Estancia Valley Classical Academy is a wonderful example of a charter school system recognized for its academic excellence and proven results! The classical approach to education is a rigorous exercise in the arts, sciences, and humanities.
These are the reasons for community support of this school:
- Educational choice for children
- Classical education model that is research-based and focused on literacy skills and virtue
- Need for students to be more academically challenged.
- Poor AYP results in the local district and concern for the direction of education in NM in general
- Smaller classes and more individualized attention for students
- Prevent dropouts
- Offer safe learning environment and lower crime.
- Competition is healthy.
As did America’s Founding Fathers, the Estancia Valley Classical Academy believes that the preservation of liberty depends on an intelligent and moral citizenry. In order for Americans to secure the way of life we enjoy, our youth must know and understand the truths and principles that define Western Civilization and underlie the American Constitution.EVCA was founded by a group of concerned community members who aim to counter the trend of academic mediocrity and cultural illiteracy in America. EVCA provides students the benefit of a content rich and academically rigorous classical liberal arts education with a strong civics component, without the price tag of a private school.
At EVCA, students are challenged to excel both in academics and in moral discipline. Students learn reading, math, and science through time proven methods and learn a true account of history based in the reading of primary source documents. Furthermore, discipline, ethics, and personal responsibility are modeled and expected. EVCA’s aim is to develop the academic potential and personal character of each of its students, regardless of background, socio-economic status and ability, and to graduate them fully prepared to become intelligent, responsible, and active members of their community.
