I couldn't be more pleased with the active encouragement the teachers give my daughter, and their communication with the parents is great! The class size is just right, and the rooms are large enough so that students can move around and have lot of work space. There is a lot of homework, which is one of my only negatives, and there is always weekend work. I wish they would not assign homework on the weekends to the lower grades. Other than that, we love UFCA! :)

This school maximizes the learning AND reflects Christ as it provides an accredited, Christ-centered, college prep education. Distinctives include: small classes, international student program, Buddy Class program, and strong academic/curriculum leadership.

The warmth and feeling of family is added bonus to the great education my daughter receives.

My children love UFCA. The teachers are very caring and provide individual attention. The values that are being taught are Christ-centered and are reflected in all areas of the academics as well.

Small class size and wonderful teachers. My children love this school. Great elective choices. Strong leadership.

I think it is a bit of a stretch to claim this school has 'strong academics.' If you want your child to get a strong college prep background, please consider another school.

This school is headed in the right direction. Stronger academics, staying focused on the Christian mission and vision, reaching out to the whole family.... it's a great place I highly recommend.

UFCA is headed in the right direction. It may not be as big or wealthy as some other schools, but has a much improved emphasis on rigorous College Preparatory academics while still keeping the strong commitment to Christian mission and vision.

This is a wonderful Christ-centered school with small class sizes. The educators truly care about the students and focus on strong academics as well as character and spiritual development.

A wonderfully rigorous combination of academics, athletics and fine arts. I small school with big school opportunities. The new headmaster is amazing, a true visionary and man of God.The teachers are clearly there because they are passionate about their subject/s, the kids and their faith. We have several children there and they will remain through 12th.

United Faith is a wonderful school with a Christ-centered cirriculum. It is a place where students are challenged, yet loved. The teachers are more than qualified, which allows the students to learn so much. They offer a nurturing environment that feels more like a family than a school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
