Upper Dauphin Area School District


Welcome to the Upper Dauphin Area School District, home of the Trojans! At UDA, we strive to provide a challenging environment where students can enjoy learning. All members of the whole school community recognize the value of hard work and take pride in putting forth their best efforts each and every day. These values are reflective of those held by the people of our rural, agricultural community. The mission of our district is to empower our students to be lifelong learners in order to reach their greatest potential. As part of this quest we offer our students a wide range of educational and extracurricular activities designed to prepare them for future employment, further education, and active citizenship. UDA’s dedicated and enthusiastic staff, in partnership with parents and community and business groups, is committed to the belief that “students are our purpose.” Enjoy your tour through our web site. We hope that the information found on its pages will be helpful to you in learning more about our schools. We also hope it conveys our commitment to educational excellence as well as our sense of Trojan pride!
