It is time for a new method.

Exciting Times at VCS for 2019-2020!
 
After spending time in prayer and researching the academic impact, VCS will be moving toward using a block schedule in the Upper School for the 2019-20 school year. The change provides the opportunity for a structure to provide stronger academics and academic support for our students. We found:
 
  • Students have more time for reflection and less information to process over the course of a school day.
  • Our research found students retain information longer.
  • Teachers see fewer students during the day, giving them more time for individualized instruction.
  • Extended class times allow for more guided practice and potentially less homework.
  • Rotating Block: Each course remains a year-long course (unlike a semester college course) and classes will alternate days (A day-B day).
  • We will continue to have weekly Chapels.
  • Bible Classes are built into the schedule.
 
We are looking forward to better serving our families with this change.
The decision to transition our Upper School to a block schedule for 2019-2020 was not made hastily. There were prayerful discussions with department chairs, administration, and our board. 

We have spent time weekly since September weighing, studying and designing our plan. One of the most exciting elements has been the collaboration we have sought from schools throughout the region. In fact tomorrow our department chairs will be on a site-visit, observing a school with a similar block schedule.

We went into this venture with open eyes and a spirit committed to best serve our families while staying true to our founding purpose. As this process is unfolding, please partner with us in prayer for wisdom and execution.

More details will be released in the coming weeks and we are excited to share this information with you. 

Thank You! #CNQR
