Welcome to Upper Bucks Christian School!
We are glad to see you are interested in furthering your education in America! At Upper Bucks, we keep our classroom ratio of International:American students to around 20%. This ratio is designed to give you the opportunity for a strong immersion into the English language as well as exposure to the American culture.
What Do We Offer?
We offer a traditional education curriculum in English, History, Math, and Science. We also require all students to attend a Bible class each day. We offer Honors classes in each high school class subject as well as AP Calculus. We also plan on adding more AP classes in future school years. ESL support is available during the school day, with after school tutoring available for an additional cost. High school students can also join dual-enrollment online classes to get ahead in some of their college courses. All International students are eligible to participate in our fine arts and athletic departments. Student involvement is strongly encouraged as this is a great way to experience High School life in America!
