Why did you choose to open a private school instead of a charter school?

We honor those who manage charter schools and wish them success. However, we are a Christian education system committed to raising young men and women of God who are compassionate, productive, contributing members of society.

It is our belief that this school system should be “covenant funded”; therefore, we humbly give our tithes and offerings at www.ibocchurch.org and invite you to join in our God-given vision. Charter schools are great for those who opt for it, but we are indebted to God to ensure we follow Christian principles, curriculum, and leadership classes that will blaze a path for our scholars that is unmatched.

We believe a private educational system will bless our surrounding community and nation. God Will Provide!

Why should I enroll my scholar at this institution?

We LOVE Kids!! We Are The School That Faith Built. The University of Dreams at IBOC has the vision to inspire dreamers to excellence and enlightenment through a holistic and Christ-centered approach to education.

Your children will be safe, secure and nurtured every day as they walk the halls of U of Dreams. Our administrators, faculty and staff members are Christian men and women who are committed to setting positive examples daily leading our scholars into faith, leadership, etiquette, character, and service. Not to mention our hands-on, constructivist approach to our curriculum and adherence to the state of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards.

Who is in charge of the daily operations of this amazing U of D school system?

One of President Barack Obama’s most famous quotes reminds us that “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

There is a powerhouse of high-quality school leadership (2 Directors and an Administrator), classroom educators and committed staff members who permeate the daily atmosphere of the University of Dreams at IBOC. It’s no wonder our Infants through Fifth Graders eagerly attend their content, bible and specials classes with an infectious excitement for consuming all the learning offered. U of D is blessed to hire men and women of strong character who lead, serve, instruct and nurture scholars to reach their God-given potential. We are intentionally humble leaders who operate in a spirit of peace under our F.L.E.C.S. tenets of Faith, Leadership, Etiquette, Character and Service. Our team of believers in Jesus Christ continue to train every scholar to positively impact various industries in our community, city, nation and world for Jesus Christ. Our hearts are overjoyed at the tireless dedication of our founder and visionary, Pastor Rickie G. Rush. We are love, honor, respect and appreciate him for teaching us how to develop unshakeable faith in God and steadfast study in the Word of God.

What can I expect regarding safety and security for my child at the University of Dreams at IBOC?

Our U of Dreams school campus is secured 24 hours a day/7 days a week with state-of-the-art surveillance and onsite, armed security services. Rest assured, your child is left in the best school environment this side of the earth. Every U of D parent is given a color-coded dashboard sign for their car to quickly identify parents and ensure scholars are leaving our campus with the correct adult parent or guardian. Additionally, the only visitors allowed on campus are those limited to specific delivery duties. Our classroom educators are highly trained and skilled in treating all scholars of all ages with the utmost respect and dignity. There is no corporal punishment of any nature administered at U of D. We have great expectations that our scholars will learn to self-manage their behavior as our outstanding leaders, educators and staff model the expected behaviors, procedures, rules and explain appropriate consequences.

Our scholars LOVE our U of D school system so much as our focus is on positive behaviors and rewards 99.9% of the school day. We Are Blessed With Amazing Scholars!

What are the SPECIALS CLASSES for University of Dreams scholars?

Our school week wouldn’t be the same without our amazingly anointed Specials Educators and Classes. U of D is known for our excellent stage productions and public speaking abilities of scholars. P.L.A.Y. (Physical Lessons for Anointed Youth) is filled with dynamic, socially-distanced active play that assists in character building, socialization and teamwork. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of our Visionary Seminary class? Scholars are taught the art of film, editing, video recording and production, praise songs, scripture and inspirational public speaking. That’s not it… Our Spanish Class is a force to be reckoned with. You will walk the halls of U of D and hear scholars of all ages practicing Spanish vocabulary, phrases and greetings. We’re still not done!

Our Theatre / Dance class is another opportunity for scholars to tap into their potential and realize their own dreams are slowly becoming reality. Our theatrical studio is aptly named after our beloved IBOC Church member, Sis. Irma P. Hall, and we honor her hard work in Hollywood, and thank God for her lasting legacy.
