About Victory Christian Academy

Our Mission

Victory Christian Academy, a ministry of Victory Baptist Church, exists to challenge students to become well-balanced, Christ-like persons by educating in the mental, physical, social, and spiritual realms.

Our Core Principles

Biblical, Christ-Centered Worldview

God’s Word is the center of all at Victory. In addition to Bible classes and weekly chapel services, Biblical truths are incorporated into all subject areas and extracurricular activities.


Caring, Qualified Teachers

Victory Christian Academy is blessed to have faculty members who truly care for the individual needs of students. Teachers at VCA demonstrate their qualifications with degree(s) in their fields of teaching as well as certification through The American Association of Christian Schools.

Strong Academic Curriculum

Students at Victory are taught using the nationally acclaimed  Abeka and Bob Jones curriculum. All courses in the high school of VCA are taught on the college preparatory level, however; students are also given the opportunity to take honors level courses and even dual enrollment courses through various college partnerships. Curriculum is not limited to a textbook, but it is rather the student’s overall learning experience including extra-curricular activities such as: fine arts, and an athletic program.


Well-Rounded Education

In addition to a high focus on academics VCA also focuses on the development of talents and skills that can be used in athletics, fine arts, and other opportunities through community service. Our desire is to see graduates use their talents to serve God whether for full-time Christian service or serving in the public sector.
