VCA has been educating children since 1979. The school campus is practically "across the street" from the old Geauga Lake Amusement Park in Aurora, Ohio. To best meet the needs of our students, we are really two schools within one-- an Elementary for grades PK-5, and a Middle School for grades 6-8. We have one class of each grade, and the larger Elementary classes have Teacher Aides.
Mission: VCA exists to build a godly foundation in our students through Christ-centered education in cooperation with the Christian home and church so that our students know, love, and obey Jesus Christ.
Vision: Trusting in God’s strength and the Holy Spirit’s direction, Valley Christian Academy will be the Christian school of choice where the impact of our caring staff and quality programming will equip and inspire students to live a lifestyle of passionate discipleship. Our students will be academically and spiritually prepared to engage the culture by articulating and defending a biblical worldview.
We take very seriously what sets us apart from other forms of schooling-- every area of VCA remains Christ-centered: our curriculum, our activities, our faculty and staff, our purpose and the even the atmosphere of the school.
Core Values: We have chosen six key areas which serve as pillars for all of our efforts at Valley Christian Academy. We use our school mascot, the eagle, to remember them:
Each of these descriptors is based upon God's Word and we use them as the standards to measure our success.
Statement of Philosophy and Purpose: Valley Christian Academy exists as an extension of the Christian home and of the church to fulfill God's commands to raise children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4), and to teach His Word diligently unto our children (Deuteronomy 6:5-7). Our foundation rests upon acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and the Bible as the Word of God--the final authority in truth and practice. We strive to help each child grow spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially through the dedication of teachers, administrators, and staff who love the Lord and desire to serve Him through the educational process. We rely on parents to help us through their prayer, their cooperation, and their active involvement in the life of this school. Therefore, we believe that the Bible clearly gives the responsibility of training children to parents. Valley Christian Academy exists to help parents fulfill this biblical responsibility. The school does not replace the home. The school attempts to support the home by reinforcing the biblical concepts and values taught at home and church. Christian education involves the whole person, so it is desirable that all elements which bear on the education of a child can be consistent and properly reinforce one another. In view of this, if the child's Christian school education is to be as effective as possible, it must be supported by a Christian home and a Christian church. All three should work together in a complementary fashion. Therefore, it is necessary that all the parents support the philosophy and academic program of the school.
Accreditation: The school is chartered by the State of Ohio and in 2004 received an additional accreditation from ACSI (the Association of Christian Schools International).
