UCA Celebrates Influx of Freshmen

December 19, 2019 | Education | Donivan Andregg

Every year when the senior class graduates, there is a hole in enrollment that needs to be filled. Teachers and administration follow up on leads, rely on church members and other schools, contact extended families, and of course pray God will direct students to the school.

This year at Upper Columbia Academy (UCA) in Spangle, Wash., the freshman class is the largest on record — 56 students. These students have come largely from across the Upper Columbia Conference and nearby regions — and from as far away as Alaska, California, Colorado, Alberta (Canada) and China.

Part of the enrollment increase comes from the new relationship between Lake City Academy in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and UCA. An extension program has been created to provide distance learning for students in Coeur d’Alene three days per week and on the UCA campus two days per week. There are 16 extension students.

UCA is praising God for His guidance and blessings.
