About UFCA

Fun Facts

Mission: United Faith Christian Academy is committed to impact the world for Christ by developing and educating hearts, souls, minds, and bodies through the passionate teaching of a Christ-centered curriculum in a Christ-centered environment.

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  2. We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts.
  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us and His return to earth in power and glory.
  4. We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of the new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life.
  5. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. That alienation can be removed only by accepting through faith alone God’s gift of salvation, which was made possible by Christ’s death.

Code of Conduct

  1. Act with Integrity: Do the right thing even when no one is looking.  (Matthew 5:17-19)
  2. Treat others according to the Golden Rule: Do to others whatever you would want them to do to you.  (Matthew 7:12)
  3. Resolve conflict in a Christ-honoring manner.  (Matthew 18:15-17, 1 Peter 3:9)
  4. Seek to be a blessing.  (1 Peter 3:8, Matthew 22:37-40, Matthew 28:19)
  5. Live in a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.  (Romans 14:13)

Letter from the Head of School

Dr. Susan Blumenthal Ph.D
Head of School
susan.blumenthal@ufca.org

I am honored to serve as Head of School of United Faith Christian Academy. I couldn’t be more pleased to take a moment to encourage you to consider United Faith for your own family, especially as a long-standing member of the Falcon family myself!

The question we hear more than any other is, “How do I know if United Faith is right for me?” My answer is simply this – every student can learn to love God and love people more while concurrently being prepared to take their next step in life. That’s what we hope our families are looking for. And if you find yourself aligned with that philosophy, we believe United Faith may prove to be a wonderful home for your child as well.

I am constantly reminded that God has His hand on United Faith Christian Academy. He has preserved the school for such a time as this. And He has greater things in store for the future. He has provided an amazing team to serve Him at UFCA in Leadership, on the Board of Directors, and in the classrooms as faculty.

I hope you’ll choose to join us in what God is doing as you discover your own opportunity to make an impact.

Sincerely,

Susan R. Blumenthal, PhD
Head of School
