  • As a parent of 2 students at URCA, I feel blessed to have my children there. The teachers love them and the biblical integration shows in all subjects. My children love their school and I appreciate the principal's open door policy.

  • Having moved here from out of state I looked for a school that would focus on the child in a spiritual, emotional, and academic manner. URCA was excellent in its presentation, classroom teacher, Ms. Renea was outstanding as an instructor and while I have been here since June finding a school that met these needs proved a challenge. I am so grateful for URCA, its atmosphere is warm and inviting and I can tell that the children really feel loved.
