I really like the smaller classroom sizes at Valley. I think it is wonderful that this provides more individualized attention from teacher to student.

My children graduated from this excellent school. My children were fully prepared for college and received multiple scholarships. The spiritual atmosphere is very strong and healthy. The Word of God is the basis of their mission. The fully accredited academic program is also very strong. The church, pastors, administration and staff are godly and highly qualified. I appreciate the genuine godly mentoring and Christian partnership of this school.

VFCA has a community that is unequaled at any school I've seen. It's warm, and most parents know each other by name as well. We attend field trips together, go to school performances and even call when someone has forgotten a book or needs help for a test.

RUN FAR FAR AWAY! A private school affiliated with a sole church. Members that go to the church are the same that run the school. Money church... money school?? Conflict of interest? I think so....RUN.

I praise God for leading us to VFCA when my school search began. My little adopted son has been there for 4 years & there is not one thing about the school that I would change. We have had 4 SUPER teachers, great curriculum, Godly staff, etc. My special thanks to each one affiliated with VFCA for their concern for our children & their efforts to raise godly leaders. I recommend this school highly and hope to be a part of it until my child graduates from high school.

My son went to this school for two years. The teachers were excellent. The academics were great and the administrator was very professional. I only had one problem with this school and I tried to overlook it, but I just couldn't. My son was very interested in sports. He played soccer both years. The problem is there are a lot of the same family members involved in this school. There was an incident on the soccer field where the referee was the son of the lady who is the Soccer coordinator. Her nephew was on the other team. My son's team was winning. The referee called a fowl on my son. My son said something to one of his team members and through his hands in the air. The boy on the other team (who was the referee's nephew) got to kick a goal unopposed. The other team then pulled ahead of my son's team. My husband and I didn't realize what had happened until we got home. I would have liked for my son to have stayed in this school, however, I am afraid he would not be given a fair chance in sports and possibly in the classroom. Several of the teachers have children or nephews enrolled.

VFCA is an amazing school that provides an excellent learning experience while equipping kids to become Godly leaders! VFCA offers a hot lunch program with kitchen staff, multiple extracurricular activities including soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, track and field, science and spanish clubs, music lessons, and more! There is not a better private, Christian school in the area!

Best Christain school in AL!!! My son attended VFCA two yrs and then we moved out of the state. He has attended several private schools since then and none of the these schools compared to VFCA! The staff at VFCA is awesome. Very loving and caring teachers who love the Lord and practice what they teach!! And as of this year, they accept children from 6wks old -12th grade! In addtion, they have a culinary minister who prepares hot lunches every day!

I have two children at Valley Fellowship Christian Academy and I am extremely pleased with their educational experience. The school has partnered with me and I have been blessed by the top-notch staff and administration. The curriculum is academically strong and the environment fosters true spiritual growth. My children love the chapel services and Bible classes and the many extra curricular activites. My children play on soccer, basketball, and volleyball teams (but more athletics are available). My children had greatly enjoyed Alabama Pray Group, the Science Club, and several mission trip opportunities. VFCA has been fully accredited for many years by both SACS and ICAA. VFCA was honored as the ICAA/ORUEF 2009 School of the Year and the administrator Patti Simon was also awarded the Administrator of the Year Award for 1009.

I had a child at Valley Fellowship and I was very dissapointed. The teaching staff was excellent, however, administration was below average in how the dealt with issues and concerns. No hot lunches, No gym, No extra curricular activities. It was not the best experience.

I have two sons who have gone to Valley Fellowship Christian Academy from K3 - 12th grade. Very strong Christian principles and great education. They have basketball, soccer and volleyball. They host mission trips to D.C. and other countries like Guatemala. We love this school.

I have three students currently at this school. My oldest child is now in his fourteenth year at this school (he started in K3). This school offers a quality education, concentrating on college prep classes. It has a strong faith base and believes in teaching the whole child, mind, body and spirit. Its goal is to produce quality students who will fulfill quality positions in life. Its focus is on training godly leaders. The standard of this school is excellence. They offer much guidance along the way. Safety and security are priorities. Each student is considered to be of great value to the student body.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
