A School Worth Supporting 

EVCA’s aim is to develop the academic potential and personal character of each of its students regardless of background, socio-economic status or ability, and to graduate them fully prepared to become intelligent, responsible and active members of their community.  EVCA students are challenged to excel both in academics and in moral discipline. 


The EVCA Foundation is currently supporting the school with the construction of a 13,300 sq. ft. addition.  The new addition will include community living classroom, multi-purpose room (newly minted: Independence Hall), additional classrooms and music room. This year’s fundraising ventures seek to furnish the needs and completion of the addition.
