Our 100,000 square foot facility houses 32 classrooms including two science labs, a digital resource lab, as well as an 800 seat main auditorium, 4 multipurpose multi-media activity rooms, cafeteria, and administrative offices.
Virginia Academy Photo #2 - Our committed Christian staff not only loves education, but loves seeing children and youth become all they can be even more. All teachers are degreed and must obtain continuing education credits each year. You simply will not find a staff that will love and care for your student more than us.
Virginia Academy Photo #3 - Our academic preschool program provides quality care with the best school preparation around. Students begin the basics of reading as early as age 2 and are reading short sentences by age 4, while receiving art and music enrichment to include a full-stage performance in the spring.
Virginia Academy Photo #4 - In kindergarten through 5th grade, students master the basics of reading,writing and arithmetic, as they develop a love for learning. There's a variety of enrichment (PE, world language studies, computers, music, and performing and visual art) for a very well rounded learning experience. Students may participate in SCA, NEHS, and all students participate in one full stage performance each year.
Virginia Academy Photo #5 - 6th - 8th grade students also participate in our mentoring (advisory) program; learning valuable life skills. They have the opportunity to develop their unique gifts in leadership (SCA & NJHS), interscholastic athletics, music, and visual and performing arts through elective classes, clubs, and free after school activities.

Students host our annual leadership conference and participate in key roles for chapel as well as perform many hours of community service through student led and school initiatives.
Virginia Academy Photo #9 - All students are introduced to the truth and love of God through life transforming and character building Bible classes, chapels, and mentoring. At every level, God's Word is taught and modeled; helping students to develop a genuine love for God and a desire and ability to love and serve people.

  • We want our students to become productive citizens with the ability to lead and serve others well. Scholarship Academic excellence is a priority.
  • Beginning with preschool, students are taught reading by a superior phonetic approach, which not only provides a foundation for comprehension but also critical thinking skills.
  • We want our students not only to be great thinkers and problem solvers, but also equipped to apply their learning to everyday life and make use of the latest technology. All students are challenged to excel at their highest level possible while also being given needed support to overcome learning deficiencies and differences. Purpose It is our firm belief that every child is endowed with unique ability and purpose.
  • Our job is to help them discover them both.
  • Therefore, we seek to provide a variety of opportunities for each child to find his/her area of greatness that by the time they leave Virginia Academy, they are well on their way to achieving their God-given purpose.
