A humble beginning of Vickery Homeschool Community Learning Centre (“VHCLC”) started in August 2010 when a house in Ciniru 2 No. 5 in Jakarta opened its doors for 3 students growing up to 18 students within 6 months.
The vision represented concerted efforts, faith and convictions to teach the children to reach and fulfill God’s plan in their life. These parents prayed for God’s direction, searched for better homeschool curiculum, the system and administration while being submitted under the umbrella program of Alpha Omega from Fawnridge Christian Academy in Tanjung Pinang.
Before the end of the first school year of VHCLC, we realized the need of providing bigger facilities to
acomodate many homeschool parents that have come to our bi-weekly meeting.
At the same time, God have provided us with 12 board members with the heart to bless the vision with a 900 square meters of facility at Park Royale Tower 3.
Saturday the 16th of April is the first Parents Meeting attended by 50 parents, followed by several other bi-weekly meeting while giving parents time to pray and ask for God’s direction for the family. We ask the parents for their
commitment to homeschool their children.
We are gratefull and have given God our endless thankgiving for committed teachers and staffs that came not only with their unquestioneable teaching skills and proffesional skills, but mostly for their good character and deep love of God. There are still blessings that we are waiting for God to provide, but we know that He is faithful and will answer each and every need in His beautiful time.
This is our Story.
2010 - today
With a Christian Worldview.
Vickery Christian Academy is a private institution that exists to educate students using a Christian and classical approach for Pre Kindergarten, Kindergarter, Elementary, through High School.
Our desire is that students would grow in serving the Lord Jesus Christ as they discover more about His creation and work in history, and their gifts and calling.
We want our graduates to succeed in life as they think and act biblically, building upon the foundational education they have received at Vickery Christian Academy.
The vision to establish an umbrella program for many homeschool families in Indonesia has started back in 2003. Through the process of purely starting from a home with several families, Vickery Community Learning Center was eventually commenced in August 2010 as a licensed home-based Learning Center with a vision:
To bring the education back to the family,
To establish the character of Christ for the family, and
To progressively shape the culture of the Nation.
With the blessing from God and the prayers of committed family for His calling to become a blessing for the Nation, Vickery Community Learning Center has turn into and legally existed as a Pre-Kindergarten (2 years old) through Grade 12 private institution to educate students using a Christian and classical approach.
The community learning center is now called "Vickery Christian Academy". It is our humble desire that each and every one of the student would grow in serving the Lord Jesus Christ as they not only discover more about His creation and work in history, but also realize the talents and the gifts that each one of them has in God. We want our graduates to succeed in life because they think and act biblically; building upon the foundational education they have received at Vickery Christian Academy.
