The Warrior Community
WEB - Where Everbody Belongs
The aim of our WEB program, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs,” is to provide opportunities for student leaders to minister, connect, and help provide a welcoming environment to make new sixth, seventh, and eighth graders feel comfortable throughout their first year at VCJH. Built on the belief that students can help other students succeed, the program trains mentors from the seventh and eighth grade Leadership class to be WEB Leaders. These positive role models guide new students through their transition into the VCJH community by praying for each new student, sending them cards of encouragement, and coordinating social interactions centered on building relationships.
By understanding that the transition to a different school is sometimes overwhelming, WEB provides structure for new students to receive support and guidance from peers who have been through the common challenges that middle school poses. Likewise, it serves as an anti-bullying program for our campus by providing a cadre of student leaders who are on the lookout for bullying behavior and know how to effectively intervene, creating a safer school for everybody. Through training programs for our student leaders and by fostering positive interactions between students, WEB effectively embodies the program’s motto: “Together we can make a difference.” Not only does this facilitate a safe community at VCHS, but it prepares and inspires our students to be positive contributors to society in the future as well.
What Parents Say...
Parents remark that the VCJH community—a close-knit group of parents and supporters—has become a part of their families. There is a small town feel within this larger academic environment, and many parents are actively engaged in school activities, volunteer opportunities, parenting classes, and prayer group opportunities. In accordance with our belief that parents are the primary educator of their child, we partner with parents in the education of their children. This relationship fosters a sense of community and a feeling of family on campus. The Parent Teacher Prayer Fellowship organization (PTPF) is a large group of highly active and connected parents who work tirelessly to support the students of VCS. These parents are vital to the VCS community, offering their time and efforts as they volunteer in classrooms and at events.
