School Notes:

Our Vision

To ignite and instill confidence and skills to excel in a global and changing environment

Mission Statement
Virginia Chance School is an independent school that serves children ages 2 through 5th grade. As a diverse community of learners, we commit to excellence and respect through a joyful, challenging and progressive program. With an intentional whole-child approach to education, each individual reaches his/her cognitive, social, emotional, moral and physical potential. Chance students graduate as confident, inquisitive learners prepared to engage productively with their world.

Philosophy Statement

Childhood is a continuous and unfolding process. All children advance through stages of development cognitively, socially, emotionally, morally and physically, and benefit from developing positive attitudes about learning and living in a democratic society. Therefore, at Virginia Chance School:

We believe in creating a learning environment that is welcoming and provides a culture of mutual respect. Our environment instills a joy of learning by encouraging and supporting curiosity, discovery, creativity and an open exchange of ideas through collaboration and cooperation.

We believe learning and experience are inseparable. Day by day we empower children to construct knowledge through active engagement, hands-on learning and social interaction. Learning opportunities are relevant because children benefit from making connections to the real world.

We believe in guiding children with dignity and respect. By using positive discipline and respectful language, Chance students are empowered to solve problems and to become responsible citizens.

We believe children benefit from having a voice. Choices and decision-making blended with routines and expectations create a culture for optimal learning and develop the foundation of habits, skills and attitudes.

We believe in nurturing self-reliance and self-confidence daily. A strong sense of self is vital to being an engaged learner and healthy participant in one’s learning journey.

We believe that teachers, as facilitators, guide, support and challenge learners to work toward reaching their full potential in all areas of development.

We believe in honoring the uniqueness of each individual. By acknowledging and celebrating diversity, we encourage the acceptance of ourselves and others while enriching the learning environment.

We believe in establishing a sense of community by having a partnership between home and school. Together educators, administrators and parents contribute to the life of the school in ways that benefit young children.

I hear, and I forget.

I see, and I remember.

I do, and I understand.
