Every day I learn more about the extraordinary achievements of our student body, from the youngest Kindergartners to the Senior Class in our Upper School. I am profoundly impressed. I am privileged to be part of such a fine faculty that daily puts forth remarkable efforts as advocates and educators. Inclusivity is at the heart of day-to-day life at Vanguard. We invite you to join our community to experience the difference our institution is making. Thank you for supporting Vanguard.
