As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, UC Academy’s leadership is continually evaluating and choosing paths that best meet the needs of our students and school community. We believe that in-person learning is the best mode for social, spiritual, and physical growth for our children. However, the threats of the coronavirus are real, and we must move forward in a way that mitigates its spread. We continue to make decisions that best reflect the needs of UC Academy as a whole while observing health guidelines that fight the spread of the disease.
The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health granted an Elementary Waiver to United Christian Academy, and we began offering in-person instruction that started on September 2nd. With Elementary now open, UCA has been following the guidelines issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for safe school opening. We trust that these guidelines were established by medical professionals and government officials with the best information available for combatting the virus. These guidelines are the best-practice standards currently available, and we are committed to following them to the best of our ability to help ensure teacher and student safety. We recognize that families have very diverse opinions on these guidelines. In fairness to everyone, UC Academy is committed to following the guidelines without adding to them (as some may want) or taking anything away (as others may want). The video below is a summary of our health safety procedures.
Grades 6-12 Cohort Learning Options
United Christian Academy is offering a hybrid model of instruction for grades 6-12, giving students the option of attending in-person cohorts or continuing to attend classes virtually (online). The cohort in-person learning is being offered under the CDPH Guidance for Small Cohorts/Group and Youth. As students return to campus, we will be following health and safety protocols as summarized by this video.
