Equipping For Life

We are grounded in a classical tradition of education that equips our children to navigate a changing world in light of unchanging wisdom.

Loving Christ

Our first priority is to introduce your child to the life-giving love of Jesus Christ.  We believe a relationship with Christ is the framework for living well. Our staff strives to lead by example, living out that relationship for our students to see and experience.

Being A Light

Vail Christian Academy shines brightly through our Compassion projects, O2 outdoor education program, service outreach projects and Leadership crew.  The love of Jesus Christ is shown consistently through our leaders, staff, volunteers and students.

About Us

Our Mission

Loving Christ:  Being like-minded, and bonded by faith, the Board of Directors, staff , and volunteers at Vail Christian Academy lead by example; loving, supporting and encouraging each other and the students, and worshipping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in song, prayer and bible curriculum.

Equipping Kids: We are committed to meeting families where they are and providing a classical Christian curriculum and higher standards of character.  Through accountability and by providing a loving environment for our children to learn, grow, and flourish with their peers, our students are given the foundation to communicate effectively, think resourcefully, and become responsible leaders who can positively contribute to society.

Being a Light:  Vail Christian Academy shines brightly through our Compassion projects, O2 outdoor education program, service outreach projects, and Leadership crew.  The love of Jesus Christ is shown daily and consistently through our leaders, staff, volunteers and students.

Our Academics

Christ Centered: In all its levels, programs and teaching, Vail Christian Academy is based on these foremost truths from God’s Word:  The authority, authenticity, and reliability of the Bible; the sovereignty of God; the creation of man in the image of God; the moral principles of the Bible; the centrality and authority of Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with Him.

Classical Emphasis: We embrace a classical approach to education by incorporating formal classes in Latin, Logic, and Classical Literature in various stages of our program. Classical teaching methods range from class lectures, to debates, to Socratic (discussion-oriented) teaching. Independent learning skills are sharpened at all grade levels.

Emphasizing concrete thinking and memorization in grade school and analytical thinking in the middle grades is a time tested method of teaching that helps students master the skills of learning and helps them understand and think, with greater depth, about the world around them.
