Aucilla Christian Academy Offers VPK Program

Published:  January 23, 2017

Aucilla Christian Academy, in conjunction with the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend Region, is pleased to announce that they are now offering the Voluntary PreKindergarten program. The Voluntary PreKindergarten program (VPK) is a program established by the Florida Legislature designed to prepare Florida's four-year-olds for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. Participation is free for all children who are four-years-old on or before September 1 of the year participating and who are Florida residents. The program follows the school calendar during the hours of 8:15 to 11:25 a.m.  The VPK program is contained during those specific hours, but the school offers the option for families to extend this to a full day program. Although the VPK program is free, there is a charge for students participating in the full day program.

ACA has had a highly successful prekindergarten program for decades. They will offer the same quality experience for VPK students that has proven so successful for so many years. 

“We continue to be very pleased with our prekindergarten program and are implementing the same program from both an academic and spiritual perspective,” said Principal Richard Finlayson. “We feel VPK will enhance our program in two primary ways. It will obviously provide a financial benefit for our families who participate, but most importantly it will expand our opportunity to impact even more children and families in a positive way for Jesus Christ. We are delighted to have Mrs. Noel Cruce leading this program for us. Her expertise and knowledge have been a tremendous blessing to our ministry.”
ACA is pleased to report that the program is at capacity for the current school year.
