FAQ

  • How long has Uvalde Classical Academy (UCA) been in operation?
    • Uvalde Classical Academy has been in operation since 2008.  Since it's inception, enrollment has steadily increased from 10 students to 80 students (current enrollment for Fall 2016).  
  • How are UCA students taught?
    • UCA is a Pre-K through 12th grade Christian Classical school that teaches based on The Trivium — a 3-part educational process with 3 phases (Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric) whereupon each phase is dependent upon and builds on the other phases.  To learn more about The Trivium and classical education, please read An Introduction to Classical Education.
  • Why should I consider UCA for my child?
    • Classical education is a proven method of teaching which structures learning in accordance with the God-given stages of child development.  According to the Association of Classical Christian Schools, (ACCS), "Classical, Christian schools provide the best possible education to help every child reach his or her God-given potential".  Classical Christian education uses methods and content that develop thinking, articulate, well-rounded graduates.  
  • Do we need to attend any particular church to be accepted into UCA?
    • UCA is a non-denominational Christian school.  That means we are delighted to have local area churches represented among our student body.  Our staff and board members also come from a number of strong local churches.  We operate under our Statement of Faith
  • Is UCA accredited by the state?
    • No.  UCA believes the State (political governing authority) was never given the role of educating children.  In God's Word, He clearly assigns that task to parents (Deut. 6, Eph. 6).  Therefore, as a school, we answer to the collective and individual parental authority, as outlined in our policies.  UCA takes parental authority and parental involvement very seriously. We also believe that accountability to an outside agency is wise.  Therefore, we are associated with the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS).   
  • How many of your graduates go on to attend college?
    • 100% of our graduating seniors go on to attend college.  The fact that UCA is not accredited by the state has not hindered our graduates from entering higher education institutions.
