Empowers students to impact the world for Jesus Christ
What others are saying . . .
“When it comes to Mr. Poston’s impact on my academic career, I suppose it makes sense to start with my history with history…Back in my “pre-Postonian” days I thought that history was a throwaway class… That’s not what Mr. Poston taught. He told history as though it were a story. Instead of a collage of disjointed facts, history became a glorious revelation of God’s ordained story of the world.”- Jake Massingill, 2014 STAR student
To partner with Christian parents in the process of preparing their childern to impact the world for Jesus Christ by pursuing their God-given potential in academics, leadership, and service.

June 30, 2014 Unity Christian School Family, Unity Christian School is excited to introduce Mr. Mark Ackerman as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. We appreciate your faithful prayer support in our search for the next leader of our athletic programs. We believe that God has directed us to the right candidate to lead Unity athletics into a bright future of success in growing champions in competition, character and the classroom. Coach Ackerman has a B.S. in Physical Education from Gardner-Webb University where he played football as a wide receiver and a return specialist. He also earned a Master's Degree from St. Thomas University in Sports Administration. Coach Ackerman comes to UCS from Southwest Florida Christian Academy in Fort Meyers, Florida, where he served as the Athletic Director and Head Football Coach for the past four years. While there, he led the establishment of a new football program, the construction of a new football field, and added wrestling, track, tennis and swimming programs. His administration included supervision of more than 70 coaches. Coach Ackerman's programs have experienced success far beyond the football field. He has empowered several athletes to compete at the college level, and has helped many to earn scholarships in football, cheerleading, volleyball, softball, baseball, track and field, golf, and soccer. As the Head of School, I am excited that Coach Ackerman has joined the Unity Christian School team. I had the privilege of working with Mark for three years at Southwest Florida Christian Academy where he was an integral part of the leadership team. Coach Ackerman is a driven, hardworking athletic director and coach that promotes the entire athletic program. I believe he will be a great asset to Unity Christian School. Beyond coaching and athletic administration, Coach Ackerman has also served as the chaplain for the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team, served as a youth pastor, and a counselor for Kanakuk Kamps and K-Life Youth Ministries. According to Coach Ackerman, "I am excited about the opportunity Unity has offered me and my family. I am eager to get to Rome this summer, and I look forward to meeting the entire staff. There is always a great deal of work that has to be done when you have the transition of an Athletic Director and Head Football Coach, but I am ready to roll my sleeves up and get started." Addressing his calling to leadership in athletics, he added, "The challenge of working with young men and women in athletic ministry has always been something I have felt called to do. The majority of the student athletes we get to work with will never become future NFL, WNBA or MLB professional athletes, so, it is important to keep in mind every one of them will become a future mother or father, husband or wife, or a future businessman or businesswoman in the community. It is crucial we understand the role interscholastic athletics can play in helping them build a good foundation for each of these roles." Coach Ackerman has been married to his wife Jenny for 16 years, and they have three children, Julia, Rebecca, and David. Coach Ackerman will join the UCS team July 10, 2014. Please plan to attend a "Meet the Coach" gathering on Monday, July 14th at 6:30pm in the Upper Campus Chapel.
June 30, 2014 Unity Christian School Family, I hope you are having a fun and restful summer. It has been a busy time here at Unity even without the students in the classrooms and hallways. I look forward to the coming school year, the new excitement, the new relationships, and the new opportunities that will be there for all of us. As we prepare for what is to come, I would like to update you on some of the things we are doing to position Unity for a bright future as the leader in Christian education in Rome, and all of northwest Georgia. Coming Together as One Family With the Beyond the Books and Buildings campaign, our Board of Directors demonstrated a long-term commitment to providing Unity students with the best possible learning environments. We have already invested in technologies, security measures, new science labs and the Lion's Den. Now we are excited to announce our next big step to unify all of our students on one campus as one family as it should be! We are closing the Burton Road Campus and moving grades K3 -2nd grade to the Upper School Campus to create a unified school campus effective with the beginning of the 2014-15 school year. The recently formed One Campus Committee and Board of Directors have worked hard to make this a reality. There is still much work to be done before we open school on August 14th, but we have the proven team and plan to accomplish the task. Mr. Tom Baker and his team are hard at work with renovations and the moving of classrooms. We will hold an Open House on Saturday, August 9th at 10:00 a.m. to allow you to see the improvements and new class locations. Please pray for Mr. Baker and his team, the construction workers, and teachers as they strive to get the facility ready for the start of another school year. Commitment to Investing in Staff Growth and Development (CHANGE IN WEDNESDAY START TIME) One of my passions as a Head of School is staff development. I believe that teachers should be lifelong learners and that staff development is essential in having teachers of excellence. It is difficult with afterschool tutoring, extracurricular activities, and athletics to meet afterschool for training and communication. Therefore, with input from the staff we have decided to begin school later on Wednesdays. The school day will begin for students at 9:00 a.m. and teachers will be in staff development from 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. This will allow us to offer Bible and Professional CEU's to our teachers each school year and help them maintain their credentials. Beginning this school year, we will be working on ACSI/AdvancEd accreditation and The Truth Project. We will offer free before school care for students starting at 7:30 a.m. for parents that need to drop off early. Good Stewardship that Tastes Good This summer we have contracted with Schoolhouse Fare to manage our lunch program for the 2014-15 school year. Schoolhouse Fare provides a convenient school lunch program by contracting with restaurants such as Firehouse Subs, Chick-Fil-A, Johnny's Pizza, Panera Bread Company, and Teriyaki Passion to create nutritional menus for our students. They manage lunch orders, payments, lunch distribution at the school. In addition, they also offer online orders and payments for increased efficiency and time savings. Schoolhouse Fare works with the school to customize a monthly menu with one restaurant for each day of the week. The fresh, made to order lunches are individually packaged, labeled, nutritionist approved, and delivered to the school by the restaurants. UCS will also offer Borden milk, chocolate milk and lemonade as well. As you can see, it has been a busy time of planning for a great new year. I hope that you are as excited as I am for the upcoming semester. We're not rushing away the summer, but things are looking good for a brand you time at Unity. Be safe and be blessed, Mr. Eric Munn Head of School Unity Christian School
