SVCA was started in 1976 with a goal of providing a quality education in a wholesome Christian environment. It was started with a passion to educate future generations to love God and serve Him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. A Christ-centered, Bible-based curriculum is of vital importance at SVCA. Bible classes are offered at every grade level. Regular chapel services challenge students to live for God and seek His will for their lives.
For 38 years SVCA has graduated young men and women at a high academic level that has enabled them to attend the universities of their choice. Our graduates have excelled at Harvard, UVA, William and Mary, the Air Force Academy, Virginia Tech, James Madison, and Liberty University, just to name a few. They have gone on to become doctors, nurses, lawyers, college professors, computer technicians, missionaries, pastors, business owners, civil servants, and skilled craftsmen. Several have returned to SVCA to teach in the elementary and upper school.
SVCA has great teachers! Our teachers have decades of experience and love teaching. Their skills, training, and experience combine to provide a high quality education. They also love their students, and it shows in the bonds they form with them. The teachers invest time with students, both inside and outside the classroom. Most importantly, SVCA teachers love the Lord and are committed to serving Him.
SVCA offers a challenging curriculum with an emphasis on critical thinking skills. Tutors are available to offer assistance during class time and after school. SVCA also works with Frederick County to offer special education speech and developmental therapy for students with special needs. SVCA students in pre-school through eighth grade take fine arts classes to encourage creative expression and appreciation for music and the visual arts. Our elementary and middle school curriculum is further supplemented with foreign language and physical education. In addition to the strong core classes, high school students are offered a variety of interesting electives such as drama, sports management, American Sign Language, and art. Dual enrollment allows students to take college courses to gain college credit while still in high school. Many students also gain college credit by passing CLEP tests because of the strong academic foundation they received at SVCA.
Your child is safe at SVCA! The local police department patrols the campus regularly. We provide well-maintained buildings, and our teachers and staff are well-trained to deal with emergency situations.
SVCA's gymnasium and athletic fields provide access to a year-round sports program including boys' baseball, basketball, and soccer; and girls' volleyball, soccer, basketball, and cheerleading. SVCA coaches have received local and national recognition. They challenge young athletes to develop Christ-like character through sports. SVCA has a great history of champion teams and individuals. Numerous regional, state, and national banners and trophies adorn the halls and walls. In recent years, SVCA has won the following titles:
