When Pastor Billy Joe started Victory Christian School, he challenged students to become men and women of destiny and not to settle for being average. His vision for being extraordinary impacted the lives of 100’s of VCS graduates as they strived to fulfill their God infused calling. He believed that Christian education was the key to impacting the world for Christ and that developing a quality program without compromising the word of God was the formula for success.
Victory Christian School has been impacting the Tulsa area for over 35 years and continues to be a shining light in Christian education. We operate under the leadership of Pastor Paul Daugherty and our school board to be sure to carry further the legacy and impact of the original vision of Pastor Billy Joe to a new generation. Empowered by the vision that God has created every person with a unique purpose, we will continue to develop a school that prepares young men and women for greatness.
Greatness requires focus, resilience, and a persistent pursuit of excellence. Excellence (Greek word arête) can be defined as achieving the highest of standards or fulfilling one’s purpose or potential. An alternative definition, often overlooked, comes from the letters of Paul. In 1 Corinthians 12:31, Paul talks about a “still more excellent way.” This way is, namely, the love of God. Woven together, fulfillment of purpose, highest standards and biblical love create the fabric of excellence that is rare and valued. VCS will make every effort to become one of those rare and valued schools as we relentlessly pursue excellence from a Christ-centered perspective through an educational program designed to equip every child for their intended purpose.
Our pursuit of excellence integrates a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum with a distinctive biblical worldview program designed to help each student learn how to live a flourishing life and confront the cultural distractions that lure them from the power of a God-centered life. Beyond the core foundational programs, VCS offers outstanding instruction and leadership in the award winning and state recognized performing and visual arts. VCS also offers a spirited athletic program that has amassed numerous conference, regional, and state titles by competing with a contagious passion to honor Christ on and off the field.
Victory Christian School will continue to fulfill the original vision of Pastor Billy Joe to a new generation of students by challenging them in the classroom, encouraging their individual talents, nurturing their spiritual gifts, igniting their passion to serve and preparing them for greatness.
