School Reviews

Good SiteN_X_D_S.
My children have attended SVCS for 10 years now. We couldn''t be happier about the academic, spiritual and social experience they''ve had. They are truly cared for and surrounded by a faculty that motivates and encourages them. I can''t imagine my children anywhere else, I am SO thankful for this school!
