A MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL
Our new theology course offerings will also provide a safe context to help our students explore and discover the Christian faith and their spirituality. Those courses include Capstone/Heroes (9 th), Life and Teachings of Jesus/World Religions (10 th), Ethics and Social Justice (11 th) and Capstone (12 th).
Our faculty and staff are also excited to unveil a new advisory program with a mission to create a small family for each student within a single gender small group and to provide each student with an adult mentor who will provide guidance, support and help in the areas of academics, spiritual growth and personal issues.
Finally, VCHS Saints have regularly found ways to engage with community service both because of their character and preparation for college admissions. This coming school year, VCHS is taking service-learning a step further by connecting our students to all types of community service opportunities in the valley and raising the bar with our expectations regarding how much time VCHS students commit to service each school year.
As with students, VCHS can achieve so much when parents volunteer. Not only does parent volunteerism support our school but it provides a healthy example of service to our students. In fact, research clearly shows that parent involvement in their children’s schools (including high school) bears fruit with every aspect (academic, social, behavioral) of their children’s education. We need each parent’s help this coming school year and are asking everyone to commit to at least one volunteer opportunity at VCHS this school year.
I’m really looking forward to seeing the VCHS family together once again, especially our new students and families. It’s gonna be a great day at Vail Christian High School!
