Why choose VCA?


Vineyard Christian Academy’s mission is to partner teachers with parents in order to enrich the minds and disciple the hearts of their children.

Our school is a dynamic educational option, changing alongside the needs of its families for nearly twenty years. We found that many parents not only want to spend more time with their children, but also want to provide an education that goes beyond academics. Here at VCA, we know that life demands deeper character than book smarts can give—a Christian worldview is a rock which weathers the storms of life. It is our passion to help parents equip their children with the biblical principles and Godly character they need to succeed. VCA is “the best of both worlds,” and our students are sharpened like iron academically, socially, and spiritually.

The blessings of VCA are:

  • The teachers put the thought and effort into AdvancedEd level lesson plans; freeing parents to focus on supporting their child on home instruction days.

  • Daily accountability with a structured University Model Schools International foundation & curriculum that meets or exceeds State of Idaho Education standards taught through a Christian worldview.

  • A community built on strong, Godly relationships between teachers, families & children.

  • Children have a regular, social outlet with like-minded people while still keeping home & family as their primary influence.

  • Smaller class sizes that offer more teacher/student interaction & instruction.


1. Christian Worldview

We start with a Biblical foundation in every subject we teach.

2. University Model School International / Advanced

VCA is becoming AdvancedEd accredited. Curriculum is aligned to meet or exceed academic standards for course work in Idaho. Our commitment and goal is to ensure our students are prepared & equipped for higher education and training.

3. Thinking, Articulate Students

Rather than simply filling students’ minds with facts, we go further to develop their ability to reason, read, write & speak at application & evaluation levels. This is achieved in part through the curriculum we choose & smaller class sizes than most traditional public or private schools offer, which gives students the opportunity to interact at deeper levels with each other & teachers.

4. Best of Both Worlds:

 Best of Both Worlds: VCA believes that for three days a week our teachers are an integral part of educating students in a classrooms setting by providing interactive instruction, then parents have the opportunity to stay connected with their children by enriching and reinforcing the lesson along with having quality time with their kids. With this combination the students’ experiences are broadened in the safe and trusted environments provided at school & at home.

5. Social/Peer Interaction in a Safe Environment

 VCA is dedicated to providing kids the opportunity to grow socially by learning Godly interaction, cooperation & problem solving. Personal accountability is taught through the ARMOR program.
