Agility in Education.
We provide a synchronized classroom experience, whether home or campus-based. Our recent investment in high-tech classrooms, keeps us innovative and agile, always reaching toward our mission of excellence to serve our students and the Saints community at the highest level.
All students participate in the AP program and most students take 8 AP classes (15 currently offered) during their high school career at VCHS. Many are awarded the prestigious AP Scholar designation. Dual Enrollment (DE) courses are offered through Colorado Christian University and University of Colorado – Colorado Springs.
College Readiness &
College counseling begins on day one. With a full-time, college counselor and customized plan for each student, our students are positioned for acceptances to their top choice schools, and earn merit scholarships that significantly reduce costs.
Average ACT score from the Class of 2021 was 26, (national average is 21) positioning students for acceptances from some of the most selective U.S. colleges and universities.
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.
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.
United around a passion for providing students with inspiring, engaging, and empowering learning opportunities in STEM
education and careers, VCHS is proud to be a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) school. PLTW courses in Engineering, Biomedical and Computer Science complement their AP counterparts with more experiential, hands-on and transformative learning experiences.
The Visual Arts department offers introductory and AP Studio Art courses in our large and well-equipped art studio. Focusing on the Elements of Art & Principles of Design, students gain the foundation to be creative and explore their own ideas.
A signature feature of school life at VCHS is found in the Performing Arts. During the 2020-21 school year, the theater program produced Disney's Newsies the Musical. Our theater director also serves as our choral director with a long history of students entering the state vocal competition.
