​​​Be a Part of UThon 2017 - March 25!

UThon is modeled after Penn State's famous THON. It is a six-hour dance and dodgeball event to raise money for Four Diamonds, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching cures for pediatric cancer and alleviating the financial burdens that families of children with cancer face. Last year, our event raised over $14,000, and we are hoping to enjoy similar success this year!
Elementary and middle-schoolers and their parents are invited to take part in this special event. We would love for the younger students to come and cheer for our dodgeball teams, play games, and make cards for children with cancer.
UThon will take place on Saturday, March 25th, and elementary and middle school students and their parents are welcome from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., at UHS. $5 per person is the cost for registration (all proceeds go directly to Four Diamonds). Donations are also appreciated.

For over 50 years, the Unionville Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund has provided scholarship aid to outstanding graduating seniors at Unionville High School. 

The Community Scholarship is a grant of a stated amount of money collected annually from the school community by open solicitation. Its purpose is to award the worthy student who wishes to continue his/her education following graduation from Unionville High School. The grant is for the first year of post-secondary work only and will be applied toward college costs (i.e., tuition, room and board). As many grants will be made annually as the treasury of the Community Scholarship can support.  Please consider contributing to the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund. 


You can have your student drop off the donation to the High School Office in an envelope marked UCF Community Scholarship. We accept cash, change or if you would like, a check made payable to UCF Community Scholarship Fund.
