Village Christian Academy Reviews
My children have loved Village Christian Academy. They started in elementary school and now one is in college doing very well. the other is in high school ready to go to college and is also involved in sports.
The teachers are very caring and competent. The school has a vision for academic excellence with a Christian worldview.
We highly recommend it and it is convenient to most people's work, where he at fort Bragg or in town.
Athletics over academics
Unfortunately in the last two years, this school has not changed. I wish I would have read the post from 2012 before enrolling my child. Not only does this school focus more on football than textbooks that are falling apart, they also tend to favor the students that play sports. Athletes are permitted to wear special shirts and coats in the building even though this is a uniform required school. Students with straight A’s who don’t play sports get no special “uniform” to wear, but that’s just one small example of the many privileges athletes only get. We will not be returning.
Don't be duped by the name. We pulled our children out after the significant decline in the last few years. Our children attended VCA shortly after the school started and we kept them there for nearly 8 years. It started off as an ideal school with strong moral character and where discipline was enforced. The focus has since shifted from academics and Christianity to athletics. They are focusing all of their current attention on the $100,000 renovation of the football field when their resources should be directed toward class size and recruiting strong Christian teachers who are active in local churches. The dress code is non-existant, compare it to your local public school and you would be stunned. In recent years there have been issues with weapons and drugs. Problems that could have been averted had they actually had standards with ther admissions. There is no link between the school and the church that share the name. Currently the only thing required is your ability to pay the tuition. Bullying and materialism are the norm. If you are looking for a "Christian" education for your child do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
