Valley Christian Academy Photo #3 - One of our students sharing their 4th grade Simple Machine Project.
Valley Christian Academy Photo #7 - Kindergarten Graduation, such a wonderful thing to see the Hand of God in lives so young.
Valley Christian Academy Photo #8 - Studnets acting out the play "Unfrozen". The arts are a huge part of our school and are very important to the well rounded education of any child.
- Valley Christian Academy offers classes for Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grades.
- Our purpose is to provide the best education and creative opportunities possible for each child in a Christ-centered environment.
- Our teachers are carefully selected and our classes have a low student/teacher ratio with teachers' assistants.
- We provide a quality program that is both challenging and stimulating and is designed to give the students opportunity to broaden their growth and learning experiences while meeting the needs of the whole child - spiritual, mental and physical.
- Even though Valley Christian Academy is a small private school they still offer many outside of school field trips to increase learning and exposure to other sources of knowledge and information.

- Our school is a place for students not only to grow academically but to grow in the Lord as well. We stress how God is in everything, from Science and Math, to Reading and Literature. We have a strong belief that in all that we do God needs to be the center. We make it a point to pass this along to our students on a daily basis so that when they leave VCA they will have a firm understanding of how God is truely is a part of all that they do.

My daughter attended this school from PreK through Eighth Grade and my son has attended PreK to Seventh (so far). I have watched them grow academically, spiritually, and in their social interaction. VCA has equipped my children for success in life.

I thank God for the opportunity to have my daughter at VCA, she always struggled at the public school system, yet in her first year at VCA, my daughter has improved so much that she enjoys going to school now. It's not just an overall improvement in the academic area, but particularly in her ability to memorize scripture. One of my daughters teachers even prays for each empty chair before the students arrive so they may be bless that day, Wow! VCA, keep up the good work, stay bless. Sergio

Hmmm! I think if I could give this school 6 stars rather than 5, then that's what I would give it. Hello, My daughter attends Valley Christian Academy and has been, since September 2014. She is in the preschool program there and even though she has only attended a short time, I cannot begin to tell all, how much she has grown. Mrs. Siqueros and Mrs. Cruz are what you call ABSOLUTE AMAZING Educators. They have taught my child not only the basics, which all schools must but I would say of a higher learning. She is not yet 4 and can write her name, identify all her letters, shapes and can not only count to 100 but can also identify her numbers as well. She is learning so much about God that I am so amazed. I''m am very excited to watch my child grow spiritually. As a new Christ follower or a beginner, I cannot teach my child about God as I am still learning myself. At VCA, they are taking my child on a spiritual journey that is such a beautiful experience that I cannot take her to. These Educators are here to teach our children and they by far give 110% of their time.At VCA the staff are very friendly and are very knowledgeable of the Lord. I can honestly say that I am VERY proud and VERY pleased with Valley Christian Academy. My daughter comes home telling me what she has learned about God. They just celebrated christmas by having a Birthday party for Jesus. How beautiful is that? My daughter asked me to buy Jesus a birthday cake for our home. As a new tradition, that's what we will start doing. Before I close, cause I can go on and on about VCA I would like to share something the principal at VCA said to the parents at orientation. He said "Do not give your children to the world to raise, you raise your children"! Those words stick in my mind, as I will never forget those words. It is so true! God commands us to raise our children to learn about him and to love him. We all have choices on how we want to raise our children. Let's do it God's way! I will not talk down on any public school here in Moreno Valley, as I know all our teachers work very hard. I will highly recommend Valley Christian Academy because it is a place of higher learning and most important of all its a place where your children will be taken on the most beautiful spiritual journey and that is a journey that will help lead your child closer to God and will instill great knowledge of what we need to lead us back to our God.

I wanted my daughter who is now 4 to attend a structured preschool and once we took a tour of the school, my husband and I knew this was the place for her. She LOVES coming to school. She always talks to me about what she learned. She loves her teachers, Mrs. Cruz & Mrs. Siquieros, and they are very friendly teachers.

We love that it is very Christ centered! She has to memorize a bible verse weekly which helps me make sure she's growing spiritually. I highly recommend this school to other parents!

I am a single mother and enrolled my daughter, who is in the 7th grade just afterThanksgiving week. Though it was hectic getting everything ready for her to enter, the administrative staff was wonderful (courteous, efficient and caring). My daughter now looks forward to going to school each morning. She likes the school and loves her teachers.
