SMALLER CLASS SIZE
About 16 scholars per class means your child will have more specialized instruction and attention compared to a class with 22-30 students, which is the typical class size for charter/public schools.
SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION
The traditional whole group teaching method doesn't guarantee students are being taught on their level. We spend over 50% of instructional time allowing students to learn in hands-on activities in independent and teacher-led groups.
HIGHER READING PROFICIENCY SCORES
At the end of kindergarten last year, the average reading level of students in Miss Moore's class was half way through the first grade year. Additionally, many students who entered kindergarten far behind scored 80% or above on their final reading skills test.
50+ free field trip opportunities
At UCA, we think kids should love learning. We want our students to experience the world around them instead of just reading books about it. We are committed to giving students hands-on opportunities to be curious.
LONGER SCHOOL YEAR
In order to support students and allow them to reach their potential, we are committed to giving students more time in the classroom. Students at UCA are in school for 39 weeks, compared to 35 weeks in the public school district.
CHRIST-CENTERED BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT
We see every one of our students as an image-bearer of their Creator. We seek to nurture every student at UCA while setting clear boundaries to help them be successful. We are passionate about noticing the positive in every child and vigilant to hold kids accountable to being their best.
UCA is a tuition-free, private Christian school serving scholars and families living in the Kansas City Public School boundary lines. We are currently a K-3 school and will be adding a 4th grade class in fall 2018.
UCA has a maximum class size of 16 scholars, so there is often a waiting list. Priority is given to scholars who are already connected with a member of the UCA family or who live in close proximity to the school (43rd and Jackson).
Parents are required to attend 3 mandatory events throughout the course of the year for their scholar to remain enrolled at UCA.
