UCHS and College Campuses
A Partnership in Discovery
University Christian High School students learn to navigate the college experience while never leaving home. By junior and senior year, UCHS students are intellectually and socially prepared for success at the college level. With the benefit of support from UCHS faculty and staff, and alongside friends and classmates, students have the ability to push further into independent thinking and study as they enroll in classes at Lenoir Rhyne University, Appalachian State University and Catawba Valley Community College.
The courses are taught by college professors and taken alongside college students. Through this opportunity, our students explore a variety of intellectual interests in the familiar environment of their high school campus. By the time the students graduate from UCHS, they will have the advantage of understanding college level schedule building, how to appropriately interact with professors, completing collegiate assignments and invaluable time management skills.
Learn to go to College, before going to College.
Go to UCHS, then Go Anywhere.
We began our partnership with Lenoir-Rhyne University in 2010 with the shared vision of creating a world-class, highly-academic, faith-based college preparatory institution. Through classes that blend intellectual discussion with practical application, visiting speakers, and experiential learning, LRU and UCHS provide students with a rigorous and competitive education.
- Students are eligible to take Lenoir-Rhyne courses as a junior if they have a 3.0 unweighted GPA.
- Juniors can take up to 4 dual-enrollment courses per year, and seniors can have up to 6 dual-enrollment courses per year, for a maximum of 30 hours (10 dual-enrollment courses) total.
Some typical courses students take are: COM 111 (Speech); ENG 131 (Critical Writing); MAT 115 (Statistics); ECO 121/122 (Micro/Macroeconomics); BIO 121 (Principles of Biology); ENT 210 (Entrepreneurship) SOC 100 (Intro Sociology), PSY 100 (Intro Psychology), among many others.
