Vidalia Heritage Academy/Time for Tots
EXCITING NEWS! VHA is expanding...again!

The preschool ministry at First Baptist Church Vidalia, Time for Tots, is consolidating with us at Vidalia Heritage Academy! Beginning with the 2014 -2015 school year, Time for Tots will become a part of and under the direction and leadership of VHA. Much of the former Time for Tots ministry will remain as is offering half day Mother’s Morning Out programs for crib babies through 2 years of age. The major change is that through VHA we will be offering a full day, 5 day a week, K3 and K4 program. The K3 program will have a half day option.

As a part of VHA, this consolidated Preschool Program will be located in the beautiful Kid’s Bay at First Baptist Church (where Time for Tots currently is housed) complete with a chapel and both indoor and outdoor playgrounds. This is one of the most extraordinary facilities for preschool children anywhere!

There is nothing more precious to a parent than the children God has given them. Our mission and goal is to partner with parents in providing each student with a solid foundation of academic excellence while integrating God’s Word and truth into every aspect of their daily classroom activities. We are deeply committed to this mission and consider it a privilege to be a part of these children’s lives. Our commitment is to provide the finest Christian Education and Care possible.

We believe the best education is that which points our children closer to the source of all wisdom—God Himself. Each child is a precious handiwork. Each has potential, gifts and abilities placed there by God. Each deserves the type of education and guidance that will leave him/her free to develop into the individual that God intended. Christian education should treat each child as an individual, not as a cog in a social wheel.

Open Enrollment for ALL PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS for the 2014-2015 School Year opens the next day, December 11th at 9:00 am.

Below is a program description and tuition schedule. Spots will fill quickly so get your children registered today!

  • On the 12 month plan conveniently billed beginning June 1st, 2014. 
  • On the 10 month plan conveniently billed beginning August 1st, 2014. 

Tuition is due on the 1st of each month, and is late after the 10th*.  If payment is not received by the 10th, a late fee of $25.00 will automatically be charged to the tuition account.  If payment is not received within 45 days of the due date, all students must be kept home until payment is brought up to date. 

If payments are not current by May 10, 2015, students must be kept at home until payment is brought up to date. In addition, school records and report cards will not be released until all financial obligations are paid in full. These policies are necessary to insure Vidalia Heritage Academy is able to meet its financial obligations.


Rather than “nickel and dime-ing” our parents constantly about extra activities and costs during the year, our tuition covers the normal costs of the following:

Instruction and classroom activities, Field Trips (excluding meals), Projects, Special Assemblies, Scrapbooks, Birthdays, the Class Auction Project, Thanksgiving/Christmas Parties, program T-shirts, Yearbook, Red Folders, and internet access to grades, homework, news, and activities.


With the goals of excellence and affordability in mind, we are now utilizing the services of Independent School Management (ISM/FAST) to assist us in our Financial Aid process.  We believe the services of FAST will accurately, thoroughly, and confidentially evaluate the financial status of any family seeking aid, and award tuition assistance accordingly.  The desire of Vidalia Heritage Academy is to offer a Christian Education to as many families as possible regardless of their social or economic status.

Please be advised that there is a limited amount of Financial Aid available for any given year, so applications must be made early.  The Financial Aid that is available through VHA will be awarded to applicants who qualify.  How to apply:

1)     The deadline to apply for all Financial Aid is May 17, 2014.

2)     You must register your child before you are eligible to apply for Financial Aid.

3)     Apply online  -  please visit and click on the Financial Aid Application link (the page will not appear before March 1, 2014) and follow the instructions. FAST will charge you a $36.00 processing fee for the Financial Aid Application.

***Financial Aid is only available for the K – 4 program.
