How to Get Involved
For 23 years, parents, grandparents, alumni and friends have supported Vail Christian High School’s culture of philanthropy from giving to taking an active role in our school. A long-standing community of Saints with a shared passion for one purpose: to provide students with the best education possible. It has been our goal since 1998.
Gift of Time and Talent
Vail Christian High School is grateful for those who are able to volunteer on campus, on committees and on the field or court. From Parent Association to Theater parents, our families come together. No role is too big or too small.
Gift of Treasure
Like most independent schools, tuition income does not fully fund the true cost of educating each child at Vail Christian High School. Rather, it is supplemented by charitable gifts. Thanks to friends like you, Saints go further than they ever imagined. Every act of service or financial gift expresses a commitment to Vail Christian High School’s long standing goal: providing the best education possible. By investing in VCHS, you can be sure your gift will make a lasting difference in the lives of our students.
Tuition Angel Fund
As a Tuition Angel, you directly support VCHS students and provide hope and opportunity. Over 50% of our students receive sliding-scale tuition assistance and your gift ensures that one of these students can receive a strong Christian education – preparing them for college and placing them on a trajectory to lead lives of ‘purpose, service, and leadership.’
VCHS is deeply committed to finding ways for eligible students, regardless of family circumstances, to call our school home. While some students are preparing to become the first college graduates in their families, all Vail Christian High School students are immersed in a school culture that values faith and character.
Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere Fund
We’ve worked hard to create an exciting future for, and beyond, the 2020-21 school year and made a major technology investment in our classrooms to accelerate our ‘cutting-edge’ momentum. We believe so strongly in learning in community and the highly relational nature of teaching and learning. Our students and teachers deserve the best technology to facilitate human connection that’s such an integral part of school. We will do whatever it takes to ensure our students and teachers can be together whether on campus, at home, or anywhere.
A gift t0 the Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere Fund ensures our 17 classrooms have all of the technology they need for a rich learning environment for students on campus or students ‘anywhere.’ This investment is necessary for this COVID-19 school year, but more importantly, it’s an investment in VCHS’ future – a direction where the best schools are headed. We are energized to grow and enrich our school’s educational resources. Your gift is part of that indispensable, community-wide investment in the education of each VCHS student. Please join us at this exciting time as we create a bright future for VCHS teachers and students.
