Children must be taught how to think, not what to think. At VCS children are taught academics along with Christian principles of faith. But we never teach children what to think.
Jesus is taught as being the greatest man that ever lived. But we don't indoctrinate children. Comparative analysis of historical figures shows Him to be just that man. We allow children to decide for themselves who He is.
High school academics form the core of college applications, so it's important to focus on them. We are an Internationally Accreditied school. The Vermont Method of learning ensures maximizing high school academics for the most impact on college applications.
Online and blended learning have become common educational strategy in education. Both have their pros and cons. VCS offers online learning for those students whos needs are met thru this education model.
Vermont's K-12 formula for Student Success
Vermont's K-12 Education Features
Students at Vermont are not only sheltered from the world's influences, but also taught principles from God's Word in their daily devotions and school work.
Self-discipline, responsibility, and self-motivation are among the benefits of an environment that is both nurturing and structured.
- Self Discipline
At Vermont we're proud of our rigorous academic program. All students can succeed because they are not tested until they've mastered the subject material.
Our montessori approach to learning allows students to excel because, we believe, every child has God-given gifts. It's up to us to discover and nurture these gifts.
Merits as Motivators
Using the award-winning ACE education program, our students learn to set their daily goals and are paid "Merits" upon completing their goals. The merits are positive motivators and are used at our "Merit Store".
- Pencils, erasers
- Free Dress days
At Vermont, your child is in a safe and disciplined environment.
It can be an exciting time in a student's life, as well as a difficult time. Bullying tends to peak between the ages of 10 and 13, and many students find that the academic challenges of middle school are far more difficult than in elementary school.
