Valley Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students. Valley Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, financial aid and athletic and other school-administered or sponsored programs and events.

Valley Christian Academy welcomes applications for admission from students entering PK 3 through grade 8. This is a three-step process. Once your application folder is complete with all of the documents required for admissions, you will be contacted to schedule testing and interview dates. Students at every grade level are required to turn in an application for admission. We actively seek to create and cultivate a loving, learning Christ-centered culture.

Step 1:
Complete and Submit the Application forms, one for each child you wish to enroll. Before the application can be processed, the following documents must be received:

  • Completed Application for Admission

  • Application fee of $100.00 (non-refundable)

  • Copy of the student’s transcript

  • Copy of most recent standardized achievement test scores (or comparable testing)

Step 2:
Interview and Assessment: A member of the School Board and/or the Principal will meet to discuss the particulars of your completed application and give you an opportunity to ask questions. Participation by both parents/ guardians is required. Before the interview can occur, the following documents must be received:

  • References (pastor’s referral form)

STANDARDS FOR EVALUATING PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS:

Spiritual Considerations

  • Personal Christian commitment of parents/guardians and student(s).

  • Willingness of parents/guardians and student(s) to be supportive of Valley Christian Academy’s philosophy of Christian education.

  • Willingness of parents/guardians and student(s) to support the administration and faculty in carrying out the goals and programs of Valley Christian Academy.

We support an environment that enriches the learning experience of the school community and prepares students to become leaders as well as followers of Christ in an ever-changing world.

Step 3: Notification of Acceptance:
After all of the above steps have been completed, the School Board and/or the Principal will review and rule on the application. Notification of acceptance will be sent by mail, and a response must be received within ten business days. All students are considered to be on probation for the first nine weeks at Valley Christian Academy. Excessive behavior problems or extremely poor academic performance may result in dismissal or recommendation to a lower grade level.
