University Christian High School offers an academic program that is designed for the student who is planning on attending a university and wants to be academically prepared.
Students in their FRESHMAN and SOPHOMORE years will take the core courses of Math, English, History, Science, Religion, and Foreign Language. Freshmen will have the additional requirement of Health/PE. All of these core academic classes will be taught on the Honors level (except Algebra I, Health/PE, Spanish I and Spanish II). The North Carolina End-of-Course Exam will be administered in those courses so designated. To complete their schedules, students have the opportunity to take elective classes from University Christian High School, online vendors, or other educational providers. UCHS utilizes standardized test score performance as a guide for course level placement when preparing semester schedules.
In their JUNIOR and SENIOR year of high school, students have the opportunity to take college classes at Lenoir-Rhyne University as Dual Enrollment classes. All of the entry-level classes at LRU are available to our students. Over twenty-five classes are available including five foreign languages, economics, sociology, art, drama, advanced science and math classes. These college class credits may be transferred to the college or university of your choice. Students will also have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement Classes as early as their sophomore year.
