In addition to their academic study, students are challenged to develop a personal relationship with Christ and continually grow in their relationship with Him and to use their gifts for His glory.
Educational Philosophy of SVCA
The educational philosophy of SVCA is based on the tenets of Deuteronomy 6:5-7 and Luke 10:27.
In keeping with our philosophy that the mind of every individual is a reflection of God Himself, we believe that we can encourage the students who are admitted to Shenandoah Valley Christian Academy through our instructional process to live for God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. Through diligent process of applying Christian-based education into the lives of our students, we believe this goal is attainable. We strive to serve God in such a way that our ministry will impact the lives of our students and their families pointing them to a true perception of a Christian worldview.
We perceive the Christian School as an extension of the home in providing a complementing and consistent Christian lifestyle for each student we have in our ministry. Together, the home and the school can point a child to a true perception of a Christian worldview.
