For Prospective Students

Tuesday, April 4


Valley Creek Leadership Academy (VCLA) students have two different kinds of curriculum during their 2 year experience. They will walk through our VCLA curriculum, and they’ll have classes they take with Southeastern University. The VCLA curriculum will be taught by ministry and marketplace leaders within our Valley Creek Family. They are both educational and experiential, have no homework, and will be offered in person at our Flower Mound Campus. These courses will be on the topics of Theology, Character, Leadership, and the Bible.

We also have a partnership with Southeastern University (SEU) in Lakeland, Florida. SEU partners with VCLA to host an instructional site on the church campus and offers students affordable degree programs. Students will take classes through SEU’s digital platform at our Flower Mound campus.

VCLA courses, SEU classes, student life, mission trips, retreats, are all designed to prepare young adults for their next step in college or their career, and it’s all included in their tuition. You can find out more about the cost of tuition, degree plans, financial aid, and more by going to
