February 26, 2019: The Importance of Fine Arts in Christian Education
Christian education endeavors to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty. Within creation, we find these manifested in art and music. Not only does the pursuit of fine arts develop a student’s God-given abilities, but it develops within our student’s creative faculties which breathe life into a moral imagination.

February 6, 2019: Technology – Teaching Our Children How to Navigate a Screen Obsessed World
Technology is a terrific tool, yet terrible master. Our children have never known a life without the internet, cell phones, commercial-free cartoons, and access to information at the touch of a screen. It’s clear that our world is digitally driven and that technology is here to stay, so how do we teach our children to set healthy boundaries and use it wisely?

With our computer labs, iPads, SMART boards, growing robotics program, and learning management system, we have the ability to provide technological tools for our students that help them excel. Additionally, we are currently evaluating the addition of 3D printing labs.

January 18, 2019: Pro-Life: Why It’s Important and How to Share with Your Children
Today, thousands of people across the country will join the March for Life rally to take action and fight for the rights of the unborn. Because I support the conviction that life in the womb is worthy of protection, I am moved to share my heart with you. At VCS, our foundational mission is to provide an exceptional, Christ-centered education. With that overarching mission in mind, it is our responsibility to educate our children on what it means to be pro-life and why it matters. This isn’t just a political stance. And it’s more than just a religious view. My hope is to create meaningful conversation amongst our staff, parents, and students on what it means to embrace a biblical worldview, and why the support of pro-life is a critical expression of a Christ-centered perspective.
Here are a few ideas of what to share with your child(ren) today: READ MORE>>>
