“VCA is a wonderful, small private school with strong academics and a Christian foundation.
The class sizes offer a great student-to-teacher ratio, providing more opportunities for each child’s specific skills and needs.
Our child thrives in this safe and loving environment, and as a parent I know my child is in the hands of strong teachers who have a love for God.”

Dr. Dave and Paula Herald

“What a blessing to experience VCA as a parent and a teacher!
I realized right away that I wanted to be a part of this incredible faculty of Christians who teach the truth academically and inspire students to have a personal relationship with Jesus. As staff members, we are provided with various opportunities to develop, not just as teachers, but to go deeper in our personal relationship with the Lord as well. It takes a village to raise our children, and there is no other community I would want my children raised in other than VCA where Christ is the focus. VCA is truly priceless and we treasure their commitment to our children.”

Brandon and Betsy Midkiff
Parent Teacher

“We have had such a great first year experience at VCA! Moving back to our hometown of Cottonwood meant moving to a new school for our kids with all new faces. From day one they felt embraced and accepted. With Chapel being one of the highlights of their week, they felt free and encouraged to show their love for God! We really appreciate the parent/teacher communication and the way Mr. Russel interacts with the students. It shows such a sincere intention towards the education of each child. “-

The Minjarez Family

“The first time we set foot on the campus at Verde Christian Academy, we knew it would be the right fit for our children. Mr. Russel, the principal, patiently answered all our questions and concerns, and the teachers were very friendly. We sensed a sweet spirit at the school instantly. We immediately enrolled our children, and have through the years seen them grow both spiritually and academically. Thank you Verde Christian Academy for all you have done for our children and the children in this community!”

The Larkly Family

“We love Verde Christian Academy! We love that they are taught Christian values, character traits, and that they strive for academic excellence. As a former teacher, I’ve been so impressed by their standards as well as the extra work put in by the teachers to help the children excel. We also love the people that we’ve gotten to know through the school and the friendships that our kids have made there. Irecommend VCA almost any time I speak to people with school-aged kids. We feel very blessed to have a school of such high caliber to send all of our children through.”
