United Christians International believes that a solid, Christian education is key to addressing both spiritual and physical poverty within their community.  UCI now operates 2 Elementary schools and a highschool providing education to over 1300 children, as well as a Christian University and Tech School for over 900 students!

Elementary School

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6​

UCI is committed to providing a biblically-based education and utilizes certified teachers. There is a scholarship program that allows students the opportunity to go to school. At UCI, the parents are encouraged to work once a month at the school to help pay back and invest in their child’s education. Justin Mompremier ensures the teachers are adhering to the national standards of education and UCI's standards for spiritual formation.

Just $15 USD per month provides a child with a quality Christian education, and a meal each day.

UCI University

“A Biblically-transformed life that will transform the lives of the Haitian people and the world.”

UCI opened the University in 2012 with 80 students and has now grown to over 900 students. There is a science lab, computer lab, dissection lab, clinic, and the school has Internet in the classrooms, all for use in extensive training to build up well-rounded, well-trained students. On all levels of schooling, there is a scholarship program that allows students the opportunity to go to school. All university scholarship recipients have work-study, behavioral, and academic requirements. Lamour Mompremier is our board member that oversees the dorm life at the university, helps with disciplinary issues, and verifies that our accreditation requirements will be met.  The following programs are currently offered at the accredited University:​

  • Theology (4 years)
  • Agriculture Science (5 years)
  • Nursing (4 years)
  • Medical Doctor (6 years)
  • Elementary Education Degree (3 years)

School time!

Every morning the kids line up to watch the raising of the Haitian flag. In addition to prayer, singing a hymn and the national anthem, and reciting Bible verses, the kids sing the school song. Then it is off to their separate classes!

This is their school song:

"The Students of Unity Christian School, Work so hard so we can get better, And we will advance into the future, We are friends and our goal is to succeed

WITH JESUS, WE ARE THE STUDENTS OF UNITY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL OF CAIMAN!

There are 63 first graders in a single room. Another room to be built soon!

There have been lots of improvements in the High School! A new gate and chain link fence have been installed, there are individual desks, new offices, bathrooms, and a teacher's lounge is being constructed. As well as a new kitchen and eating gazebo. The older kids had been eating at the elementary school which was becoming too crowded. It is so nice for them to have their own space.

The school lunch program is very important right now since food is scarce. This is the only meal for many of the children. They were able to make new stoves for the ladies which has helped them become more efficient and has made cooking easier.
