What is Valley Creek Leadership Academy (VCLA) all about?

VCLA equips kingdom leaders for life. Student leaders will gain a greater sense of who they are, who God is, and what they were created to do. VCLA prepares and empowers kingdom leaders for their next step into college, graduate school, or into their career path.

Who would be a prime candidate for VCLA?

VCLA is an excellent choice for 18-24 year olds who are motivated to grow and hungry for a challenge.

Is VCLA a “gap year” program?

We prefer the term “bridge year.” The nine months is not just a “gap” in your education, career, or calling. We want to help students “bridge” towards the next steps God has in store for them.

What makes VCLA unique?

Kingdom Leadership Focus: We will impart leadership skills from a kingdom perspective.

Collaborative Community: Students will experience personal growth as they journey through the academy experience together.

Missional Service and Travel: We will experience the diversity of the global Church through local mission immersion and foreign partnership investments.

What is required to apply?

Students can apply online at vcla.me. The application includes a questionnaire, two letters of recommendation, a resume, and a two minute video.

Are scholarships and housing available?

No. Students are responsible for securing their tuition costs and their housing arrangements.

Are students able to work in addition to their VCLA responsibilities?

Yes. Students will be able to work part-time on weekends as long as it doesn’t interfere with outside reading and assignments (approximately 5-10 hours per week).

Is VCLA accredited?

It is not accredited and is not intended to replace a college degree. It will be an intense educational experience designed to accelerate their development. At the conclusion of the year, VCLA students will have a certificate of completion, letters of recommendation, godly relationships, depth of character, and a confidence in their next steps.
