Victory Christian Academy
PARENT / STUDENT
It is the purpose of Victory Christian Academy to provide a well-rounded Christian education for its students. Our goal is to train and teach students that they can excel in education. We strive to give the best we can and help them strengthen their weak areas. By providing an education with Biblical principles, we believe our students receive the best that is offered in education today. It is our conviction that a Christian school is obligated to incorporate the Bible in academic studies. It is our goal that the "SPlRlT of EXCELLENCE" shall be demonstrated in every area of our school.
Victory Christian Academy (VCA) offers 13 years of education from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The academic year will be based on nine-week quarters. The general spiritual objective within the pages of each of the basic academic subjects is to train the child to see life from God's point of view, to shape attitude, and to mold character to the image of Jesus. Thus, VCA rejects the philosophy/religion of humanism, which we believe to be inconsistent with the Holy Scriptures and harmful to society. Furthermore, we cannot accept humanism in any form.
1. The student should progress toward a well-balanced life while enrolledin the school. Attitudes and motives are extremely important in this progression.
2. The student should gain essential social skills for a well-adjusted life.
3. The student should acquire study skills which equip him/her to become a lifetime learner.
4. The student should realize the place that authority occupies in society and in the church.
5. The student should exhibit progress in all academic endeavors.
6. The student should obtain academic knowledge and skills necessary for a productive life.
7. The student should expand his knowledge and skills, according to his/her ability, beyond the discipline and curriculum offered by the school.
8. The student should learn the importance of placing the priorities of this life in proper order.
In summary, the school should stimulate the student to improvement in the following areas:
spiritual life, mental life, social life and physical life.
In Proverbs 22:6, the Bible clearly shows us that parents are to train their children in the right way. Therefore, we desire that the parents are actively involved with the school and are aware of their child's progress at all times by reinforcing at home their child's school work.
Parent/teacher conferences will be scheduled as needed to insure the best possible progress of a child's learning. To prevent misunderstandings, parents and teachers are expected to communicate quickly on all questions concerning school matters.
In the area of discipline, we need the parents to support the faculty and staff, to openly discuss the problem, then for the parents to choose whatever means of discipline is necessary for the situation. The faculty will not take any measures of discipline without the parent's consent. We want to work with the parents and not against them.
A book/registration fee is to be paid prior to the ordering of materials. This does not cover any supplies the students may need for particular classes, nor does it cover any testing at the end of the year. Also, VCA is a conviction school, therefore, we do not charge tuition. We ask that the parents determine what they can give weekly or monthly and be faithful to fulfill that commitment.

An important part of a child's education is learning discipline and the ability to take responsibility. Parents play an important role in helping their child develop good habits for a well-disciplined life. Continually being tardy is not good training for any child. Habitual tardiness will not be tolerated.

Major violations or repeated offenses may result in suspension
or expulsion by the administration.
In establishing Victory Christian Academy, we are endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit as we are about the Master's business. We desire to see your child be all that God wants them to be. We feel providing quality education will help to achieve that goal.
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
"Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right."
