I am so thankful to say that my own children attended SVCA, and now my grandchildren are enrolled! Shenandoah Valley Christian Academy has been a great blessing to our entire family for many years. The new administration has helped to improve the quality of education even more.
Julie Curry is the new superintendent at SVCA. She is sacrificially sharing her many years of experience as an educator and administrator in the public school system (elementary through college). Her leadership has taken SVCA to the next level in quality education. Thank you, Mrs. Curry!
Having pre-kindergarten through grade 12 in one school creates a family atmosphere where older students watch out for younger students. Students in the lower grades look up to the high school students like older siblings. Students with special needs are respected and encouraged.
I want to thank my daughter Carianne Combs. She is an alumnus of SVCA and now has her own kids, my beautiful grandchildren, enrolled. Cari also teacher at SVCA now and works very hard with the Parent-Teacher Organization. I'm proud of her and thankful for our school. Thirty-nine years! Go Patriots!
This school is full of cliques, students and staff alike. I find it funny how the only 2 good comments on here were posted within one day of each other, and one of them is posted twice. The church and the school both are unfortunately quite a mess. Between both of my children we have 7 years invested. I was very happy to be able to walk away from such a toxic environment. So much is hidden here, you will never know the whole truth.
While there is no such thing as a 'perfect' school, I cannot imagine sending my son anyplace other than SVCA. My son is going into the 7th grade and started here in Kindergarten. The school not only excels at building up students academically but spiritually and personally as well. Parent involvement could be better but the teachers, staff and administration are all top notch.
We have found SVCA to be a strong Biblically based school. The school strives to have a positive influence on our world by developing students whose actions authentically reveal the character of Christ by partnering with families to spiritually, academically, physically, and socially educate their children in a program of intentional excellence. (Luke 2:52) The school has wonderful qualified teachers who teach because it is their passion. The students are caring and supportive to one another and a joy to be around. We have two children in this school and they have flourished and grown both spiritually and academically while being there. We love that they are being taught in a safe, loving environment and that the Christian values we teach at home are also being reinforced in the school. The teachers always give the students the attention they need and the students love them for it. It s an atmosphere of respect and encouragement. SVCA is a school with a family-like environment that I would strongly recommend.
