Victory Chapel subsidises the cost of tuition for its church members who choose to attend St Alban’s Classical Academy. In the Anglican tradition, Victory Chapel makes education a central part of its ministry.

In that tradition, St Alban’s Classical Academy provides a classical education from early years through age 11.
Statement of Faith
The doctrinal basis of faith of St Alban’s Classical Academy shall be the fundamental truths of Christianity including:
- We believe there is one living and true God, ever-lasting; of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; the Maker, and Preserver of all things both visible and invisible. One God in three Persons, of one substance, power, and eternity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
- We believe that the Son, begotten of the Father from before time, and of one substance with the Father, took on human nature in the womb of the blessed Virgin: so that two whole and perfect Natures—the Godhead and Humanity—were joined together in one Person.
- We believe that Christ truly rose again from the dead, and took again his body, with flesh, bones, and all things pertaining to Man’s nature; with which he ascended into Heaven, and there he is seated until he returns to judge all Men at the last day.
- We believe the 66 Canonical Books of Holy Scripture contain all things necessary to salvation: so that whatever is not read in them, nor may be proven by them, is not to be required of any one, nor to be thought necessary for salvation.
- We believe that Original Sin does not consist in merely following the example of Adam, but that it is the corruption of the Nature of every one so that the flesh always lusts against the spirit; and therefore that every person born in this world deserves God’s wrath and damnation.
- We believe that we are declared righteous before God only on account of the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not by our own works or merits: that we are justified by Faith only.
- We believe that whilst Good Works cannot atone for our sins, still they are pleasing and acceptable to God in Christ, and do spring out necessarily of a true and living Faith; insomuch that by works a living Faith may be as known as a tree is known by its fruit.
- A fuller statement of faith may be found in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, the doctrinal standard of the Anglican Church.
