Terrible school, the worst hands down we have ever been too. The situation which was the final straw took place during a rainy day. I did not have an umbrella and pulled into the reserved parking spot for the director to pick up my 24 mo old daughter. The pastor pulled up as I was pulling out and proceeded to threaten me with expulsion if I ever did that again. I told her it was raining and my child's health was more important. As a pastor she could wait a few seconds to park her car. She threatened me again to which I replied "God doesn't have reserved parking spots, children come first.". When I got home she had left a message on my answering machine to tell me our daughter was no longer welcome. I filed a complaint with the BBB and was happy to leave that place.

I rate UCA as a great and unique Private Christian School with a Principal and Assistant Principal who exemplifies strength of character, loyalty and perseverance. The entire entity, management team and staff truly believes in God's Words; it is so evident (all anyone need do is look). On many visitations, I've heard the Principal's testimony on how she was directed by God to start the school and charge the meager fees she does which is really an example of selflessness (I have questioned how the school survives with the fees that are charged, but then I've come to realize it is the working power of God). I understand that the school was built entirely on funds saved and meticulous managed throughout many years because she believed that accepting government funds would restrict the freedom of prayer and other biblical liberties or privileges (Amazing!). As I have watched Urban Christian Academy grow, I think the enrollment office should prayerfully scrutinize enrollees to ensure there is a mutual understanding of what is being done for the whole wellbeing of a child's mind (Parent participation--Volunteering and definitely much Finances play a large role in quality education!)

The principal only cares about money!!! But some of the teachers, or at least the only one I had any interaction with, are great!

I would not recommend this school to any parent. Everyday week they come up with a new way of getting money from all the parents. Last year, all the parents paid a mandatory $70 for the playground to be fixed last summer and NOTHING has been done to it. My son attended there for almost two years and only went to the playground about 5 times. He is 3 years old for crying out load. The negative list is too long to write. The most notorious one is the demand for money placed on the parents on a regular basis.

AS A PARENT OF URBAN CHRISTIAN, GOD HELP US. EVERY WEEK THERE IS SOMETHING NEW. MONEY, MONEY! THE SCHOOL IS REQUESTING $7O.00 FOR A SCHOOL BARIZZARE AND EVERY PARENT IIS REQUIRED TO PAY THIS. I THINK THIS NOT FAIR. WE ALREADY PAY FOR ORU CHILD TO ATTEND THE SCHOOL. $70.00 PER CHILD IS ASKING TOO MUCH. I WOULD NOT SUGGEST THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. WE NEED HELP. SOMEONE FROM THE STATE NEED TO COME AND CHECK ON HOW THIS SCHOOL IS RUN. HELP, WE SEND OUR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL TO GET AN EDUCATION AND THEY PRACTICE SONGS TO SING AT CHURCH ALL DAY LONG. HELP,HELP 1

I would consider Urban Christian to be a good day care school from the new-born class to pre-k/K. You can't ask for a better school during those years. I woudn't suggest sending your child to the regular academic program because I don't feel the teachers are knowledgable enough to teach the content of regular academic classes. Computers theres are dinosaurs. You do have to participate in fundraisers, like the school wide bazaar, which is not worth the money that you are required to pay or your child will be kicked out. You also have to pay for other minor events throughout the school year that are used for fundraisers. The low day care rate is justified by all of the fundraisers that take place that help benefit the school. The teachers are great, and they really love the children. I would recommend with reservation.

Hi. I am a parent and is satisfied with the care in which my child is receiving. Could not have asked for a better environment for my one yr old son, being his first time at daycare. He's becoming more and more aware of his surroundings and is developing social skills and is even counting to ten. Great job! Keep up the good work Urban Christian.

I can only speak for the daycare thru pre-k portion of the school, my child started there when he was only 7 months old-his vocabulary and his motor skills exceeded the normal standard. The teachers in the daycare portion are awesome, they give your child love and homely care...each day I left my child to go to work I felt as though I was leaving him with a family member. The only reason I have removed my child from there is because it was time for pre-k and it was more advantageous to for my family to have our child in public school. Since it is a Christian school you are obligated to make only one church service a month...which should not be a problem if you belive in the Lord, making service should not be a problem. Overall I will say that UCA served my child well.

This school was an absolute horror to deal with. Between the fundraising, mandatory church services, strict dress code and horrible academics, I didnt know what to do. I wouldnt recommend this school to anyone. The daycare has both the toddlers and infants in the same room, thereby exposing newborns to differnt viruses than necessary. The 'pastor' cusses in the presence of the children. Its not a good environment for children. Bottom line, save your money and go to another school that will be worthwhile.

This school is fairly well academically up to the 1st grade; however, your sucess is determined on a personal level and not on an academic level. I have found that when it is time for a student to test out of a pace subject, it has taken as long as two months for the them to receive their test. As far as safety is concern-this issue is determine as to whom your relatives are. There is no consistency with the availabilty of the arts. As for sports there is nothing for the girls that would interest them at all. Parental involvement is good.

This is a wonderful school, my child is in the daycare section and he recieves much love and attention from his teachers, I look forward to keeping him there. I highly recommend this school for the new parent as well as seasoned parents, not to mention the price is more than acceptable.

Great school academically! For younger children but the older you get the more the school will advance your child on if they like you or not. I am one of the many parents whose child(ren) transcripts were changed for the worse when I decided to leave. But up th K or 1st great school to give a strong foundation for your child. Teachers work well with students.

Our daughter attended UCA from the age of 3 until she was 6 years old. The only reason we left UCA is because my spouse received military orders. He has recently received orders to return to Savannah and we are looking forward to returning to UCA as well. UCA is a place for the whole family.
