adopted to address the Pennsylvania Academic Standards. Monitoring of the program and data analysis of the results will be completed at each grade level according to descriptions outlined in our assessment action plan.

There are a multitude of programs in place within the district. Some of those programs are LETRS, Guided Reading, LLI, RtII, Olweus, Verbal Behavior Project, READ 180, System 44, Corrective Reading…The Reading Mastery Series, ALEX, and Benchmark Reading. In addition, the district participates with after school tutoring through the 21st Century Grant. An advisor/advisee program is also in place to assist students with meeting graduation requirements. All students, both special and regular education have equal access to these 13 programs. The District has utilized data from DIBELS, System 44, LLI, and READ 180 to assist in this area. The teachers can monitor progress in a variety of areas and graph the progress. If students are not improving, interventions are implemented to help the student gain the skills. We are “Proactive for Students!”
