Welcome to VCA home school ministry

We are glad you have chosen Vinemont Christian Academy HomeSchool Ministry to Assist you in providing a Christian Education for your child/children. Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 6:6-8, Ephesians 6:4b are some of the Scriptures that have given instructions to train our Children. Parents are the first and most influential teachers in a child's life, and may we add - and the most accountable for our children as well. I know many parents who have home-schooled their children and have reaped great rewards for their sacrifice and efforts. I hope that you will love your children with all your heart and do the absolute best job possible in educating them. We are here to help you accomplish your task.

We have the Christian curriculum and the detailed program that will help you succeed. A Bible centered and individualized program that meets the needs of children of any ability level. All children are different and need to be taught in an individual manner. All children are spiritual beings, created by God and need to be spiritually prepared for life as well as academically.

Vinemont Christian Academy has been providing Christian education since 1975 and are well experienced to assist you with the educating of your child/children.

VCA has accomplished many years of Christian education, by the help and Grace of God.

Many people have contributed to this ministry. We give God the credit for everything that has been accomplished, and for all those who have assisted us and the many families we have served.

While you are learning this program of education for your child/children, please allow our staff to assist you in any way we may be of assistance. We are servants of the Lord in this work and want to be a blessing to all.

In Christian Service,

Dr. Aaron Dawson, Pastor/Administrator
