  • Is there a “typical” University Christian student?

    No, each student is uniquely created by God and has his or her own talents and gifts that he or she brings to our community. We do seek students who work hard, play hard, and are upstanding members of their school communities.
  • Do you consider more than just quantitative (standardized test results, GPA) factors?

    We like to look at each applicant as a whole and get to know him/her as a person to see what kind of thinker, student, and person he/she is. We do require all students entering grades 1st through 12th to be tested. As part of the admissions process, we require your current principal, and a teacher to complete recommendations along with providing a copy of the discipline report for the year. We also have an admission interview with the applicant as well as his/her parents.
