Elementary Faith & Community

Student praying as the school day begins

Spiritual Formation

We take pride in providing a warm and nurturing Christ-centered community for our students, parents, and faculty. 

VCES students experience cross-curricular biblical integration, take Bible as a core academic subject, and attend chapel where wisdom is shared through storytelling once a week.  Students learn to be young peacemakers, good citizens, and friends through community service projects.  VCES also supports healthy families and builds a parent community through campus activities for the whole family, such as pancake breakfasts, family fun nights, and other events throughout the year.

Spiritual Life

  • Biblical perspective integrated into every subject
  • Bible classes focused on teaching stories, thematic concepts, and Bible verse memorization
  • Fun and lively weekly chapels that include student-led prayer, a time of praise and worship, and messages to help students grow in their relationship with God 
  • Service opportunities in the past include writing letters to members of our military, participating in the fire department’s toy drive, donating bug nets, creating care packages for the local community, donating turkeys to City Team, and coordinating a food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank
  • Character education alongside academics with biblical foundations and practical ways to live by faith daily
  • Care for the whole student, which weaves spiritual, social, and emotional well-being into their experience at VCES

Student & Family Connectedness

Students participate in a variety of group learning experiences throughout the school year, such as field trips and after-school offerings; these provide opportunities for connection with fellow VCES students as well as potential mentor relationships with students from the Skyway Campus. We believe that these experiences are essential in the process of nurturing a strong sense of safety and belonging within our community.

Some of our community events include:

  • New Family Warrior Welcome
  • Pancake Breakfast
  • High School Sports Nights
  • Market Day
  • Family Fun Night
  • Third Grade Grandparents’ Day
  • Knight of Passage/Night to Shine (Junior High Transition Celebration) 
  • Donuts with Dad
  • Muffins with Mom

Parents are invited to get involved at VCES by joining our Parent Teacher Prayer Fellowship (PTPF).
