School Culture & Community

We’re grateful for our community. It's like a small family and one of the reasons you'll discover why VCHS is such a special place. We seek to foster a school culture in which love is primary and respect and understanding for others’ backgrounds and experiences is non-negotiable.

Spirituality

Spiritual formation is also an important component of a VCHS education. Understanding that every student is uniquely designed, we desire that students explore their own faith or spirituality. Our community gathers together each week for a chapel service and theology courses are also part of a student’s experience. Our desire is to help each student develop his or her whole self.
