VCS makes the middle school years the best years yet, by helping students gain confidence, leadership skills, and an awareness of the needs around them and around the world.
Greetings VCMS Families!
We are looking forward to a wonderful school year, filled with new experiences, friendships, and growth. If you are new to our school family, we welcome you. We are confident you’ll be delighted with the middle school experience we offer at VCMS.
At the core of all we teach is an emphasis on a Biblical worldview. We focus on Christian values and character in classroom instruction, at weekly chapels, during Bible classes, and at annual spiritual retreats. We place a strong emphasis on serving our community and the world, and this focus helps our middle school students step outside of what is comfortable and realize that their influence for good can extend beyond their own small circles.
I am constantly amazed by our incredible students. They are such bright, compassionate, courageous souls, and at VCMS, we cherish every one. We feel so blessed to be partners with you in this educational journey.
Get To Know Our Heart
We are thrilled to welcome you to Vacaville Christian Middle School, where we help our students navigate the early teen years and prepare them to excel in high school and beyond. Throughout the middle school years, our students gain confidence, leadership skills, and an increased awareness of our local and global mission fields. We consider it an honor to partner with you in providing support and guidance for your children as they grow academically, spiritually, and athletically.
A Highly Distinguished College-Prep School
Our middle school serves grades 6 through 8 and feeds into Vacaville Christian High School, a highly distinguished college-prep school. We offer a strong list of academic, advanced academic, and elective courses that meet our standard of excellence and help our students gain a solid academic footing in preparation for high school. Because of our high standards, our students regularly perform two to four years beyond grade level in national standard testing. Many Middle School students are able to begin high school level courses in math and foreign language enabling them to enhance their transcripts for college admissions.
Additional Middle School Information
We recognize that working parents have need of quality care for their children before and after school, and we are happy to provide for this need through our extended care program. The focus of our program is to give students an environment that encourages them to learn new things, meet new friends, and have fun “just being a kid.”
We’ve designed our school-age program (for grades K – 8) in such a way as to encourage students to use and expand the knowledge they obtain in school. Our trained and dedicated staff members are on hand to lead your children through homework, arts and crafts, group games, team building activities, and much more. We know your child works hard all day, so at the end of the day we want to make sure that active recreation is a part of the daily extended care experience.
Morning Extended Care: Extended Care hours are 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. VCS Food Services offers breakfast items for students to purchase from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m., during morning Extended Care. Students have an opportunity to participate in table games of small group activities and have a short recess break before starting their school day.
Kindergarten – 8th Grade After-School Extended Care: The K-8th Grade Extended Care program offers a balanced after-school program. Students enjoy a variety of activities as well as study hall time. Study Hall is a quiet time set aside for students to do their homework, review for tests, or read quietly. Friday is “Kids Club Day,” where students will select form a group of activities to learn new skills. VCS Extended Care offers a variety of activities to enhance your child’s learning and social experience.
We know the importance of offering choices, so we have designated Afterschool Enrichment Classes as a part of our students’ choices in offering an array and variety of classes each session. Some of the examples your child can sign up for and experience are as follows:
These classes help students improve social skills, increase levels of self-esteem and confidence, develop leadership and decision-making skills, gain new hobbies and hidden talents they never knew they might have, and much more! Middle School classes include Robotics, Culinary Arts, Painting/Drawing, Beginning Woodworking, Taekwondo, Sewing, etc.

During the month of November, VCS emphasizes the importance of giving back to our local community.
