Academics and Culture
Upton Lake Christian School (ULCS) has been educating children and youth in New York's Hudson Valley for over 30 years. God is blessing this school and provides our young people with an engaging traditional complement of educational benefits. Everyone who works with our students is a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. This school is spiritually and physically supported by the Evangelical Free Church of Clinton Corners and Rock Solid, a clothing collection ministry.
Teachers: Professionally trained teachers encourage children by teaching to multiple intelligences, understanding that each student is unique with giftings and talents. Our teachers make learning fun and exciting!
Families: Dedicated families sacrifice to send their children to an environment where God is honored, and classmates and parents have similar values.
Chapel: We hold weekly chapels. These are times to worship our amazing Lord and to be taught from the Scriptures. The high school Bible teacher provides the theme and coordinates the preaching of local pastors.
Curriculum: Brain research provides many new teaching methods and resources which are reviewed and updated each year.
Faith Building: Students are being challenged to live out their faith through leadership opportunities, community service, mission trips, and mentoring.
Interactive: Elementary and high school students occasionally blend in a family friendly environment.
Computer technology: Following a program designed by Boston University and the University of Virginia, each student is taught word, excel, publisher, and internet research skills within the context of classroom assignments.
Personal Attention: One to five teacher student ratio provides individual help and attention.
SAT prep: Most of our students are college bound and we give them guidance as they prepare for SAT's and assist them with the process of applying to the college of their choice.
Prayerful: Our God can do so much more than we can. He is here working with us through the power of the Holy Spirit ‘moving mountains', comforting the hurting, bringing truth, love, grace, and knowledge to each of our students.
Christian Living: ULCS creates a safe, peaceful environment that honors Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. All students enjoy this positive and nurturing place where they can understand and know God as their creator and lover of their souls. Scripture memory allows God's Word to permeate a student's worldview.
