NEWPORT -- United Christian Academy is planning it's annual Community Service day for Oct. 28. Students plan to do leaf raking in the community and extensive clean up at Prouty Beach and Gardner Park which are remaining open longer this year than in years past because of flooding in the spring and during the hurricane.

PSATs will be taking place at United Christian Academy, Wednesday, Oct. 12. UCA will be administering the PSATs for the school's students and for a limited number of home-schooled students in grades 10 and 11. Testing will be held at the Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church in Derby. For members of the junior class (2013) the PSAT is the primary means in which national academic merit scholarships are offered. Colleges also look at scores on the PSAT to determine scholarship allocations for entering students in the fall of 2014. Juniors therefore are encouraged to take this test. Sophomores should consider taking the test as a practice for their junior year.
