Victory Christian Academy (VCA) is located in Indianola, IA. VCA is known for high standards, motivated students, and caring teachers. The curriculum is at least one grade level above what you would find in most public schools today. Significantly more time per day is spent in reading, writing, and doing math. VCA has such a positive, professional, and spiritual climate. Our 3 boys have been there from preschool to 2nd grade. My husband and I are amazed on a daily basis how much they learn and bring home. I am a school psychologist and analyzed VCA's Iowa Test of Basic Skills by grade level during the 2008-2009 school year. In short, students were testing one to three grade levels above the grade they were enrolled in. Most students were scoring at the 80th percentile and above on the ITBS composite which is significantly above grade level. Check out VCA on Facebook!

I could not be more satisfied with every aspect of education at VCA. I have two children attending. They come home singing songs about Jesus and reciting scripture. I'm also amazed at their reading progress! The environment is secure, loving, structured, and every student who walks through the front doors is valued and accepted. No student is just another number! I love VCA! Thank you to all the staff and God who create this wonderful learning experience.

When high standards are set, children rise to them. This is exactly what happens at Victory. I am amazed by the amount of progress my child has made with reading. The Bekka reading program is top notch. Also noteworthy is the positive atmosphere children learn in - traditional Christian values, small class size and committed teachers.

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.
