High Academic Standards
Upland Christian Academy is committed to high academic standards. That commitment starts with quality instruction. We have an excellent record of hiring and retaining certified teachers who are highly qualified, many of them holding advanced degrees in their fields. We use proven, effective teaching methods, blending a traditional approach with modern technology and recent educational research. By keeping teacher-to-student ratios low, our teachers can give proper attention to individual student needs. Our teachers nurture and hold students accountable for performing at their highest potential.
Our school has gone through the rigorous evaluation process of accreditation, and we are fully accredited through Western Association of Schools and Colleges. We carefully evaluate and adopt curriculum that is effective and in harmony with Scriptural truths. One of our primary academic goals is to prepare students to enter the college of their first choice, and 98% of our students successfully continue their study in college. Beyond academics, we seek growth of the whole child: mental, spiritual, physical, and social. Our holistic approach, undergirded in the Christian faith, enables students to discover their life’s purpose and equip them to fulfill it with excellence.
We believe that the truest measure of educational excellence is in the lives of graduates. The UC Academy is continuing to build a strong heritage through the lives we impact. Our alumni demonstrate success in college, in careers, and in life. Their lives testify to the strong foundation laid at our school, and most have life-long relationships with the school and the friendships formed during their school years at UCA. We are grateful to have alumni on our faculty and alumni children attending our school!
