Under Construction

Thank you for visiting the UFCA website!  It is currently under construction.  We found that it needed a little updating and spiffing up this year.  You will be seeing some new things from time to time.

You will notice that there is a new tab at the top of the page called Resources.  Under it you will find links to important information like the Lands’ End order form and the Handbook.

You will also notice hyperlinks on many pages to help you navigate more smoothly through our website.

Thanks for visiting and have a look around!

Spring Showcase 2015

Thursday, April 30th and Friday, May 1st marked two great evenings to celebrate the fine arts at United Faith Christian Academy.  UFCA is a school with a vibrant fine arts program.  In the fall we have our annual Festival of the Fine Arts (FOFA) which highlights our HS Programs and each spring we have our Spring Showcase which primarily highlights our Middle School.  This year’s Spring Showcase featured the MS Band under the direction of Mrs. Bailey, the MS Theatre Production under the direction of Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Stoiano, the MS Sign Language and HS Praise Team both under the direction of Mrs. Vought.  In addition, the visual arts under the leadership of Mrs. Hoag and photography under Mr. Meyer’s leadership were also highlighted. The theatre production this year was Aesop’s Foibles.  The students did a great job and the show was a huge hit with sellout crowds both nights.

Senior Missions Trip – A NEW UFCA Tradition

  • For many years, our 12th grade class has taken a cruise for their senior trip. It had almost become an annual tradition. With this year’s graduating class; however, we wanted to shift the focus to a missions/service opportunity. The place and project proved to be an easy choice: our sister school in the Dominican Republic, Fountain of Life.
  • Fourteen of our seniors landed in Santo Domingo on Wednesday, April 8th. They spent the next four days in the village of Juan Tomas.  They attended a prayer service at the church the first night and distributed shoes to the students of the school the next day (courtesy of Samaritan’s Feet and the funds our own UFCA students raised!). The following day found them hosting chapels and then a field day for grades K-8. Each night they slept in the school’s bunk houses under mosquito netting and the days were hot and muggy.  Not one of the seniors hesitated to serve with an open heart. We are so very proud of them.
  • The last few days were spent at a beautiful resort in Punta Cana. The students enjoyed beach, pool time, snorkeling, bowling and much more. The devotional theme throughout the week was “Life Lessons”.  It was a wonderful time of bonding and memories were made that will not soon be forgotten. Senior Missions — a NEW UFCA tradition!
