The VCS brand promise:
VCS is a safe place where Christ is lifted up, and the pillars of faith, academics, fine arts, and athletics define the everyday learning experience. Our amazing faculty and staff live out our mission to provide a Christ-centered education in a nurturing environment that equips young people to excel in life and in service to Jesus Christ.
Vacaville Christian Schools opened in September of 1975 with one set of buildings, a handful of families, a few acres of land, and 35 students. From the start, we employed people who cared about each other and our children. This core group set the course for VCS by defining our mission, vision, and values and by developing a curriculum that challenged us to grow with the times.
Today, we reap the rewards of their choices. VCS owns over 26 acres, enrolls over 900 students, and maintains a nine-million-dollar budget. Our high school building includes state-of-the-art classrooms, three science labs with college level equipment, a 32-unit computer lab, a media-technology center, a radio/TV station, a multi-purpose facility, a band rehearsal room with three practice studios, and a fully staffed kitchen. Our elementary department is proud to have an iPad Learning Center, music room, art room, computer lab, library, and family garden. Our early education department has grown from a small preschool to include an infant center for children as young as 6 weeks old, a toddler center, and a preschool and kindergarten readiness program.
Our athletic facilities include football and soccer fields, baseball and softball fields, a full-court basketball gymnasium, a second full-size basketball court, a weight room, and spacious locker rooms. VCS is a vibrant, caring community, and we’re eager to see what the Lord has in store for us next. As we are faithful with what God has given us, we know that the future holds limitless possibilities.
VCS has a long history of supporting our local community. Our media purchases provide income and support to local newspapers, magazines, billboard companies, the local movie theater, and our local television stations. We often print through local printers with whom we have built strong relationships, and we also use local vendors for T-shirts and some of our other VCS swag. We use local resources whenever we can and invest in local venues for big annual events like the Crab Feed. VCS works hard to demonstrate the love of Christ to everyone we touch in our community, from maintenance teams to local restaurants to our local police force and our beloved military community.
VCS is a major employer for the Vacaville community. Since opening our doors in 1975, we estimate to have provided jobs for well over 1,000 people.
VCS is recognized in our community as a leader in Christian education. We also consistently rate 1st in Solano County SAT scores. Dually accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), VCS exceeds the standards of both the academic and the faith communities.
VCS needs you to help us continue our legacy of excellence and God-centered education to the next generation of students. Our sincere desire is to continue to offer the best spiritual, academic, fine art, technology, and athletic opportunities to our students without the burden of increased tuition during these difficult economic times. Your gift to VCS will be used to continually enhance our tuition offerings, keep up with cutting-edge technology, and offer additional classes while keeping our student-teacher ratio low and our classroom size small.
