Words will never be able to describe the gift that UCS has given my son. The teachers, coaches and administration not only care for their students success academically but for the success of their social wellbeing. We will leave with a more confident, caring, healthy, and intelligent young man all because UCS refused to never give up on him! What a testament to their mission of truth, tradition and transformation. Submitted by a parent
This is the best school I have ever gone to in my entire life. I'm new here, but the first day I walked in, I could feel the love. They welcomed me with open arms and taught me all about Christ. I'm a better person because of UC and its teachers.
My school maked me feel welcome when I came here last year ,I also love working with iPads .
My school is great at making you feel welcome, they have an amazing 8th grade class!!!!!!
My school is awesome because we have a great student council and the guidance counselor rocks. The iPads are a really cool advancement to our school. They are a great learning source. Their teachers are friendly and care about each students need.
I'm a seventh grader and I have been here since first grade. I've learned a lot about Christ and I chose to follow Him here.
This school is a great place for both school and sport lovers. It also has great staff and teachers, eager to help the student. We also use technology to our advantage as we use iPads to read, write, and just have fun. The school offers from pre-k to 12th grade with a variety of events and exciting fundraisers. University also offers a variety of sports such as football, soccer, cheer, baseball, and more along with excellent coaches.
I just wanted to add to this page that University Christian has proven to be the leading school in technology and the iPads have made a huge difference in the way learning is done! We are thankful for this and excited to see the advancement this will have on the kids education! Way to go UC!!
I second the dismal rating because of the (non) public response this allegedly CHRISTIAN school had to one of its students publishing political rants about his fellow citizens. Ignorant rants have repercussions in real life - but not at this "Christian" school? Ask why.
I am currently a student at University Christian School, and have attended for four years. University Christian provides a solid foundation and saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and a family setting. If you, as a student, are willing to develope a strong relationship with faculty, instead of dodging the rules, your experience at UC would be so much better. Unless you've experienced University Christians School for your self I ask that you not speak out negatively upon our school. There's been much succes within and will continue to be, as long as we're up and running.
I've been going to this school since k-5 and I love it. I could never think of going to another school and having the same experiences I do there as I have here. The love and compassion shown by the administration and faculty makes it the best school ever!
Hello I am a student at university christian school i am a 9th grader and ive been going to university christian school since kindergarten and ive loved everyday of it. i know everyone that goes here and i love all of the teachers. espcially now that im a high schooler and were all using the ipads its alot different but i like it everything is becoming electronic and its fun i definitely reccomend this school to anyone who wants their child to get a good christian education
I've been a student at University Christian for four years and, I must say, I love it! As soon as I started at UC, I felt like I belonged. The staff here is always willing to serve, and us students have picked that up along the way as well. I am amazed at the level of concern that University Christian has put in my understanding of the bible and my faith. I love my school!
I have been at UC for 3 years now and I love it! I grew up in a public school system and moved here my sophomore year and experienced more growth and community than I have in my entire life. The students are friendly and genuine, the teachers are loving and caring, and the faculty and other staff reflect the love of Christ in every aspect of their life. Not only are the academics excellent here, but also University Christian truly is showing kids the love of Christ through worship, academics, sports, and all other school activities. UC is also very mission oriented, having multiple service opportunities and mission opportunities theoughout the year. This school is worth your time and money and will show you what a true Christian education is all about.
I have been at University Christian School for four years. I have loved every moment of my time here. The staff is so caring and passionate about not only your school work, but your spiritual life as well. That is something that makes this school so special.
I have been at University Christian a total of nine years. I absolutely love the family atmosphere. I love the fact that in every class there is a Biblical lesson that is being taught. Our teachers really care about you, and they show it. The teachers are very understanding and are willing to work with you. The number one goal at University Christian is that every student will come to have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. You can sense that. We have chapel every Thursday. Chapel is amazing. We have a worship team and a speaker that brings a well delivered worship service. Many times you will see students on their knees, worshipping and surrendering to God. During these chapels you can definitely sense the Holy Spirit working. This is why I love this school so much, because the Christ-centered environment you are around with great mentors and spiritually sensitive students.
I am a senior at UC and I was a new student last year. One of the truely remarkable things about UC that distinguishes it from any other private school I've been to is the family environment among the students and staff. From my very first day everyone made me feel as though I already belonged in the UC family. The techers are excellent and it's obvious that they care about the students, not just academically, but also personally and spiritually.The administration is also very helpful and supprtive in getting UC students to their next levels of education. I am currently applyingfor the US Air Force Academy, and because UC is much smaller than a regular public school, the administration has been readily available to help me with the numerous forms and documents. If parents want their kids to make great friends and receive a solid Christian education, I would definately encourage them to send their kids to UC!
It is funny that a parent would write that UC students primarily go to FSCJ, Not that I am knocking this college, but that is an UNTRUE statement. I recently inquired about the percentages and was given a completely different answer than that. Knowing many of the students that graduated in the class of 2012, I found that at least half of them were going to a state university such as UNF (primarily), UF, UCF, and FSU. There were a few of them continuing their education at FSCJ to obtain their AA, but what I find most incredible that everyone that I spoke with did not feel that not continuing their education was an option! They felt prepared and ready for the next chapter in their life and were excited. I think if we want to compare apples to apples here, UC has VERY high percentages of continued education over public schools. Their test scores were published and they are above the national average... I wish people would gain facts instead of gossip before posting things. I went to the source and asked a lot of questions and was given accurate information from the CollegeBoard.
As I read the reviews, I see that most have gone through the same things I did. My oldest began UC in k5 and graduated from UC. During that time, I loved this school. BUT, he was my perfect student. When it came to my other children, I found a complete lack of compassion for the students by the administration, a dictatorial and uncaring superintendent and seniors barely attaining combined SAT scores of 1000. In fact, the majority of graduates were not attending college at all or were only accepted by fscj. I could see no difference between uc and a lower tier public school, so my kids no longer attend there. I still have a special place in my heart for the school and many of its faculty, staff and students, but my kids deserve much better and are getting it elsewhere. As one parent said, uc is not college prep or Christian, so what's the point?
This school is not the place to send your children if you want them to get a good Christian education. Even though this school says it is a Christian school it does not support its claim. Horrible education and the faculty are not doing there job right. I go here and I am not satisfied with my education.
