Spiritual Growth
At Austin Christian Vocational Academy, the Bible is vitally important. It is our belief that continual Bible study, applying what is learned to real life situations, role playing and modeling, classroom bible activities, and daily prayer with our students will be beneficial to their growth and happiness as they mature into adulthood.
The second Thursday of each month, students attend our in-school Chapel for prayer, song, student bible exposition, recitations, oratorical practice, and church etiquette.
 
As our students reach middle school age, they will be administered our temperament profile to determine their temperament. This assessment allows parents, teachers, and administrators to gain a better understanding of our students’ behavior. It allows us to know their Spiritual gifts and where God wants them in church, school, and society.
 
History
Austin Christian Vocational Academy was founded in August of 2000 and is in its fourth year of operation. The private school is named after Mrs. Annie Mae Austin, a mid-twentieth century African American woman who typified the ideals of the school in her belief that faith in God, hard work, and education are the keys to success in life.


Mrs. Annie Mae Austin instilled these ideals in her children, her daughter, Mrs. Audrey Austin White, who became a church leader, committed educator, and dedicated mother; and her son, Mr. Alfred Austin, an educator, athlete, and respected athletic director. After three generations of Austins, Mrs. Annie Mae Austin’s grand-daughter, Dr. V. Robinson Coleman, established the private school in her honor. Austin Christian Vocational Academy can be best described as a primary educational development institution. The key strengths of this institution are an innovative curriculum, state-of-the-art technology, strong teaching, administrative and parental support. God is at the center of the school, and therefore is part of the teaching and learning experience at Austin Christian Vocational Academy.
