Junction City High School is proud to announce that we are now a Special Olympics Unified Champion School.

Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools® build on Special Olympics’ values, principles, practices, experiences and impacts to shape a generation that welcomes everyone.

The Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools program is aimed at promoting social inclusion through intentionally planned and implemented activities affecting systems-wide change. With sports as the foundation, the three component model offers a unique combination of effective activities that equip young people with tools and training to create sports, classroom and school climates of acceptance. Students with disabilities feel welcome and are routinely included in, and feel a part of, all activities, opportunities and functions.

This is accomplished by implementing inclusive sports, inclusive youth leadership opportunities, and whole school engagement. The program is designed to be woven into the fabric of the school, enhancing current efforts and providing rich opportunities that lead to meaningful change in creating a socially inclusive school that supports and engages all learners. 

Together we are creating a Unified Generation that Chooses to Include.
