Message from the 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 each student. As you begin to navigate your way through our website, you will discover the distinctiveness of our Lower and Upper Schools. The various aspects that set UCS apart as a private, Christian school will quickly be evident.


University Christian is more than a school. We are a community, a family, a special place that transforms lives. Since 1965, UCS has challenged thousands of students academically while building a strong spiritual foundation. I am fortunate to witness our mission in action on a daily basis on campus as we seek  “to lead every student to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ while providing the highest quality Christian education.” 


University Christian assists all students in reaching their full potential. We utilize a rigorous academic program that includes an excellent, Biblically integrated college preparatory curriculum. 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. It is our heart that each student understands what it means to serve others. Therefore, we challenge them to serve through our intentional focus on community service, affording students opportunities to impact their local community. 


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


A visit to our campus will allow you to experience the unique school that University Christian has been for over fifty years. 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 or for information on our upcoming Open House. 


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
