Welcome to Upper Columbia Academy!

Welcome to the UCA Faculty and Staff web pages. We have a wonderful group of dedicated individuals working together to benefit the students on our campus. From our teachers to our taskforce volunteer workers, everyone’s goal is to draw our students closer to Jesus Christ while obtaining a top-notch, well-rounded education.
Please take a few moments and peruse our staff pages. If you click on their picture, you will find their contact information along with a short bio about them. Feel free to contact me or any one of them, if you have questions about your student or are looking to have a student join us.
We are always excited to have students join our UCA family.
Enjoy your time on our website and be sure to contact us if we can further assist you.
