"I am grateful for my time as a student at VSCA. I can honestly say that the teachers and staff here truly value their students and want to help them succeed. I am really thankful for the way they have poured into my life. While the school is small in number, it still provides students the valuable opportunity to experience, learn, and grow in many areas of life. I have received much encouragement, support, and guidance in academics, extra-curricular endeavors, interests, etc. The school's vision of having students "impact their world using their God-given talents and abilities", and being able to demonstrate " academic achievement, Biblical leadership and having the ability to articulate and defend a Christian worldview" makes this school unique. I did not only grow in knowledge during my time here; I grew in faith, in understanding, and in whole, as a person. My teachers took into consideration my ideas and questioning, allowing me to learn, gain experience, and become better prepared for furthering my education and career."

"The Christmas Cantata was GOD ORDAINED!!! Let us share what happened:
Mom had to work that day and Dad took the night off. We had planned to attend as a family but our little guys was a little cranky so Dad kept him home. Mom is also in grad school and was beyond tired. Daniel (grade 4) and Mom came. Daniel wanted to be there to support his school and school mates so Mom came in from work and dropped her bag down and off they went. There was such a sweet presence of the Lord in the place. Encouragement, Joy, and Strength were tangible. Mom watched Daniel's face light up as he praised God and shouted with excitement for his schoolmates of all ages, he knew all - youngest through the "cool kids" aka the High Schoolers, lol!! Mom felt the weight and cares of this world lifted as she joined in praise and song! This night was an amazing display of God's presence and of the power of unity. Each person played a role that made that night a Godly success. Please remind every member of VSCA that they play an important role in the education of our children academically and spiritually- there is no such thing as an unimportant or irrelavent job in the kingdom- Thank you all!"

“VSCA was an answer to prayer for me and my family. I originally went to Hempstead High. Which was a bad experience because I had just moved and I didn’t have Christian friends that went there. But we heard about VSCA and I finished my high school career there. I made lifelong friends with great students, but not just with the students, with the teachers as well.”
-Jonny McIntosh (class of 2014 graduate)
“I love being able to go out with my high school friends during lunch time.”
-Keturah Paul (class of 2015 graduate)
“The reason why I like coming to VSCA is because it has this cute, little, small community. Everybody is kind of tied together in this small familial bond. That just really brings me closer to home because in my family I don’t have a lot of children who are my age. In this school, although there aren’t many students, it just kind of brings us together as a whole as friends, but more as a family.”
-Natalie Fretes-Silva (class of 2015 graduate)
“I am truly so blessed to have had the privilege to go to VSCA. Seeing myself compared to other young Christians around me, who didn’t have such a great opportunity, I can see how God used the atmosphere, classes, teachers, and friends to pour wisdom and knowledge about Him into myself. I’m glad I can and did appreciate that small haven that lasted a short period of time but left a lifetime’s effect.”
-Raquel Vargas (class of 2014 graduate)
“I like VSCA because it is a place that allows for spiritual and intellectual growth through the love and encouragment from the faculty and also the friendships made along the way.”
-Dominick Villacarlos (class of 2015 graduate)
"I never had the opportunity to thank you for your help. I am extremely pleased with the school. Stephen loves his teachers and they truly work hard to provide him with a quality Christian education. Thank you for everything and have a blessed day."
