Sending my son to this school has been a life-changing event. He has learned discipline, respect, values and ethics- while receiving a great education. He is surrounded by strong role models who are passionate about what they do. There is a new leadership team in place that has revitalized the character and quality of this school. VFMAC is on the rise!
