Policies


For a complete list of all of Victory Academy's policies, please refer to the current year's Parent/Student Handbook.


Dress Code


Victory Academy develops a dress code to develop student attitudes and behaviors that would honor our Lord Jesus Christ and to promote spiritual growth.  We desire all of our actions, words, deeds, and appearance and those of our students to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ.  We often express our modesty and intentions of our hearts in how we dress. In turn, the way we dress affects our self-esteem, behavior, relationships, and schoolwork.  All students are required to wear approved apparel to comply with VA's dress code. See uniform page.
