UVCS is a ministry of the Leavenworth Church of the Nazarene

UVCS History

Upper Valley Christian School came into existence in 1979 as a ministry of the Leavenworth Church of the Nazarene because Pastor Jim West had a vision to begin a Christian School in the Upper Valley. It began with just 20 students, and is now ministering to81 children and their familiesthis year. In those years, we have had the opportunity to minister to around 600 students. Some of them have subsequently graduated from college, gone to the mission field, medical school, the military or other fields of endeavor. We have even had our first second-generation student enroll in 1994-95.
God has truly blessed UVCS in those years. He has been faithful in every way through difficult financial times, trials, and growth. His faithfulness to us demonstrates our need to be faithful to Him in everything that we do. This is His school above all else. He established it. He sustains it. Without Him, we would be lost. It is our responsibility to be faithful to Him who called us.

UVCS Statement of Faith

In brief, we believe:

  1. That there is one God - The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. That the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
  3. That man is born with a fallen nature and therefore is inclined to evil, and that continually.
  4. That the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race, and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from condemnation of sin.
  5. That the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
  6. That the believers are to be sanctified wholly and subsequent to regeneration, through the faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. That our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgement will take place.

Our Kindergarten Teacher

Carol Matheson is currently teaching Kindergarten at Upper Valley Christina School.
She has been teaching at
UVCS for eight years, and has taught 3rd and 4th grades
in the past. Prior to her time at UVCS, Carol taught at St.
Paul's Lutheran School in Wenatchee and before that she taught
kindergarten at Wenatchee Christian Academy. Carol has a love for
kindergarten age students and is looking forward to providing a
exciting learning environment for them to begin their school careers.

It is my great desire that, above all else, your child's first year of school be filled with a confidence in learning. I believe this is entirely possible if the focus is on Christ and the wonderful scriptures that states, "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." (Phil. 4:13). Ours is a "can do" classroom. From day one through day 180, your child will be trained in "God-fidence" (confidence) as they explore the world of learning spiritually, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Our Kindergarten curriculum of Phonics, Math, and monthly/seasonal theme units is highly integrated to include all learning styles. Thus, no child is left without the opportunity to progress in all aspects of learning. Each day is new and exciting; an adventure in life that will result in a happy, knowledge, and most importantly, "God-fident" child. ~ Carol Matheson


Tuition & Fees 2012-2013
It is the policy of U.V.C.S. to keep the costs of schooling within the reach of everyone. We operate on a very close budget. Therefore it is imperative that all accounts be paid on time. When a payment is missed, the budget suffers. Parents are responsible to the Lord for their children's care.

Tuition and fees for Upper Valley Christian School have been established as follows:

  1. A materials fee of $225 for kindergartners, $335 for 1st - 8th, $395 for High School is due at the time of registration. This payment will ensure that your child has a seat in school for the coming year. This fee will cover one year's supply of text books.
  2. Students must furnish their own pencils, crayons, erasers, scissors, lined paper, note books and Kleenex.
  3. Tuition may be paid in full, or in ten monthly installments. If paid by the month, payments are due on the first of each month and are considered late after the tenth. A late fee of $25 will be added if not paid by the tenth of the month.
  4. Tuition checks are to be made out to UVCS, but deposited with the Leavenworth Branch of Cashmere Valley Bank. Payments may be dropped off or mailed to Cashmere Valley Bank, PO Box 249, Leavenworth, WA, 98826. The first payment is due Aug. 1st.
