Frequently Asked Questions
Victory Christian Academy is an educational ministry of Victory Baptist Church for students Kindergarten through twelfth grade.
Victory Christian Academy is a parent-oriented institution. We realize that parenthood is a God-given responsibility, and, as such, it is our responsibility to uphold the authority, guidance, love, and discipline of the parents. In this respect, Victory Christian Academy functions as an extension of the parents by strengthening and making concrete the principles begun in the home.
Reasons why we have a Christian School:
* To provide a Christ-centered education
* To excel in academic standards
* To develop high spiritual and moral standards
* To protect young people from the pressures of the world
The main objectives of Victory Christian Academy are:
* To build character into the lives of the students so that they learn to do right by reflex
* To help each student come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ
* To help each student learn to apply the Bible to their daily lives
* To encourage each student to develop his God-given gifts and abilities so as to be used most effectively in service to Christ
In grades Kindergarten through sixth a traditional curriculum, called A Beka Book (developed by Pensacola Christian College), is used. The curriculum uses textbooks that stress academic achievement while including high moral and spiritual values. Positive Action for Christ is used for Bible class.
In grades seven through twelve use A Beka Book as well. However, they do not have a traditional classroom setting. Instead they will be learning thorough the A Beka Book online streaming classes. Each student will watch videos from an actual classroom at Pensacola Christian Academy and will learn from some of the best-trained Christian school teachers.
