02: Admissions Policy

Victory Life Academy offers instruction in Pre-K through twelfth grade and is a Christian school emphasizing the spiritual as well as academic development of the student.

A strong scriptural foundation is pivotal to Victory Life Academy’s curriculum, as such, students will learn scriptures that clearly tell of God’s plan of salvation, receive instruction in Biblical knowledge and learn how to apply scripture in their daily life.

Parents/Guardians desiring admission of their child to Victory Life Academy shall:

  • complete the enrollment process and provide all necessary support documents
  • make payment of enrollment and insurance fees which are due at time of enrollment for new students and due at time of reenrollment for returning students.
  • regularly attend a church of their choice as a family.
  • be willing to support VLA’s Philosophy of Christian Education through participation in the educational process of their child.

No student will be considered enrolled without completing the entire enrollment process. Should it be determined by the administration team that Victory Life Academy is not able to meet the educational needs of the student and is not able to enroll them, then the enrollment fee(s) will be refunded in full. Otherwise, all enrollment fees are non-refundable.

All applications are subject to the approval of VLA’s administrative team and taken on a space available basis. Applicants are considered in the following order:

  • First consideration is given to returning students.
  • Next, students whose parents are members of Victory Life Church are considered.
  • Third, those whose families are committed to Christian education are considered.

Grades According to Ages: To be enrolled in Kindergarten, the child must be 5 years old by September 1 of the enrollment year. The first grade child must be 6 years old by September 1 of the enrollment year. Exceptions for 4 year olds who will be tested to determine eligibility.

Re-enrollment: Re-enrollment packets will be available online to parents during the first week of March. Students who currently attend VLA will be given the first opportunity to re-enroll for the next year. Also, at this time, children who are current members of Victory Life Church will be given the opportunity to enroll for the coming school year.

Early Re-enrollment for current students is necessary for those parents who would like to be assured of a space for their child. Completion of the re-enrollment process needs to be completed as quickly as possible. If the school does not receive a re-enrollment confirmation back from the parents by the time of open enrollment, the administration team will assume that the parents do not wish to reserve a space for their child.

Tuition & Fees Payment Agreement: Parents sign a Parental Release & Agreement form and a Payment Agreement form yearly. These forms establish parental financial responsibility for payment of tuition and fees in a timely manner. VLA accepts all major credit cards for payment. Families whose accounts become delinquent may be subject to:

  • Once the account becomes 20 days past due the parent/guardian will receive a phone call or email to inform them that if the account is not brought current within the next ten days, their student/students will be subject to a 3-day involuntary withdrawal. Students may be readmitted when the account is brought current.
  • If the account is not brought current or a satisfactory agreement made within 10 days of the involuntary withdrawal the student/students will be withdrawn from the school. Students may be readmitted when the account is brought current providing their space is still available.
  • Delinquency on outstanding balances for bus fees, fundraiser amounts due, cafeteria bills, library fees, etc. may be subject to a late fee of $25 if not brought current within 30 days.
  • Report cards and records will not be released at any time until school accounts are brought current.
  • A charge of $25 will be applied to the student’s account for checks returned for insufficient funds.

No records will be released for any student until a release form from the school office has been obtained, all library books have been returned and outstanding library fines paid, all rented textbooks have been returned and all outstanding payments have been made.
