Lower School (TK-5)

The Lower School at UFCA comprises students in grades TK-5th. The faculty and staff at UFCA work together to provide a “whole” education to develop the heart, mind, body and soul of every lower school student through excellence in academics, athletics, fine arts, spiritual development and technology.  In addition to their academic day, Lower School students go to Spanish or Chinese, Music, Art, Computer and Library once a week.

Fourth and Fifth grades have expanded our Be A Blessing program by becoming “buddies” with the preschool classes.
