The mission of University Christian School is to lead every student to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ while providing the highest quality Christian education in an environment of genuine love and concern for each student and parent.
The purpose of UCS is to reach, teach, and to serve.
Through these three purposes we believe we will be drawn together in fellowship and worship.

We have had two children graduate from UCS and one still attending. We are so thankful for the Godly teachers, mentors and friends that our children have been blessed with at their school.
