In 2000…Union Christian Academy began as our Lord placed a burden on the hearts of seven families in Union Parish. In May of 2000 the Lord provided the use of Crestview Baptist Church. In June the Lord provided teachers for grades K4 through 4th. Registration began June 22, 2000. Forty percent of Union Christian Academy’s target enrollment for the 2000-2001 school year was registered the first week. We praise the Lord for His goodness and grace and rejoice in the opening of Union Christian Academy.
In 2003…A facility became available located at 110 West Hill Street, Farmerville, Louisiana. Renovations to Wing C and Wing D of the building started in the summer of 2003 to be ready for the 2004-2005 school year. This facility welcomed approximately 141 students from K3-7th grades that school year. Wing B was completed in 2004-2005 and Wing C completed for 2005-2006.
In 2006…The Pride Assembly Center was opened, housing the 7th-10th grades, with 11th-12th to be added in 2007 and 2008 respectively, and housing the cafeteria, and gymnasium.

Being directed by God, Union Christian Academy is committed to educating our children in biblical values, character development, and academic excellence. We acknowledge this can only be achieved through obedience to our Lord with prayer, support, and cooperation of the families, Christian churches, and communities in Union Parish.
To change Union Parish by preparing a generation to: 1) view the world through the lens of the gospel of Jesus Christ; 2) have an intimate growing relationship with Jesus Christ; 3) apply biblical principles to everyday life; 4) stand for what is right and moral; 5) unite churches and families in Christ; 6) grow our community spiritually, socially, and economically.
Our Philosophy of Education
The education philosophy of Union Christian Academy is based on a God-centered view, that all truth is God’s truth and that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God containing this truth.
The curriculum of UCA arises from the philosophy that places God, not man, in the center of all things. (Colossians 2:3, Proverbs 1:7)
UCA, as an educational institution, believes bringing up a child in Christ-likeness is primarily the responsibility and biblical duty of the parent and church. Our school exists, therefore to assist in that education, without replacing the family or the church’s role.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15, 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33);
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35);
His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15);
His miracles (John 2:22);
His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9);
His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4);
His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19);
His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11)
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace through faith alone we are saved. (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life; and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18)
These statements of Faith are important to our school and serve as the foundation of all that we do. If you find yourself in disagreement with these statements, please seriously consider whether or not you should enroll your child in our school. We will not compromise on the tenets of our faith.
