Junior High Welcome Guide

Junior High School Events

 

MATH PLACEMENT

Student’s math placement will be based on teacher recommendations, report cards, and standardized test scores. If students have taken or are currently taking a math course outside of their current school, the course transcripts and a letter of recommendation from the teacher, if possible, should be added to the student's application to ensure it is considered when the student’s math placement is determined.

iPAD SET UP

Parents will receive information to assist their child with their iPad setup. The information will be initially sent in the month of August and the communication will continue until the start of school. Click here to view further iPad requirement details

SUMMER PROGRAMS

A variety of optional summer programs will be offered during the months of June through August. These programs may be offered on a daily or weekly basis. They will assist students in the preparation for the coming school year and help familiarize them with our campus. The details will be available on vcs.net, in the month of March.

COURSE SELECTION

All students will have an opportunity to request their courses for next year. This includes their required courses of math, English, history, Bible and P.E. as well as their elective choices, both semester and yearlong.

6th-grade students are required to take 1 semester-long class (Intro to Technology). Students will have online access to the Elective Course Descriptions and will be asked to select preferred and alternative elective courses. Students should take their time making selections. Important Information about Elective Selection: Some electives require students to complete an application or audition in order to qualify for that course. That information will be noted in the Elective Course Descriptions. So please read the description carefully. Students will be notified by email if they are accepted into the class, so that they can make the appropriate elective selections before the deadline.
