Application, Testing, and Registration Fees
A non-refundable $100.00 application fee/testing fee will be charged for each child that you apply for enrollment at VCA. Upon acceptance, a $60.00 registration fee must be paid to complete the enrollment process for each child. This fee must be paid at the time of acceptance at the family interview.
K-12 Matriculation Fee – $400
Matriculation Fees are due upon acceptance. This non-refundable fee assists with school owned and consumable textbooks, test materials, Renweb Parent Alert, and some classroom supplies.
Special Services Fee – $750
Special services are for students who need classroom accommodations beyond our general classroom instruction. This includes but 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 child has an IEP or a 504 plan, we will ask you to provide a copy of their current plan 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. Because our class ratio is approximately 1 teacher to 18 students in kindergarten, our resources are limited.

Financial Aid (K-12 Only)
Financial Assistance may be awarded to families meeting specific requirements. Currently, VCA participates in three financial assistance programs; Step Up For Students, FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition), and the MacKay Scholarship Program. Click on the link below for more information and qualification requirements for these programs.
A multi-child discount is available to families with more than one child who attend VCA in PK 2 through 12th grades. Full tuition will be paid for the oldest child, the second child will receive a discount of 15%, and all other children will receive a discount of up to 25%. 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.
After School Care Program – “KidZone”
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. All students must be supervised by a VCA staff member at all times. If students are on the VCA campus prior to 7:30 a.m. and are not supervised by a VCA staff member, they will be checked into the morning KidZone program and your account will be charged accordingly. 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.
- Morning KidZone is provided from 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. at $30.00 per month or $8.00 per day.
- Afternoon KidZone is provided from 2:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at $168.00 per month.

- It is the parent’s responsibility to update the student’s enrollment on the Enrollment Form when attendance changes or discontinues.
- Late pick-ups after 6:00 p.m. will result in a $1.00 per minute fee that must be paid using a payment envelope at time of pick up or time of drop off the next school day.
