Time, Talent & Treasure lead to Rewards & Achievement

Valley Christian Academy relies on your help to provide our children with the best education possible. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school do better academically. Fund-raising projects provide us with an opportunity for teamwork in helping the school achieve our goals and objectives, as well as an atmosphere for the development of family bonding and camaraderie.

In order to achieve the above purposes and in an effort to keep tuition as low as possible, VCA is announcing a new “Family Service Plan” wherein every family must assume the responsibility of contributing to Valley Christian Academy  Family Service Plan according to both the Financial and Service Hour Commitments.

1. Financial Commitment

Agreement to contribute a minimum of $120 through selling Candy Bars which is our only mandatory fund raiser.  ($60 buy-out alternative option.)

2. Service Hour Commitment

Annual agreement to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours (20 hours for single parents) . Each family should account for all service hours performed and submit the total number of hours served to the school office in order to be credited to the family service plan. Service hours may be recorded on the form provided. The final date to submit service hours for the current school year will be April 30.

Additional Information

The accumulation of service hours will be on a school year basis, from September of the current school year through April of the following school year. Any hours accumulated after April 30 will be applied to the service contract for the following year. Any hours earned after April 30, but before the close of school may be submitted prior to school closing in June.

If a family does not meet the minimum fundraising requirement ($120), the difference will be added to the May tuition bill.

If a family does not meet the minimum service hour requirements (30 hours / 20 for single parents), the difference will be added to the May tuition bill at a rate of $10.00 per hour.

Additional hours do not equate to a reduction in tuition.
