QUALITY ACADEMICS AND CHRISTIAN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
Grade School at Victory
In order to carry out the command of Jesus, “Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you…” (Matthew 28:20), in 1961 the members of Pilgrim Lutheran Church of Chula Vista established Pilgrim Lutheran School. On September 9, 1963, the doors were opened, and the school began for students in Kindergarten and grades 1 and 2. In 2016, a beautiful transformation began as Pilgrim Lutheran School officially merged with Lutheran High School of San Diego into one single academic body, spanning from the formative preschool years all the way through the 12th grade.

Why choose Victory for Your Grade-School Student?
Student growth in the classroom
Victory Christian Academy’s primary education, spanning Kindergarten through 8th grade, focuses on the holistic development of its students and creating a foundation of character and knowledge that will propel them to success in high school, college, and life. Strong academics are central to this approach and, in recent standardized testing, Victory’s 2016/17 eighth-graders averaged college-level scores (grade level 13+) in English/Language Arts, Math and Complete Composite categories.
At Victory, we also believe that quality of character is as important as academic growth. We feel it important to keep parents informed not only of growth as a student but growth as a person.
Student growth in athletics
Along with ongoing physical education, we offer a competitive sports program open to all students in grades 4-8 that includes Volleyball and Basketball. Volleyball begins in the Fall and Basketball in the Spring. Practice schedules are sent home to all students interested in playing. These practices are held after school. In our sports program, we focus on skill, but also on Christian conduct and sportsmanship. We hold our players accountable for being great examples in our community and excellent representatives of our school.
