Empowering a diverse community, united by Christ, to achieve excellence in education for the flourishing of all creation.




Our students graduate with increased confidence and clarity about their future. The UCA learning process encourages all students to recognize and develop their unique gifts and to boldly use them for the good of others.


We seek to admit and serve students and families from all social, economic, ecumenical and cultural backgrounds. A diverse learning community deeply committed to one another stands as a powerful testament to the Gospel and prepares students to seek restoration in a world marred by conflict and injustice.


The school we create together enthusiastically affirms the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it is by this hope alone that we seek unity in diversity. The love of Christ compels us to work together for the restoration of this world.


As a result of our obedience to Christ, we promote relational, rigorous, and relevant scholarship that integrates faith and learning. Students and teachers must invest all the knowledge, skills, and gifts they have been given so as to glorify God. The pursuit of excellence is worship.


The purpose of education is ultimately wrapped up in God’s mandate for human beings to create, improve, and seek the fulfillment of His creation. We do this by learning, working, building culture, and having faith that God will finish His good work.


Authentic Work

All students are capable of beautiful, complex, well-crafted work. Learning at UCA goes beyond tests and quizzes to encompass fieldwork, community projects, and other meaningful pursuits.


Heart, Mind & Hands

UCA takes a holistic approach to education, ensuring curriculum that addresses the loving, thinking, and doing nature of our students. 



We believe that in order for students to have hope and a future, their education ought to help them achieve confidence and clarity about their gifts and potential vocation. It is essential for our school to help students identify strengths and passions, and personalize the learning process. 


Service Leadership

Students must be given the opportunity to hone their gifts and use them for the good of others. They will have meaningful opportunities to do this while in high school, connecting their faith and learning. We see service as a natural result of strong education.


Community Integration

We integrate learning and doing within our community. When learning is used to build up the people and institutions in our midst, real flourishing can happen.



Students and teachers are co-designers of curriculum. This means that student input is not just helpful for a robust curriculum; it is absolutely necessary. Together, we can emphasize high performing teams over individual superstars.
