United Christian Academy seeks to be a school where Jesus Christ is preeminent and God through the Holy Spirit is acknowledged as the One who created all things, sustains all things, and works all things for His glory and our good. We honor the name of Christ by achieving excellence at all levels and developing the skills of our students to their fullest potential. These skills are developed deeply and broadly through Biblically-rooted instruction in academics. UCA instills in our students an attitude of servant leadership so that they are equipped to engage and transform the culture for Christ wherever God calls them.
In August 2016, United Christian Academy opened in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, to serve local children from financially disadvantaged households with a full-time Christian education and support system. The vision is to see our students come to know Jesus Christ as Savior, move out of physical and spiritual poverty, and one day become Christian leaders in their families and communities.
Going into our fourth year, we are now serving 22 students in grades 3-8 during the 2019-2020 school year.
Founded by United Christian Ministries, UCA is a “Christian Education Center” that grew out of a long time vision of wrapping around and deepening the support of the children served through UCM’s Bible studies across the city. We understand that in order to really give these children a chance to move forward in life, they need more support.
