I highly recommend VCS. It has the best of everything we need to give our son the academic, social and spiritual nurturing that he needs to grow and flourish into the man of God that we are raising him to be. The teachers and administrative staff are experienced and caring. There has never been a time that they weren't communicative or responsive. The academics are stellar and there are plenty of extracurricular activities for the kids to participate in. The best part is they do most of their learning in school and they only give 10 minutes worth of homework per night which promotes a balanced life between family, community and school.

I cannot express how pleased we are with this school. Our son is thriving academically and challenged daily in his mind, body and spirit. We could have sent him to the best public elementary school in our township, but wanted him to have the same academic challenge but in a school that supported our values. VCS has exceeded our expectations in all areas! The principal and teachers are to be commended.

VCS is an excellent school! I have two children that currently attend and are getting great results. The classroom sizes are kept small, with a full time aide for kindergarten (in a class of only 14 or 15 kids)!! All of the extras that the school offers make it a great place to learn and enjoy learning. While the school itself is small every space is used to its potential. The academics are far better than anywhere else that we looked. Great Christian foundation for our children!
