Excellent school, excellent teachers! The teachers truly love and care for the students. Both my boys love going to school and I love that they are getting a great education. Smaller class sizes give the students a lot of individual attention.

My son has attended VCCA for 4 years, his SATs are all in the 90th percentile. The traditional core studies are supported with modern teaching and attention. The classes are small and you cannot escape individual attention even if you do not need it. Beyond teaching, the teachers care for your child and show intrest in thier intrests. And above all they teach with Christian values and respect the opinons and desires of the parent. The education and peace of mind worth every penny!

While this is a small school, what has impressed me the most is not only are my children loved and well cared for, but have been challenged academically. The school is a community of Christian educators who strive to foster intellectual curiousity and a love of learning and sharing of that learning with others. Not fancy, but focus on a classical model has prepared our children exceptionally well for their education beyond VCCA.

Amazing school with teachers and parents that care! Valley Classical provides an excellent setting for a Christian worldview education. A strong core curriculum that provides a foundation for lifelong learning. The faculty is amazing, the possess very strong technical skills, but more important are passionate about providing the best education possible for our children--THEY CARE! Our children have attended Valley for several years and we could not be happier. Students consistently score higher than average on standardized tests. The curriculum includes the basics and when combined with Latin, Logic, Art, and Music the students receive a complete education.

Small, but mighty!! That is Valley Classical Christian Academy. Our daughter has attended this school for 8 years and we cannot say enough about the dedication of the teachers to the children and families they serve. The education is academically challenging, while sprinkled with love and care, with some fun thrown in also! VCCA is truly a community filled with love and care for students and families. We have been truly blessed and amazed for 8 years.

VCCA achieves excellent results by focusing on the basics: grammar, literature, writing, history, geography, mathematics, logic, science, music, art, drama, PE. There are no distractions, the classes are small and the students and teachers are serious about learning. Add to this a loving community and kind discipline and you have the educational formula that has proven successful over the years. We are very happy with this school.

VCCA is small but beautiful. I have just finished reading John Mighton s book The Myth of Ability and am convinced more than ever that small loving learning settings are the best way to advance our children. . John developed the highly acclaimed JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Mathematical Prodigies) program, which embraces the philosophy that children flourish academically with attention, love and structure. Using this program John and his volunteers have successfully nurtured thousands of the most under achieving inner city math students into the highest performers. It s heart arming to see the positive effect of good teaching and just how even the most neglected students can thrive. I highly recommend his book ... and small loving schools.

VCCA is a small school with very strong academics and high scores on the Stanford 10. The teachers are dedicated with excellent experience and training. Art, music and Latin are integral to the curriculum. The principle is an outstanding academic who teaches Latin, Math, and Logic. Graduates go on to schools such as Brophy, Phoenix Country Day, and Xavier.

This is an amazing school. The classes are very small, and the education is top-notch. They have art, music and P.E. like other schools, but they also have Latin and Logic. The people are warm and friendly, VCCA is a family.

This is an amazing community school with a strong education. The class sizes are quite small and it is the best bargain in the Central Corridor. The new facility is wonderful and, our kids are so happy to be attending VCCA.

I love this school and I can't imagine my children going anywhere else. The class size is small and children are given the individual attention that they need to suceed. Kids are taught at an accelerated pace and are ahead of public schools. The music and art programs are amazing.

Valley classical is a wonderful school. My daughter started in Aug. 2007 as a preschooler, and she has excelled in every area, acedemically, emotionally and religiously. The curriculum is based on truly advancing your child and teaching christian values which are missing today in public schools. VCCS is moving this year, and my daughter will not be able to continue there, but we feel truly blessed that she was able to attend this school year. Wendy F.

This is a school that focuses on classical educationl. It teaches Latin to all age groups. It is primarily racially white. It has small class sizes of 6-12 students. It has a new principal this year. It has religion classes that confirm to evangelical Christian beliefs. Not a lot of outside help if your child learns in a non-tradtional manner. Very strict standards for discipline and study. The person who conceptualized this school is no longer there, so I don't know what it will look like in the future. It is Pre-K through 8th grade. Students must wear uniforms.

I can whole-heartedly recommend VCCS. I have a daughter in Kindergarten, and a son in their preschool. This school does a great job in all areas of education. I have been so impressed with what they are teaching at the Kindergarten level. Part of the 'Classical education' curriculum includes incorporating Latin in their studies, even at the Kindergarten level. My daughter is doing work I believe to be far beyond what the public schools have to offer. She is reading, doing addition and subtraction, computer, music, Spanish, art. Parent involvement is excellent there. It's evident at every level, every function. I like the structure: they wear uniforms, the staff know the children and parents very well, they will not sacrifice the learning of many children due to disruptive behavior of 1 or 2. Most importantly, everything they do focuses on Christian life,honoring the Lord in ALL you do!

I think that Valley Cathedral Christian is a great school. My child has learned so much, I believe that he is one full year ahead in the program that he is learning. He is now in Kindergarten, but he is learning 1st grade stuff. The whole staff is wonderful and very loving. I am very glad that he has an opportunity to learn about God. He is too young to go to church, therefore the lessons that he has in his classroom more than make up for what he might gain by attending church. I just think that the whole program is great.

VCCS has been an awesome school choice for us! I have always felt that the safety was never a problem. Everyone---parents, teachers etc. are all involved in the training and teaching of your child. It is a very loving environment.

I love this school. The academics are great and the children learn proper behaviour. The quality of education here is far superior to that of the public schools in the area. My children also love their school. A great plus in the Arizona desert is that the playground is covered. I highly recommend this school.
