Victory Academy is a classical Christian college preparatory school for children in Junior Kindergarten (3 & 4 yrs) – 3rd grade, adding a grade a year through 12th. Victory Academy is dedicated to nurturing and challenging the whole person- body, mind and spirit to the glory of God.
We believe that a Christian education, established in a classical framework, along with innovative programs, and an environment that promotes independent thinkers, builds character and responsibility, will help us achieve this mission.
A Lasting Decision
Few investments have more potential than your children’s education. The way they see the world, the way they approach life, and the depth of their character are all influenced by education. The choice of where and how to educate your children can be challenging and complicated.
Public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, home schools, non-sectarian and religious private schools all have something to offer. Educational styles and methods range from the traditional to the progressive. How does your child learn? Does he enjoy art? Technology? Does he learn spatially, visually, or audibly? Finding the right fit can be a daunting task.
Classical Christian education is unique in that it seeks to faithfully restore the most proven form of education ever developed. This education produced the greatest thinkers, leaders, and scientists in the Western world from the time of the Greeks until the late 19th century, including America’s founding fathers. From the heritage of America’s Ivy League colleges and classical day schools, leaders in every field continue to emerge from the fragmented legacy of classical education. Unfortunately, its pure form, including a Christian worldview, has been lost until its revival in the early 1980’s.
We as parents want to know how a classically-educated student actually fares on standardized tests, in college and in the workplace. The answer is they do very well and not just because we or they are so clever and smart, but because the proven methods of classical education enable them to.
Students around the nation in classical schools typically score in the top 10-15 percent on national tests like the Stanford Achievement Test and Scholastic Aptitude Test. Established classical schools often graduate a significant proportion of National Merit Scholars (determined by PSAT scores) and students with extremely competitive SAT scores (in the top 5 percent). Classically educated students have no trouble getting into good colleges and many qualify for highly selective colleges and universities and a good number receive merit scholarships or other scholarships.
