Middle School, for any student, is a time that offers opportunities for greater independence with some directed support from home and school. At Vineyard Christian Academy we provide these opportunities, in addition to higher personal and academic expectations, with the focus of preparing students for a successful high school experience. Bible classes in which we study and apply the Word of God to daily life, begins each school day at VCA. Each grade level has a Literature class where the students read and discuss literature as well as learn continued mastery of writing skills, including MLA formatting. History and Geography are presented to the student with the constant influence of a Christian world view. Science is also presented through a Christian lens with hands-on application including lab work and presentations. Mathematics is level specific using excellent curriculum to prepare each student for whatever educational endeavors they pursue in the future. Students are also offered various electives, including computer skills, drama and finance. Curriculum is chosen with AdvancedED accreditation and Idaho State Education Standards in view. Each subject is taught by teachers that are knowledgeable and experienced in that area of study.

In addition, presentations for National History Day are a highlight students and families look forward to each year.
