Occasionally, we’d like to feature some of AmeriStudent’s participating schools to highlight the fantastic institutions we partner with. This month, we’ll take a look at Village Christian School (VCS).
Located in Sun Valley, California, VCS is a private, non-denominational K-12 school with a beautiful 30-acre campus. The school is fully accredited and has had the great distinction of being named a National Blue Ribbon School by the Department of Education. The VCS high school academic curriculum is unique in that it’s based on the Harvard University model and gives students the opportunity to select one of six areas of interest to concentrate their studies. As a result, VCS students are exceptionally equipped and prepared to enter college upon graduation, and an average of 98% of VCS graduates attend college. Cornell, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Pepperdine, UCLA and USC, are just a few of the excellent universities VCS alumni have attended after completing their high school studies.
The school also boasts a vibrant student life scene, with a competitive CIF athletics program (including an extensive sports medicine team including an orthopedic surgeon, two certified athletic trainers, two undergraduate athletic training students, and 10 high school athletic training students) and numerous fine arts, service, and special interest clubs and activities.
In addition to the long-term, academic year opportunities, AmeriStudent also partners with VCS for a number of short-term camps in both winter and summer. This coming July, three camp groups will arrive to participate in educationally enriching activities, meet some American students, take part in some Southern California sightseeing, and experience and American homestay. Contact us today if you are interested in either participating in or hosting for these camps.
We are grateful for the strong partnership we’ve built with VCS and look forward to introducing many more students (both for camps and for the academic year) to this excellent school.
