School Notes

  • Teaching the Christian faith is integrated in all we do, because we believe in one God who is eternally revealed through the Creator, our Heavenly Father and source of knowledge; through Jesus Christ, His only Son and our source of salvation; and through the Holy Spirit, the Sustainer and Giver of Faith.
  • Qualified Christian teachers provide an excellent learning environment of safety, security, respect, and Christ’s love.
  • Academic excellence is attained through the core curriculum, which is sequential, cumulative, and developmentally appropriate for each grade level.
  • Students experience educational opportunities to develop good communication, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaborative skills enabling them to lead the Church and their generation into the future.

Both of our children attended this school from kindergarten, one completing 8th grade here & the other through 7th grade. Our eldest was very successful at JSerra Catholic High School & is in university in Washington, D.C.; both our kids thrived in the small school environment & Christian atmosphere, even though we are Catholic ( not Lutheran). Our daughter remains friends with some of her classmates & we loved her teachers. Full day kindergarten was great as was the accelerated Math program, which enabled our daughter to take AP calculus as a junior in high school. She continued to excel in Math throughout high school & won the Math award for her senior class. Our son made wonderful friends here & enjoyed the sports ( soccer, track, basketball) as much as the Math program ( seriously); he also has been able to attain advanced math classes in high school due to AVCS. More importantly, AVCS found an amazing music teacher who encouraged the 6th graders to choose an instrument, something we had tried on our own to get our son into, without success. He began clarinet at AVCS & is now playing in the orchestra at J Serra. We remain in touch with several teachers & are grateful for this school in our lives. The only weaknesses were the lack of serious foreign language instruction in middle school & the English writing program in & 7th & 8th grade after our daughter had graduated. Overall, it was a great experience & we would recommend this school highly.

We could not be more happier with avcs. It is a wonderful school to send out children every day and the environment is full of love and happiness. We have nothing but good things to say about our school. If you are looking to tour do so on a Friday and experience chapel!!

This school is TRULY a Christ centered school. I have witness the amazing grace of God here especially in the last two weeks. The school, the parents, the staff, the pastors, and students have shown an amazing outpouring of love for those in need. This is what a Christian School is all about. My children have been going here for the past eight years and I'm so honored to be part of this Christian community.
