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)
