Principal’s Greeting

Welcome to Upper Columbia Academy! Our campus is located 25 minutes south of Spokane on approximately 400 acres in a region known as the Palouse. We have been educating students since 1945. Our college preparatory high school experience is available to both boarding and day students. We provide rigorous academic coursework as well as multiple elective opportunities.

Students fill their time with choices that include band, choir, church programs, community outreach, digital photography and design, gymnastics, horsemanship program, industrial design, orchestra, student leadership, stained-glass, work program, various sports, and more. We offer a full industrial arts program with classes in CAD design, welding, woodworking, and auto mechanics. Our educational philosophy is centered around the concept of educating the whole person. We believe it is important for students to have opportunities for practical, hands-on learning and to continue developing a personal relationship with Christ.

I look forward to getting to know you as you consider the UCA family.

In His service,
Eric Johnson
UCA Principal
