Union Elementary School
"Service, Faith and Character"
WELCOME TO PCU- UNION ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
The PCU-Union Elementary School is one of the very important educational units of the Basic Education Department of Philippine Christian University. It provides foundational learning avenues to pupils from grades one to six relevant to the educational trends and competencies of 21st Century education and embedded into its curriculum the very core Christian values it upholds which are Faith, Character and Service.
Its humble beginning started shortly after the Second World War when parents with overaged children clamored for an elementary school. Thus, in June of 1946, Union Elementary School was established as the Union Theological Seminary opened its doors to elementary school children. In 1947, it became an integral part of the Philippine Christian College when the latter was incorporated, and was then renamed the Philippine Christian College – Union Elementary School (PChC-UES). It was also in the same year when PChC-UES was granted a 50-year government recognition. It continuously grew in quantity and quality that in 1960-61, a new building was built to accommodate a significant number of enrollees. When Philippine Christian College became a university in 1975, the PChC-UES was re-named as the PCU-Union Elementary School. On April 26, 1991, PCU-UES was awarded Level III with a Five-Year Accreditation Status by the ACSCU-ACI and has been sustained up to the present. On July 15, 2014, PCU-UES was granted an ISO Certification, an indication that the school has provided quality service to our learners or clientele.
To keep abreast with the educational challenges of the times, PCU-UES adhered to the K-12 curriculum as mandated by RA 10533 or the Basic Education Act of 2013. Its educational programs and learning competencies are aligned with the protocols and standards mandated by the Department of Education (DepEd). It subscribed to GENYO e-Learning Management Program from DIWA Learning Systems, Inc. which provides interactive, collaborative tools and multimedia resources in the learning process of the learners. Furthermore, the PCU Bluebook Junior serves as the Learning Management System to help address the growing demand in terms of technological advancements along with using innovative strategies to acquire lifelong learning, competence and develop 21st Century Skills for global competitiveness. It also provides every learner an easy online access to home-based plans (syllabi), class discussions and presentations, submission of class requirements, and many more.
Now, PCU-UES implements Blended Learning Modality in order for the learners to continue to integrate the ever-developing technology as applied in many dimensions of learning processes. In consonance with its quest to produce PCU-UES learners that are innovative, globally competitive, and wholistically competent, its curriculum is enhanced through adding Advanced Science and Math subjects in all levels to enable learners to explore inquiry-based learning and induce critical thinking and sound decision making.
Along with curricular offerings, extra – curricular activities are also available by which the learners can choose for themselves. With this, they would have the opportunity to exercise and develop their talents, hone interests and practice them with confidence and humility towards building up one’s faith and character for service to others. This enables the development of the whole person, maximizes their potentials, equipping them with life-long skills, and making ready to face the realities of the world!

We ensure that all learners, teachers, staff and administrators understand this through various programs spread all throughout the school year.
The core value of CHARACTER, on the other hand, is experienced and instilled in the hearts and minds of our learners through their day to day experience with their teachers as well as the staff and administrators. Experiencing love, care, respect, honesty, and concern for each other and the larger world help the learners go through a pleasant and friendly environment that promote exciting day-to-day engagements in and outside the classrooms, all contributing to the shaping of the learners’ character and competence.
All these produce a heart of SERVICE in each of the learner that passes through the halls of PCU-Union Elementary School. Learners exhibit this by engaging in outreach programs, in singing together as Little Singers (school choir), and joyfully honing their skills in music, arts, sports and many others.
