Victory Christian School, midway between Sylva and Franklin, North Carolina just off highway 441, will begin the new school year on Monday, Aug. 22. Victory is unusual in that not only is it a private school, but it is also a Christian school. The school is a member of the North Carolina Christian School Association and the American Association of Christian Schools and is approved by the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education (part of the North Carolina Public School system in Raleigh). VCS is uniquely designed to train Christian young people to be ready for whatever God has for them to do in life.
Graduation requirements from Victory meet or exceed the academic requirements for the sixteen member institutions of the University of North Carolina. Curriculum used is selected for a strong academic emphasis and a Christian philosophy. Christian textbooks from Christian publishers are used whenever possible (either from A Beka Books produced by Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Florida, or from Bob Jones University Press in Greenville, S.C.).
Teachers at Victory Christian School are academically and spiritually prepared, and average more than 20 years of teaching experience. They take very seriously their God-given responsibilities of leading their students toward academic excellence and a high degree of personal responsibility. The faculty is concerned with the success of every student under their care.
Students need activity and Victory provides it. VCS has an aggressive inter-scholastic sports program with other area Christian schools in volleyball, basketball, and golf. Private vocal music lessons, string lessons and brass lessons are available. Individual classes have appropriate field trips for academic purposes.
Victory students taking the nationally recognized Stanford Achievement Tests average scoring well above the national average or the 50th percentile which means that VCS’s average scores are higher than 67 percent of the students taking the test nationally. In the last eight years nearly 95 percent of Victory’s graduates have gone to college.
Although some costs are involved in children attending Victory, the costs are kept as low as possible. These fees are available from the school office. Discounts are given for families with more than one child in school and monthly payments may be arranged through the office. After School Care is available from 3:30 to 5:30. Transportation is available from Clayton, Ga.; Otto, N.C.; and the Whistle Stop Mall in Franklin for a nominal fee.
Victory Christian School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available at the school. Victory does not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, athletics or other school-administered programs.
