UCA offers elementary and upper-elementary grades. Elementary is considered to be Pre-K3 through 3rd grade. Upper-elementary is 4th through 6th grades. In the UCA Pre-K and Kindergarten programs, classes are divided by age and appropriate developmental stages. A child is required to be 3 years old by September 30th and potty trained for enrollment into the Pre K program. Currently, we have 2 Pre-K classes and 1 Kindergarten class. Each class has a limited size, a certified teacher, and some classes have a teacher’s assistant. The Pre-K and Kindergarten curriculum includes classroom instruction, music (singing), Bible stories, structured physical education classes, and age-appropriate playgrounds. As well as, weekly chapel assemblies, and frequent educational class field trips.
In upper elementary school, we provide a challenging curriculum designed to prepare students for our Middle School program. We offer a traditional scope and sequence focus, and use a variety of curriculum, including Accelerated Reading, and Abeka materials. In addition to classroom instruction, students have Bible classes, weekly chapel assemblies, and frequent educational class field trips. We, also, have music programs, 4-H and Pee Wee Sports available.
