Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,


     Welcome to a new school year! It has been an absolute privilege to serve as your Principal this past year. I am delighted to have another opportunity to work with each of you as we strive for excellence. This year’s theme is College Bound! Global Ready! We Are Infinite Possibilities! Our focus this year is Building A Strong VECA Community! We cannot achieve this without you. We can only have a strong VECA community together.

     This year we will continue to celebrate the many wonderful things happening at Valdosta Early College Academy. This past year we celebrated the following:


  • Class of 2016 Accomplishments:
  • 12 out of 15 Honor Graduates;
  • 337 Total College Credits;
  • College Signing Day-All 15 students accepted into a 4-year college/university.


  • 8th Grade Students (Class of 2020) Accomplishments:
  • Earning a total of 122 high school credits.


  • Harper Hall (6th Grader)-District Spelling Bee Winner.


  • 11th Grade students tutored 5th grade students at SL Mason.


  • Muse-Day Tuesday Fine Arts Club (over 60 VECA students are club members).


     This is our ninth year in existence and VECA has continued to make its mark in the Valdosta community. We look forward to graduating our third class of seniors in the spring, the Class of 2017!


 I am sure by working together we can continue to create a culture of strong, caring relationships and academic excellence.


With Excitement,


Dr. Mae McKinney
