FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Leon Valley Christian Academy's (LVCA's) educational philosophy?
We at LVCA understand that children must want to learn and apply themselves in order to achieve academic success. It is because of this basic understanding that we incorporate character development, attitude maintenance, and service into our daily routine. Learning to respect ourselves and others fosters a desire to serve our community; therefore, students will become productive members of our society. God’s Word is the foundation on which we stand, and we do not apologize for our foundation. By memorizing portions of God’s Word our students will be accessing fundamental lessons in character development, attitude control, and service. We further understand that parental involvement is essential to a child’s academic success. Realizing this, we expect parents to take an active role in their children’s education. Parents enrolling their children are basically agreeing to a partnership with the school and are acknowledging an understanding of their responsibility to the success of their children’s education.
Is LVCA accredited?
Yes. As a Member of the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS), LVCA have access to the direction and accountability needed to properly administrate. The accreditation process requires conformity to a comprehensive list of safety and academic requirements. Although LVCA is not pursuing official accreditation status, LVCA closely conforms to AACS accreditation requirements as closely and continuously reviews these requirements to ensure that we are maintaining high standards of operation.
