Unity Christian School History
Partnering with Christian parents…
In 1998, the pastors of West Rome Baptist, North Rome Church of God, Hollywood Baptist, and Fellowship Baptist Church, united in a shared vision to establish a Christian school in Rome, GA. The founding pastors prayerfully laid a foundation for a partnership with Christian parents in addressing the academic and spiritual needs of their children. Soon after, the pastors of Thankful Baptist Church and the First Assembly of God joined the founding pastors, further establishing a provisional board of trustees.
Unity Christian School opened in 1998 with 47 students studying in K4 to 5th grade. With the purchase of the former Battey Machinery building, located on the corner of Highway 53 and the Rome Bypass, Unity was able to offer a high school program. Unity began to grow quickly in this new location as a beacon for Christian education in the Rome community. The school became known for its commitment to Biblical worldview integration throughout its curriculum and was recently lauded by accreditors as performing among the nation’s top ten percent in this area.
Today, Unity Christian School is a private, coeducational, college preparatory school that serves more than 370 students in grades Pre-K3 to 12. Unity students come from seven surrounding counties and represent more than 60 area church congregations. As enrollment continues to expand, the school has added new science labs, a new gymnasium, and playground area for elementary and preschool. In the upcoming school year, the school will open its new middle school wing while updating and enhancing curriculum throughout the school.
Unity Christian School is also blessed by financial partnerships with nine local churches and more than 50 corporate sponsors. Along with the support of parents, generous private donors, and these financial partners, the school’s current Education on Purpose Strategic Initiative campaign has successfully provided additional scholarships for students, advancements in technology, improvements in facilities, and growth opportunities for athletics and the fine arts.
