How many years did you attend VCS?
What are your best memories from your time at VCS?
The best part about VCS is the atmosphere that it provides for every student. In every section of the school, the staff and faculty care for and mentor each student. Beyond instruction, VCS’s teachers meet every child at their level, helping them to learn and grow as individuals. I can honestly say that my teachers played huge roles as mentors in my life, and they have encouraged me as I have grown into the person I am today. The atmosphere at VCS also is attributed to its small size. With two hundred students in our high school, I have had so many more opportunities here than I would have had in any local public school. I have played with seventeen different sports teams across my four years here, I have been the President of two service clubs, coordinated blood drives, and served as Student Body President. I would not have had the opportunity to do so many extracurricular activities anywhere else.
Did you grow in your personal faith as a result of your experiences at VCS?
When I came to VCS as a 9 year old, I simply knew who God was, but thanks to VCS, my whole life has been changed. From my first year in elementary school through my senior year, the opportunities I have had for community prayer, fellowship, and Bible classes—where I’ve gotten to dive deep, define my faith, and know the character of God—have all helped me to build my faith. I am now a young woman who’s grounded on a foundation of my Christian beliefs, and Jesus is at the center of my life.
