A LETTER FROM THE MS/HS PRINCIPAL - MRS. PARR


Dear VCA families, 

   As we embark on this new adventure of remote instruction, I want to assure you that we are working diligently to provide the best instruction we can for your children. Our efforts will continue throughout the school closure period. North Campus teachers will have a weekly video conference on Wednesdays to discuss our progress and make changes as necessary. In an effort to prepare to implement on-line instruction, teachers gathered on Saturday to organize and train. While we would have liked more time to prepare, teachers are ready to begin. 
   On Monday, March 16, students will meet with every teacher to receive directions for their courses. Students are expected to take all of their course materials home. 
   The E-Learning instructional days will follow our Purple/Gold alternating class schedule. Wednesdays will be a time to catch up on assignments and receive any additional tutoring. (The schedule is provided in the link below.) Attendance is important. Students will fill out a Google Form daily to indicate they are present for instruction. In order to provide students with help on their assignments, teachers will provide “office hours.” It is very important that we stay connected and are always communicating; therefore, teachers will have weekly video conferences with their students. 
   One area of concern is the number of available Chromebooks at the North Campus. There are only a few Chromebooks available to loan out to students. If you own additional devices at home, would you consider letting another student use your child’s Chromebook. Please let us know. If you have a problem with your Chromebook, please contact your teacher. All Chromebooks will be monitored through Go Guardian. Administration will be alerted to any inappropriate use of the device. 
   It is comforting to know that our God is Sovereign and He will provide for us during this time. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I will be available by email mparr@vcacademy.info or during my office hours, 10:00 - 12:00 at 219-263-3366. Feel free to text me or leave me a message and I will get back to you quickly. 

May God Bless you and keep you safe, 

Marisol Parr Principal/Academic Dean

Victory Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to VCA students. We do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admissions procedures, and scholarship awards, athletic and other school administered programs. We do, however, reserve the right to deny admission or employment to any individual who cannot benefit from enrollment based on past academic achievement, disqualifying handicap, or whose personal lifestyle is not in harmony with the Holy Bible, and VCA’ s stated philosophy and purpose. VCA’s biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christ like. Of necessity, this involves the school’s understanding and belief of what qualities or characteristics exemplify a Christ-like life according to Scripture. The school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student if the atmosphere or the conduct within a particular home or the activities of the student are counter to or are in direct opposition to the biblical lifestyle taught in the Bible. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, participating in, supporting, or condoning sexual immorality, homosexual/lesbian or bisexual activity, promoting such practices and asserting that any philosophy other than God alone is the determiner of gender; and/or that marriage is between anything other than one man and one woman. VCA will love and pray for families with these struggles but we must stand firm in declaring that Scripture is truth and thus it would not make a good fit for students and/or families that are unable to support the moral principles of the school as taken from Scripture. (See Leviticus 20:13 and Romans 1:27)
