When you participate in the Lightning Bolt you are part of something big. Your effort, whether you walk or run, has a direct impact on the lives of our students. Through your support we are able to provide top-notch, private Christian education to the students of Leamington and Essex County. 

We want to tell you why the Lightning Bolt is important to us. Why your support of this race matters. Better yet, let our students tell you why UMEI is important to them. 

"At my old high school, my teachers saw me as a student. At UMEI, my teachers see me as a person."
- Iseonna Silliker (2016 transfer student)

"In retrospect, developing my character and values in a close-knit community environment where I was free to be myself, and didn’t feel the kind of peer pressure that I might have at a different school, made all the difference in becoming who I am today."
- Mike Wiens (UMEI Grad 2006)

At UMEI, our goal is to help young people reach their full potential spiritually and academically so they’re empowered to make a difference.
