Life Skills

Elective Programs

Urban Vision strongly supports elective programs as a way to learn, meet new people, and have a great time. UV proudly offers programs designed to strengthen body, mind, and faith. Our elective programs attempt to engage students in fun activities that partner them with life coaches to help instill life skills.

Bible Quizzing

IMG_0075UV’s Bible quizzers study and memorize verses from a selected book of the Bible each year with coaches Bob and Cathy Mellen.

Besides studying God’s word, quizzers also learn new vocabulary, study skills, teamwork, and gain confidence speaking before an audience. Bible quizzers compete with other quiz teams every month by answering questions on the verses they’ve memorized. Quizzers must know the Scripture and be able to quickly give an answer.

In His Steps Ballet

There are three  classes of girls (beginner, intermediate, and performance) currently taking ballet lessons and working on performance pieces for different events throughout the year.

 

Basketball

Currently we offer Summer Ball and Fall Ball. There are two sessions each season; One session for 6-9 year-olds and a second session for 10-13 year-olds. Each session consists of skills training and team play.

Choir

Our students get the chance to strengthen the voice that God has given them. The choir travels for many concerts to share God’s love through song.
