This school has had a mixed history for years of both positives and negatives. Academic instruction is good. However, too many of the students have an attitude of superiority. The concept that Seventh-day Adventists have the full truth is taught from a young age, and those with other beliefs are seen as not yet understanding the truth. This can be a very challenging and even uncomfortable environment for students who have differing beliefs. The music program is one of the strongest features of this school. This school may be right for your child and family, but it's not for everyone.
Looks great on the outside, but the religion is taught from a narrow-minded viewpoint and if your child doesn't fit in exactly right, look out. What the staff perceived as "great" kids from "good" families used religion as an excuse to bully mine and there was no effort by the administration to uncover what was really going on. There are much better schools around - I'd pass on this one.
I have 2 children attending Ukiah Junior Academy. They are both reading way above their grade levels. The teachers are all accredited and excellent. They are both being taught and encouraged to make Christ a part of their daily lives. UJA is a blessing to us!
My grandaughter is attending her second year and loves teachers, classmates, teacher aids. She is supported working at her level very well by a loving team. I recommend UJA to anyone desiring a quality chrisitan-based program.
All three of my children have attended Ukiah Junior Academy. It is an excellent school with an excellent, kind staff. I highly recommend Ukiah Junior Academy!
I attended UJA many years ago. I have great memories of the 10 years I spent there. I have been involved in the school over the years and am impressed with the principal and teachers. This school has a great track record for children going on to higher education and professional occupations. Excellent education to be had at UJA.
Both of my kids attend UJA and I am extremely pleased with what they are getting out of it. Not only are they getting a first class education, performing well above grade level in every subject, they are learning morals and values that will serve them the rest of their lives. The teachers are amazing and the grounds beautiful. If you are looking for a great education for your kid, this is the place for you.
