About

Welcome from our Head of School

Welcome to University Christian School

I am proud to introduce you to a campus rich in history and forging ahead to impact the next generation for Christ. At UCS we are committed to developing the spiritual, academic and social components of your student. As you navigate our website, you will discover the distinctiveness of our school and the unique offerings we offer our lower, middle and high school students.

University Christian is more than a school. We are family! UCS is a community where the lives of students and families are transformed. Since 1965, UCS has challenged thousands of students academically while building a strong foundation spiritually. I am fortunate to witness our mission in action on a daily basis as we seek to “prepare fully devoted followers of Christ who love and lead with excellence in our world.”

University Christian assists all students in reaching their full potential. We utilize a rigorous academic program that integrates God’s word into every aspect of teaching and learning. Technology significantly enhances our program at all levels, as students utilize iPads as a tool for learning in newly designed state of the art classrooms. Students utilize their knowledge and gifts in a variety of ways, including the intentional service of others both locally and globally.

A student’s learning potential at University Christian is limitless. Education and growth opportunities are not limited to the classroom. Our athletics department, fine arts community and co-curricular clubs are equipped with qualified coaches and instructors who dedicate themselves to mentoring students. Their key focus is the pursuit of excellence, while developing Christian character and leadership.

A visit to our campus will allow you to see the definite difference that provides us with a rich tradition. I would like to thank you for prayerfully considering UCS as the choice for your children and family. I invite you to contact our Admissions Office today to schedule your campus tour.

Thank you for visiting our website. We would be honored to partner with you and your family in the education of your children.

Yours in UC Pride,
Heath Nivens
Head of School
