The PRE-VET COLLEGE PREPARATORY PROGRAMS at SVIPA are a very individualized and unique approach to education that allows both a solid student and the 'very gifted' student to use their passion for animals to reach their 'true' academic potential which is often times far beyond goals (both personal and academic) that they ever dreamed possible. Middle school and high school students are accepted in the college preparatoy school.    We work with all of our College prepatory students to be tested for college entry while still in high school.  As students progress into the High School level of academics at SVIPA they will be able to choose a Pre-Vet Tract or Pre-Psychology Tract as their major or minor for High School Graduation. Through partnering with several colleges, SVIPA College Preparatory High School students have the opportunity to not only prepare for college, but to earn college credits while in high school.
SVIPA accepts a maximum of 12 students per year due to our hands on approach to learning, our international travel, and family styled ranch life. Students accepted to SVIPA are required to make a minimum commitment of 2 years.  Some students attend SVPIA from middle school through-out their highschool graduation.  Dedicated students typically achieve multiple college credits throughout their high school years and graduate with scholarship offers due to their SVIPA education experience.  To apply or to schedule a visit to tour our facility, contact the school office at 423-554-4677.

The College Prep. Life is an Unforgettable Ride
Philosophy of Education 5th-12th
We believe that in order to "train a child in the way he should go" the learning experience must encompass all aspects of life-spiritual, moral, social, cultural, political, historical, scientific and academic. We believe all of these aspects must be grounded in a Biblical World View in order to ensure that "when he is grown he will not part from it".
We believe in striving for excellence in this style of Christian Education by motivating and training a child to "educate himself". We believe that one of best ways to motivate children to "educate themselves" is for the student to be 'hands on'with their learning by exploring and experimenting with the real world around them in respect to science, math, physics, technology, politics, our society and other cultures. We believe this method of education encourages each student to probe deeper, think harder, and understand at a higher level; while creating an excitement to present their discoveries, results, and opinions to others.
We believe that the Christian student must understand that just as God designed every action to have a reaction in regards to science, also every personal action will have a consequence in regards to life. Therefore, education must not only guide a student through his/her academic years, but it must have a foundational effect that carries on into his/her business and personal life as a mature Christian adult.
We believe that this philosophy of education will bring forth great leaders of tomorrow who will share their faith in Christ, spread the gospel, and help lead our country back to the conservative Christian social & political values that America was founded upon by our forefathers.
