UBICA utilizes Accelerated Christian Education® curriculum. This is a self paced curriculum design to help any student achieve their academic goals.
From its beginning, Accelerated Christian Education® has maintained high Biblical and academic standards and remained committed to setting children on a path for success. The goal is the same today: to prepare children for the world today and give them the academic and spiritual tools necessary to achieve their God-given potential.
UBIC Academy is a member of the Sunshine Christian League (SCL). This is a league made up of small Christian schools similar to UBICA. This gives us the opportunity to be competitive and play teams that represent the same core values and beliefs that we have. We believe that sports can be a very productive tool and vital in teaching students how to work together as well as teaching them what it means to be a part of something bigger than themselves. We use athletics not only as something fun and entertaining but also as a way to teach them spiritual disciplines that will carry on into their adult lives.
We believe in instilling in our students the character traits of Christ. Each student will be required to take Bible classes, memorize weekly/monthly scripture verses, attend daily chapel services, and are encouraged to work in a number of service projects to help them realize the joy and fulfillment that comes from being a servant.
