Hello Parents, Students, Alumni, and Friends of UVC, April 2014
April 24 – Take Me Out To UVC
Thursday, April 24th will be a big day in the life of UVC!! We are planning an enrollment Open House on Thursday April 24th from 6:00pm-8:00pm. We are setting aside that night exclusively for the Open House with all UVC Staff involved in the event. There is no other UVC activity planned for that evening. We are hosting the event in the UVC Deer Creek gymnasium and we will be highlighting 28 different areas of our school from preschool-12th grade in 28 different booths. Each booth will be easily identifiable with a designated sign and each booth will be decorated with a trifold poster with pertinent information for review. We are asking our current families to attend and prayerfully consider inviting a family that you know who might be interested in UVC. The evening will be filled with information and answers to any enrollment questions your guests may have. There will also be entertainment, free food and lots of “give aways”. All current families and all new prospective families that attend will be entered to win a $500 tuition gift certificate to be used for 2014-2015 school year tuition. You should have already received information in the mail about this event along with at least two invitation cards to hand out to prospective families you would like to invite. Please join us in this enrollment event!
Why Enroll Your Student at UVC?
As mentioned last month, over the last 37 years of providing an excellent education from a biblical worldview (1977-2013), UVC has acquired a graduation rate of 99% with a graduation on-time rate of 98.8%. That is an amazing statistic that is worth repeating this month!! Also, as mentioned last month in my March Monarch message, these 99% of UVC graduates have gone on to very reputable colleges and universities around the country. Upon graduation from these reputable colleges and universities, UVC graduates have entered the following vocations: Nursing, US Military, Education, Aviation, Law, Business Management, Power Lineman, Electrician, Pastor, Postal Worker, Butcher, X-Ray Technician, Realtor, Log Truck Driver, Law Enforcement, Home Maker, United Parcel Service Worker, Medicine, Missionary, Chef, Musician, Rancher, Beautician, Fireman/EMT, Bank Teller, Business Entrepreneur, and Photography and others.
By graduating your student from UVC, your student will be joining a corps of very well educated and well-rounded students who have a proven track record not only of successful enrollment at some of the top universities around the country but have also entered the work force in very reputable and challenging vocations. This is great information to share with a friend who may be interested in enrolling at UVC.
International Student Program
Last month, we made the announcement that UVC will be pursuing an International Student Program and announced that UVC will not only be recruiting international students but also International Student Host Families. We have put together a UVC Host Family Handbook that explains the responsibilities of Host Family, what the process is to become a Host Family and the financial compensation Host Families can expect for being a Host Family. If you are interested in becoming a Host Family for an international student, please call the school office for a Handbook.
UVC Business Academy
It is worth mentioning again that in conjunction with the directive to launch an International Student Program, the UVC Board also decided to launch a sister Business Academy Program for UVC and International Students. The UVC Business Academy is designed to train young minds in the art of establishing and growing a business from a biblical worldview. UVC students will also have access to these business classes as electives if they so choose. So as your students register for classes for next year please be aware that there will be new Business classes available to them for enrollment.
UVC Auction Results
The 5th Annual UVC Let It Shine Auction was a HUGE success this year. Thank you to everyone involved in making it a great evening. This year the total amount of funds raised was $55,000. The Frenzy raised enough money to purchase our technology improvements for each classroom on both the Roberts Creek and the Deer Creek campuses. Thank you to all our generous supporters.
UVC Future First Citizen Scholarship Award
During the UVC Let It Shine Auction, the winner of the 2014 UVC Future First Citizen Scholarship Award was announced.
