During the board meeting on 3/25, your VCS Board of Directors approved a recommendation from your VCS Leadership & COVID Response Teams to pivot to full-day In-person learning (Monday-Friday) for all interested VCS families/students beginning on Monday, April 5th. We believe the new CDC guidelines and encouraging state and local metric trends, combined with the safety measures we already have in place at both campuses, can allow this in-person conversion to occur. Remote learning for the remainder of the school year will continue as an option for any VCS family that is uncomfortable with returning to In-person instruction.

At VCS, we are aware of the challenges many families face when trying to get their children to school and make it to work on time. We have a solution for you!
As early as 6:30 am, we will provide a safe place for students to come to school early to read, study, or work on other tasks. Additionally, from 3:15 pm-6:00 pm, students are welcome to stay after school to work on homework, have some outside time, or play games.
These services are FREE for our K-8 students. Yes...you read that right...FREE!
Regular instructional time will begin at 7:50 am, and will end at 3:15 pm for K-6 (East), K-8 (West), and 3:24 pm for 7-12 (East).
Vanguard Classical School exists to build young citizens who demonstrate Honor, Achievement, World Citizenship, and Kindness.
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.
