VCA’s R3 program was launched in middle school in 2014. The program was so popular and successful that in the fall of 2018, the program was adopted throughout the entire school. The R3 program creates a positive culture that emphasizes being Respectful, Responsible, and Relational. This program positively reinforces behavior in all grades, and also encourages discipleship by connecting older students with younger students.
Preschool and Lower School Chapel
Preschool and lower school chapel services include worship and a monthly character trait which is reinforced in the classroom. Chapels also include a time of recognizing students who have demonstrated the character trait as identified by their classroom teachers.
Middle and High School Chapel
The goal of chapel for upper school chapel is to transform the hearts and minds of students through praise and worship as they draw closer to Christ and grow deeper in His Word. VCA’s Praise Team provides students with the opportunity to develop their God-given talents, gifts, and abilities as worship leaders. Guest speakers are often brought in to share as well.
Students begin participating in service and ministry opportunities as early as preschool, with the aim to grow in compassion while serving others and model Jesus in the surrounding community. With service projects ranging from assisting the elderly, writing letters and sending treats to our troops overseas, collecting goods for North Fulton Community Charities, and packing and collecting boxes for Operation Christmas Child, there is always an opportunity for our students to be the hands and feet of Jesus in and around the world.
