Welcome to Verndale Area Christian Academy Elementary School

Verndale Area Christian Academy Elementary School offers classes from childcare and preschool – 1st Grade (with 2nd-6th Grades to follow).  Our goal is to provide a strong academic education within a culturally rich Christian environment.  We offer a loving, family atmosphere with a focus on strong Christian values where students are encouraged to reach their academic potential. Through our small class sizes, Christian curriculum and exceptional teachers, we are blessed to be able to offer individual academic attention to students while developing the spiritual growth of each child.

Choosing the school that is right for you is a process that requires care and patience. The best way to know if Verndale Area Christian Academy is right for you is to learn about us and let us get to know you, too. We would love to talk with you or schedule a personal tour today!


The truth of the gospel is at the heart of our school. Teachers and staff actively speak God’s truth into the lives of their students and desire to see each one accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Through Christian curriculum and weekly chapel services, students have the opportunity to learn and grow in their faith as they are presented with God's truth in ways that can be easily applied to their lives. It is our desire that each child will grow in godliness of character and action as they place God at the center of their heart.

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
Proverbs 22:6


At Verndale Area Christian Academy Elementary School we believe that the basis of all teaching is God and His Word. Our desire is that each student would accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. A goal of our mission is to nurture and train each child so that they will grow in godliness of character and action.

VACA addresses educational practices from a Christian perspective by offering its students the opportunity to understand themselves and the world around them from a Christian worldview. Some of this education will be formal (Chapel, Bible classes and studies, counseling) and some will occur as the faculty and students interact in the normal flow of school activity. The goal is to facilitate the development of the student: spiritually, academically, physically, socially and emotionally. The school employs administration, faculty and staff who serve as role models in their Christian walk, and who are maturing both professionally and in their Christian faith.

In training children to serve the Lord, VACA makes a strong statement for high academic and social standards of conduct. We believe that the school is an extension of the home, and we expect parents to support the goals of the school.
