United Christian Academy


UCA Names Elementary School Admin Team

United Christian Academy is thrilled to welcome our new elementary principal team Mrs. Leah Knight and Mrs. Reta Kennon.

Mrs. Leah Knight is passionate to lead the elementary by guiding children in Christ and fulfilling the legacy of her grandmother, Mrs. Barbara Powell. After graduating from UCA, Leah continued her education with a softball scholarship at Longwood University to earn her bachelors degree. This past year Leah has so lovingly and excitedly taught one of our UCA K-4 classes. Leah and her husband, Satchel, attend First Bible Baptist Church and are eager to contribute to the Christian growth of all Crusaders.

Mrs. Reta Kennon is well-known at UCA to step up to the plate and passionately build Crusaders for Christ. She has dedicated the past 15 years loving, educating, and praying for the elementary students of UCA. During her tenure, she has primarily taught 2nd grade and has enjoyed coaching basketball and volleyball. She has also had the joy of being mom to four UCA and Liberty University graduates. Reta and her husband, Leo, have been married for 37 years and attend Legacy Church.
We welcome the prayers and support of the parents as this dynamic team lead the little hearts of UCA to grow in Christ Jesus.

UCA Names New High School Principal

United Christian Academy is honored to introduce you to our new high school principal, Jason Lauer, M. Ed.. Jason earned his undergraduate and masters in education from Liberty University and has been involved in public school education for 20 years. He also was a baseball and basketball coach at various schools in which he taught.

Jason was saved and baptized as a young boy and has grown in the church. He has been married to his wife, Krystal Cersley Lauer for 14 years, and they have three sons Kennon (10), Kayden (9), and Karter (6). Krystal is an alumnus of UCA, and their three boys have attended UCA since preschool. Their family is active at Chestnut Grove Baptist Church in Earlysville and very involved in numerous community service projects.

Jason’s vision is to carry the mission of our founder James E. Woods and the legacy of Barbara Powell to build Crusaders in Christ. Please welcome him and his family again to the UCA family.


At UCA, we provide a nurturing environment and academic excellence with a solid, Christian foundation for children in grades Pre-K through 12th grade.

We invite you to come explore the academy to see firsthand the many programs and activities offered to equip young men and women as future leaders!

The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
