VFCA was founded in the fall of 1987 offering students a sheltered, caring environment that causes them to flourish in Christian character, to know God, and to develop academically and socially.
Our desire is to partner with Christian parents to be an extension of the Christian home.
Quality academics are crucial; therefore, we have degreed, professional teachers and we use A Beka and Bob Jones curricula.
We believe in reaching out to the community and the world so we have taken students on mission trips to Russia, Jamaica and Guatemala, as well as numerous trips to Montgomery and Washington, D.C.
Prayerfully consider the school environment that is best for your child.
VFCA may be the school that is right for you.
The faculty and staff of VFCA are honored to be used by God in training the next generation.
A Christian, quality education is priceless.

School Reviews

  • Recommended August 30, 2014 - Run far away! The people that you meet when you interview will be very different from the people you speak with a month afterwards. They want your money and when you leave and they will want you to leave unless you follow them like lemmings. When you leave they will be able to keep your money and that is their strategy! This is not a Christian school, as they seek to portray. It is a cult school....Run..Run..Run - Posted by Parent
