School Notes

  • Veritas Christian Academy opened in 1998 as First Christian School, a ministry of First Christian Church of Napa. When the school began in 1998 it started with preschool ages 18 months through 5 years old and added a grade each year until reaching 8th grade in 2008. In July 2018, the church blessed the school into becoming a multi campus independent Christian school supported by a network of local Christian churches. The preschool through 5th grades remain on the First Christian Church campus, referred to as the South Campus and the middle school, 6th-8th grades, moved to the Grace Church Campus, referred to as the North Campus. A 501(c)(3) corporation was opened to manage all business operations related to the school. This corporation is named Napa Valley Christian Education Group.VCA is non-denominational in scope, but Biblical in authority. We rely on the Word of God as our source for truth and inspiration. All curricular and co-curricular programs are Biblically integrated to provide the students with a solid foundation of truth through the Word of God.
