Valley Christian Academy partners with parents/guardians to provide a distinctively Christian education with academic excellence in the context of a Biblical worldview in order to expand the knowledge and critical thinking skills of our students, which will develop their God-given potential to impact the world under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Valley Christian Academy’s vision is to impact our world by preparing students to become Godly men and women, as we implement Discipleship (Mt. 28:15–20), expect Excellence (1 Cor. 10:31), and encourage Integrity (Psalm 15).
Disciples are those who are simply loving God and seeking to learn from Him and follow Him in all we think, say, and do. Jesus calls us to speak the Gospel and to also develop relationships with others so they can learn how to follow Jesus Christ in their own lives. Mt. 28:15-20
When a student grasps the impact of the Gospel and recognizes the love and sacrifice of Jesus to provide salvation for a lost world, the natural response should be to live a life of excellence, a life worthy of such love and sacrifice. At Valley Christian Academy, students are encouraged to complete all tasks, whether they are academic, athletic, or artistic, with the mindset that they are working to bring glory to God. I Cor. 10:31
Those who are followers of Jesus are called to lives of integrity, which means that their attitudes and behaviors are wholesome and blameless at all times, not just when they are being watched by someone else. A person who lives with integrity understands that he is ultimately responsible to God and will give an account to Him for all things. Psalm 15
