My son's teacher is fantastic ... the best and this comes from a father who has a high standard in education.

Our son is in 1st grade this year. We could not ask for a better teacher then his. It is great to see your child develope and grow, From what I see this school's #1 focus is my sons education. The teacher keeps us up to date with weekly reports and daily updates if needed. Our kids will continue to attend VCA as long as we live in Roswell.

Excellent instruction by their teachers, my grandkids read at a much higher level during Sunday School class than do public school educated kids their same age. It's amazing! Joni Sterrett

I was a former student at Valley and loved the teachers and the years I spent there.

I am a graduate of VCA and I am not proud of it. I attended VCA the first year that it was established. It was not a good school then, and it is not a good school now. The students are not disciplined and are not taught to respect fellow students or teachers. The education received is mediocre. Much more imphasis is placed on the football team than on getting a higher education. Gateway Christian School has a much better education program and discipline is highly important. VCA is, simply put, a joke of a school.

VCA is doing much to improve the quality of instruction. The upper level classes offered at VCA are now top notch. There are now 4 Advance Placement classes offered at VCA (AP English, AP Calculus, AP Physics, and AP Biology). As a teacher, I would put my Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus students up against any others in the state.

Valley Christian Academy is Roswell's only interdenominational Christian school. It provides its students solid growth both spiritually and academically and offers a full array of extracurricular activities. On national tests students typically score two grades above the public schools. It is a great school to have your child attend with a high level of parent involvement and a strong teaching staff.

VCA is not a good school to send your child. The only plus VCA has to offer is a wonderful football team and coaching staff.

Valley Christian Academy, an interdenominational Christian school, offers an excellent college prep program in a Christian atmosphere for students in grades 1-12. Class sizes are limited. Our Lions football team is ranked #1 in Texas Christian Athletic League and #5 in the country for 6 man football this year. We offer art, chorus, MathCounts, and Bible Quiz opportunities. Other sports offered are volleyball, basketball,golf, and tennis. We are accredited through ACTS and the State of New Mexico. Our active Parent Teacher Organization actively plans activities to involve VCA with the local community of Roswell. We encourage parent participation on all levels.

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.
