Valley Christian Academy seeks to embrace a philosophy of education which is firmly based upon principles derived from God's Word.
There are several principles in particular which have shaped the development of our school.
These are not exhaustive, but they are foundational.
The mission of Valley Christian Academy, as a ministry of Baptist Church, is to provide Christ-centered education for pre-school through twelfth grade students.
This will be accomplished by helping to ensure that each student has a personal relationship with Christ, educating the students through a superior academic and extracurricular program, strengthening the family each child represents, and helping each students realize God's purpose in his life and his place in God's church.
