I completely agree with the previous review. My daughter had a great year at VAA and even during COVID closure, VAA teachers did an amazing job teaching online, through Zoom, explaining new material, answering questions, keeping students occupied. Yes, we as parents, had an incredible load of work to keep up with, but for our kids' academic advancement it was totally worth it! My daughter finished this year strong, and I thank VAA administration and teaching team for that! Thank you for putting your heads together and coming up with a great plan in such a short time! We love you and we can't wait to be back for another great year! Have a great summer!

I would like to take a moment to speak about the entire staff at VAA. I am thoroughly impressed with the level of professionalism, dedication, and love they express in their jobs. It is very clear the level of love they all have for their jobs and the students that attend the school. I spent the first half of my education in the public school system and the last half in private school so I have had the experience of both even though if was decades ago. Neither of those experiences come close to what I see in VAA. When COVID-19 struck, the school was unexpectedly closed for the safety of the faculty and students. What the staff of VAA were capable of pulling together with no foreknowledge over the course of a three-day weekend was nothing short of miraculous and has truly been exciting, remarkable, and impressive to witness. My children's education has not skipped a beat. The transition from a traditional classroom environment to a fully virtual learning environment was nearly seamless. VAA has continued to expand their capabilities and provide more and more to their virtual educational repertoire. This school has truly been a blessing from the Lord for our family. I feel extremely blessed to have been lead to the VAA school and Community Church.
