I was a student at Upland Christian from Kindergarten through 12th grade, and I can truly say that God has used this school to help shape me and mold me into the person I am today. The classes challenged me academically and really prepared me to succeed in college. The teachers were instrumental in teaching me that there is so much more to education than just sitting through lectures in a classroom... They showed me that, in the "real world," wisdom and discernment are just as important as knowledge. In addition to the high standards in academics, Upland Christian offered so many extracurricular opportunities! I was involved in activities such as: choir, a vocal jazz ensemble, the worship team and chapel planning, missions trips, high school student orientation activities (Alpha program), varsity volleyball, drama and musical theater productions, honors and AP classes, etc. My teachers were always gracious and accommodating to my busy schedule! They taught me so much about responsibility and time management throughout the process. The teachers and staff truly care for their students so much, which is one of the most amazing and distinguishing elements of this school! They invested so deeply into my life... I wouldn't trade my experience at Upland Christian for the world!!!
