The School is part of the Prairie Spirit School Division.[1] It encompasses grades K–6 (elementary school), and 7–12 (high school).

History[edit]

VCA was founded in 1986, by the Bergthaler Mennonite Church in the nearby town of Warman, Saskatchewan.

Curriculum[edit]

VCA complies to the provincial curriculum, with modifications made when necessary to maintain a Christian perspective. An example of this is replacing material on the Theory of Evolution with material on the Creation Theory. In addition to the provincial curriculum, VCA offers Christian Ethics as a mandatory class for all grade levels. [1]

Staff[edit]

The school also only hires Christian Staff members.
