Special Services Fee – $500
Special Services are for students who need classroom accommodations beyond our general classroom instruction. This includes but is not limited to those with a 504 plan, McKay Scholarship, Gardiner Scholarship or those identified with a medical diagnosis needing additional support by the teachers, nurse and support staff. If your student has an "IEP, 501, 504 or Gardiner plan", we will ask you to provide a copy of their current plan as well as the past 2 years of report cards and any testing results. This will enable the leadership team to determine the level of support required for your child’s success. Please contact us before you apply, so the administration can review and determine whether or not VCA can accommodate your child’s needs. We enroll a limited number of students per grade level with minor disabilities in order to maintain a balance of academic and behavioral needs within the classroom. Our classroom ratio is approximately 1 teacher to 22 students, therefore, our resources are limited.
Ignitia Credit Recovery
$200 per course. Students who need to repeat a course may do so through Ignitia.

In the case of a family with multiple children, only the full tuition child is eligible for the tithing discount.

The amount of the discount may vary depending upon the amount of any scholarship that is awarded to the student.
In no case will the sum of a student’s scholarship, plus any discount received, exceed the sum of a student’s annual tuition plus any includable fees.
Includable fees are fees that are allowed to be paid by the scholarship funds, as defined by the scholarship directive. Any VCA preschool sibling will receive a 10% discount off their lowest weekly rate.

We are excited to offer morning and afternoon KidZone for all Victory Christian Academy students (Kindergarten–12th grade.) Please download and complete form below and return it to the VCA office.

Also, if students remain on campus after 3:15 p.m., they will be checked into the KidZone program. Middle and high School students who participate in a sport are required to report to Study Hall, at no charge, until 4 p.m., or the beginning of their practice time, whichever comes first. At the conclusion of practice, their coach will check them into KidZone until a parent is available to pick them up. Parent/Guardians are required to sign students out of KidZone. After 3:15 p.m., the south covered (Preschool) entrance must be used to pick up students.
