Courses of Study
College Preparatory Diploma
VCA students have an opportunity to receive an accredited diploma through ACE's Dual Enrollment Program. This is not state accreditation. Lighthouse Christian Academy (LCA), ACE's Distance Learning Program, has secured accreditation through Accreditation International (AI). VCA students may enroll in LCA in order to earn credits that apply to a diploma from LCA. There is an annual fee that must be paid to LCA as well as a graduation fee.
