The student body is currently composed of approximately 350 American and 50 international students. The faculty and staff are committed to develop and instill within each student a love for God and family as well as respect for others. The AVCS program stresses a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as the foundation of Christian education with an emphasis on biblical principles to govern personal behavior, communication, actions, and perception of society. AVCS also offers several programs to students from the international community who desire to pursue education in the United States. Antelope Valley Christian School offers the following dynamic and challenging programs for students from other countries who desire an American education experience: Full Academic School Year Program (Late August - Early June) This program is structured to equip international students with the English language skills and academics required for college success within the United States. AVCS believes total immersion in English at school and in the Residential Center is the best way to master the language. Students participate in all aspects of school life including the academic program, sports, and interaction with American students. This approach rapidly builds English skills.
