Both of my children attend VCS and we are more than happy with the support, education and spiritual development they are receiving. We appreciate the option of extended care and the multitude of programs available both before and after school. Highly recommended!

My son is in the Kindergarten Readiness Summer Program, and it is great. They offer extended AM and PM hours, making my flexible job requirements convenient. Great teachers, awesome, shady playground and I love the hot lunch program that saves me when mornings are running tight. Can't wait for kindergarten next year!

I have 2 children that have attended Vacaville Christian School for the past 4 years. I feel that the teachers have prepared my daughter academically for high school this fall, and my son for middle school. I really like the teacher to student ratio. I am happy they have been at Vacaville Christian School because they are building a strong foundation for their future.

My grandson started attending VCS at the age of 3. I fell in love with the staff and my grandson thrived while the spiritual/academic foundation was being built. I found peace at knowing he was in an environment where he was safe and those teaching him had a biblical view on life. He begins High School this fall. Time has flown by So many dedicated teachers have contributed to his spiritual, social-emotional & academic development; grateful for VCS.

My son has been attending VCS since he was 18 months old and he is now entering 2nd grade. He loves his school and so do we. The teachers and staff are wonderful and really care for each student and their success. I know my child is safe and receiving an excellent education!

I moved my daughter from concord to vacaville and we are so glad and happy. Mrs. Ripley the principle was awesome. My daughter needed extra help in reading and took some classes during the summer and she jumped 2.2 grades. It was an amazing improvement. I would recommend this school if you want your child to have a good education.
