VCA Impact is a nonprofit intended to benefit the students and enhance the culture of Victory Christian Academy and, subsequently, our community. We desire to equip students — both inside and outside of the classroom — to impact the world around them.
In 2016, VCA Impact helped students go on a historical class trip to the East Coast in 2016. Integrated with purpose, vision, and challenge, this educational tour included Washington, D.C., Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Philadelphia, and New York City.
In 2018, VCA Impact helped students attend Engage Global’s EXPLORE Extended Weekend, a four-day event in Minneapolis where students received cross-cultural teaching and Christian training.
In 2023, we are planning to send students in 7th through 12th grades on another Christian tour of the historical East Coast with Rene Couture from Our Time in History. Rene is an expert guide with over twenty-five years of professional educational tour experience, having guided more than 10,000 students on East Coast tours, including our own students in 2016. The dates for this trip are Saturday, March 4 through Saturday, March 11.
Itinerary for the 2023 tour:
- Historic Triangle — Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown
- Washington, D.C. — memorials, museums, and as many sites as we can pack in!
- Philadelphia — Independence Hall, Liberty Bell
- New York City — Statue of Liberty, 911 Memorial and Museum
On a tour with Rene, students and educators are instructed in America’s heritage while challenged to rise up and make a difference in our nation. Her inspiring narratives at historically significant places broaden participants’ understanding of current events as well as enlarge their worldview.
Security, professionalism, and excellence are emphasized throughout Rene’s tours. Thousands of her past travelers have described their experience as life-changing; we are confident that our students will agree.
Invest today into the lives of local students and leaders to help empower them to become tomorrow’s worldchangers!
