2017-2018 Admissions Timeline 

September: Online applications become available. Presentations are made at many local junior high campuses by VCHS admissions staff, or you can invite us to speak to your parent group.

September - December: Our Student Shadowing Program is a great way to experience life at VCHS. We typically provide two days each week where prospective students can visit for a morning, be hosted by their specially selected Student Ambassador, attend classes, and check out our mid-week Chapel service. Click on the "Shadowing" link for more information on shadowing. Families may also schedule a personal tour of the beautiful VCHS Skyway Campus. For personal tours, contact Alana James, Admissions Coordinator, at ajames@vcs.net, 408-513-2512.

October: Our Fall Open House on Saturday, October 22 offers a spectacular way to tour the campus, meet student leaders, and interact with key teachers and administrators. Click on the "Visit Campus" link for more information on our Open House.

December: Our first Admissions & Placement Testing is on Saturday, December 3. Interviews begin December 7 for applicants that have completed the full application and testing; our admissions office will contact the parent as we determine the application shows the student is ready for an interview appointment. Financial Assistance applications become available mid-December and families may apply for assistance as they await their admissions decision.
