Q. Is VCA a covenant Christian school?
VCA defines covenant Christian school as a community of like-minded families. A like-minded family is where one parent of our K-8th grade students has a personal relationship with Jesus. For high school, at least one parent or the student has a personal relationship with Jesus. By this definition, VCA is a covenant Christian school.
