    United Faith has been a blessing to our family as our children have attended there for many years. The small size classes have helped us to feel like more of a family than a bricks and mortar school setting but yet the teachers and staff make sure to prepare our children for the future; academically socially & spiritually. Yes the last year has been a transition but just like any school that has a strong foundation like UFCA; the new changes and emphasis on things above will lead us to exciting new opportunities for our children families & community!

    My son started 6th grade at United Faith about a year ago and we could not be more pleased with his academic and spiritual progress. The school has a great family atmosphere as I expected a small school would have and the teachers are always friendly and willing to help. The school is also very diverse and coming from an ethnic background that means a lot to our family. Yes the building is older and does not have all the bells and whistles as other schools do but as my mother always taught me don't judge a book by it's cover .

    I recommend United Faith Christian Academy. The school has a great academic program. The age range from preschooler through high school. It has a strong Christian value.It teaches it's student how to be future Leaders for tomorrow. The teachers and facilities are great with the students. They put the students needs first.

    This school is very small a small school can mean a lot of things for different people. There is about 300 students k-12. The school BUILDING is old it is about 20 years old I believed it opened in 86'. Because it is so old the building is dirty and "unstable" a lot of the desks flooring and books are about the same age as the school itself. The staff in very unprofessional and over the years have had many problems with the staff. The current head master has only been there a year because they also have trouble finding a permanent head master. One major thing people should know is that they do ask certain (wealthy) people for money. The teachers are ok... I will say this they complain about how much they get paid. A lot of teachers come and go. The lunch is great taste wise but health wise is terrible someone's daily school lunch would be pizza and french fries with a diet coke and maybe a candy bar or on some days ice cream costing $5. If you ask every student if they like United Faith Christian Academy 80% of the student would say no. The 10% that say yes like it because the other school they went to they were bullied. And they other 10% are the teacher's children.

    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! )

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
