Unadilla Valley Central School District serves a largely rural area with a pre-kindergarten through grade 12 campus that opened its doors in 2002.

The district was establishes as the result of a merger between the from New Berlin and South New Berlin Central School Districts in 1996. UV is a component district of the Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego BOCES region.
Our school is a collaborative community of educators, learners and support team members whose focus is on improving what we do each and every day.

A wide range of programming, resources and extra-curricular activities allows UV to focus on educating the whole child, in traditional and non-traditional classroom settings, group activities and individually.

We also believe in building connections between our school and the communities we serve. We do this through outreach to area businesses and organizations, as well as a range of community groups. Our award-winning programming and unique student services position our district as a foundational community asset in the heartland of New York state, while having a little fun along the way.
