Victory Collegiate Academy is more than just a new tuition-free, K-8 elementary charter school. It is a revolutionary idea that every child can have an opportunity to succeed in life if they are prepared in mind, body and spirit.
Our unique design is to reach the WHOLE child through what we call our “Healthy Body-Healthy Mind” approach which encompasses five key elements: Exercise, Nutrition, Academics, Social & Emotional and Character.
We are committed to closing the achievement gap by extending our school year to 185 days, extending our school day from 8:00 – 4:00, and by teaching English Language Arts and Math for 2 hours 30 minutes per subject each day. We will have Physical Education (PE) every single day along with a structured “free play” (modeled after Finland) several times throughout the day. We will provide students, free of charge, a healthy breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack, and sack dinner (for those students participating in after-school sports). We will have a full-time Student Advocate Counselor and a rigorous Character Education program.
Our vision is the final result of several years worth of in-depth research, and visits to countless high performing schools around the country, as to how best to help children of all backgrounds succeed. What we discovered is that all aspects of a child’s well-being are interconnected – emotional, physical, and mental. If one of these areas is lacking, the others areas are more likely to suffer.
That is why we created Victory Collegiate Academy: to empower the whole child. We will not only seek to challenge every student academically but also to enhance their social, emotional and physical development.
We know that VCA will be successful in helping the children of the Maryvale community not only reach their academic potential, but be VICTORIOUS in every aspect of their lives. We would be honored if you would allow us the opportunity to prove it.
