Academics[edit]

United Faith has been expanding academic programs in recent years, adding Advanced Placement courses in 2008. As of 2009, AP Calculus and AP Literature, AP US History, and AP US Government and Politics are being taught by trained teachers. Also, in the foreign language department, Spanish and Chinese are offered to students. The Science Department is equipped with a lab for Chemistry and another lab for Biology and Anatomy. Bible classes are a requirement each year for a student to be permitted to graduate.

Athletics[edit]

United Faith encourages sportsmanship in all athletic performances. United Faith is a member of the SPAA conference and offers many different sports throughout the year for students. In the fall, girls may participate in volleyball or cross-country while boys may play soccer or also run cross-country. Winter sports include girls' and boys' basketball and cheerleading. In the spring, United Faith offers boys' soccer, baseball and co-ed golf.

Recently, under Coach Shaun Wiseman, the Varsity Boys' basketball team has excelled in the state. In 2008, the team finished runners up in the state tournament. Coming back strong in the 2008-2009 season, the team won the NCISAA 1A State Championship. Also in the 2008-2009 season, the Varsity Girls' basketball team was invited to the state tournament. This was the first time in United Faith's history that the girls' basketball team participated in a state tournament game. The Varsity volleyball team has also participated in the state tournament for several years.

The current Varsity Boys' basketball team is coached by former NBA giant Zach Flannigan
