Valley Fellowship Christian Academy is a Christ-centered, academically focused school.
Our school was founded in 1987.  We have been greatly blessed with excellent teachers and an extraordinary student body.
Our program is integrated with the Biblical standard of educating the "whole student"; mind, body and spirit. Academic excellence, spiritual awareness, physical soundness combine together to form the basis of our program.
VFCA provides training for children in Biblical values, leadership, academic preparedness and social responsibility. Our students are encouraged to exercise confidence in their abilities to lead and make decisions. Students are given opportunities to come to know God and make Him known in the Tennessee Valley and around the world. Through public awareness, our students are learning to take responsibility for their local community. Globally, our students are making a difference as they work to improve the physical and spiritual lives of people in Guatemala, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Asia, and numerous countries in Africa.

VFCA has done a fantastic job with my 2 children. They are learning and being spiritually enriched daily. The administration truly cares and gets to know each one of their students. It is a safe a loving place where I don't have to worry about my children. There's a real partnership between parent/teacher/administrator as you tackle challenges together. You can't find anything better in Huntsville!

I have been continually impressed at Valley Fellowships commitment to families and children who desire a Christian education. We have been particularly blessed in their partnership with us as we have a very strong-willed son who has ADHD and a learning disorder called dysgraphia. The staff has been amazing and dedicated to helping him. We have seen dramatic improvements in him since he joined the school in K5. He will be going into 2nd grade and now, my husband (who didn't want to pay for a Christian education at first) and I are committed to remaining with Valley for the long haul. Our kids deserve it.
