As a parent , I am shocked at the previous post. Both of my children have attended VCA since Kindergarten and are now in middle school and high school. My daughter is one who is very athletic and did not make the volleyball team the first year she was eligible, but she decided to put her efforts into cross country and has made all-conference every year. VCA tries to include every student and family in everything they do. VCA has a large military population and the goal is always to support those who are serving our county. VCA offers many academic as well as extra-curricular programs. They offer AG, Honors and AP classes as well as Academic Enrichment for the students who may need extra support. My children have been involved in all of these programs. VCA is not perfect, but the goal is to always grow spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially. It is a wonderful school and choosing VCA provides the pathway for the future success of your children. You and your children will be blessed by coming to this school.
Perhaps if your child starts Pre K and stays at this school, it may be a decent school but this is not the case for new students who are in the middle and high school levels. New parents should be warned. The building is nice and the teachers appear pleasant however this school has a closed nit group. If you think you re tween/teen child can come to VCA and join clubs, play sports, be active think again! Many teachers and coaches are the parents of the kids who get picked for teams or are on student council, it s just that simple. Military families who are here for a few years should keep looking. Unfortunately, I didn t know anyone here and had to find this our the hard way. After my kids tried out for several teams and activities and witnessed the same group of kids getting picked over and over, they got discouraged. I did my best to keep them active with the local theater and dance studio and am so glad the year is over. We are not re-enrolling.
Could not ask for a better environment for my children than what we have experienced at Village Christian Academy! The staff continues to amaze me with their genuine love and concern for the students both academically and spiritually. The curriculum is appropriately challenging and up to date technology is used regularly in the classroom. Would recommend this school to anyone.
My daughters started VCA in Kindergarten and my oldest is a Senior. I have been very pleased with the school, teachers, and administration. My daughter was accepted into all three colleges she applied for and feels prepared for college. I would recommend this school to all of my friends.
We have 3 children at Village Christian Academy and have attended since 2005. We could not be happier. I feel that our children are receiving an excellent education and would be prepared for anything they might choose to do after high school. The teachers and staff are extremely caring and go above and beyond daily for our children. I especially am appreciative of the consistency of our family's beliefs with what is taught in the classroom. I also like the fact administration seems committed to constantly analyzing and adapting programs to students' needs. Great school!!!
Village Christian Academy has the best teachers and staff. I applaud them for the dedication to the spiritual, academic, and social development of the students. Parent support is awesome and all work as a team to provide the best for the children. GREAT SCHOOL.
My 5th and 3rd graders have been attending VCA since kindergarten, and we couldn't be happier. They have been challenged academically, encouraged spiritually, and blossomed socially due to their teachers, their peers, and the environment. The teachers are professionals who are able to see their students as individuals, teach to their levels and show personal attention to them. I truly appreciate this place and the people.
My daughter attended the high school for 4 years. The teachers welcomed her. They are kind and compassionate, truly caring about her academic, as well as her spiritual growth. VCA offers standard, honors, and AP classes, and all are challenging. High expectations for behavior and academics!
Congratulations to Village Christian Academy for being voted best Elementary School by the Greatest Around Fayetteville! Congratulations also to Mrs. Brenda Jernigan voted best Elementary Teacher, Mrs. Melissa Stone, Elementary Teacher, and Mrs. Theresa Clark voted best Elementary Principal.
All three of my children graduated from Village Christian Academy. My children have been gifted in different areas, and VCA allowed them to shine in their own area. They all were able to go to their top college choice, and because of the wide range of AP classes available received college credit to help allay costs and time required to graduate! Just to encourage parents who worry that a "smaller" school might hinder their college entry chances, here are some of the schools my children were accepted into: Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, Appalachian State University, University of Georgia, UNC-Wilmington, Western Carolina. God Bless you in your search to find the right education choice for your child/children.
