2023-24 Enrollment for Current Students and Siblings

Current VCS Students and Sibling Enrollment forms due to the office by February 17, 2023 (see attached form or pick one up in the office).

The Teachers, Administration and Board will soon be working on classroom configuration for the 2023-2024 school year.  Each year we put a tremendous amount of reflection, discussion, and love toward determining what is best for each child’s social, emotional, and academic growth. 

Your clarity of commitment to keep your child at the Village Charter School helps us to make the best configuration decision for all our students. Please support us in this process by returning this form no later than Friday, February 17, 2023. 

If we do not receive this form by February 17, 2023, your child’s space will not be held.

2023-24 VCS Open Enrollment for New Families

VCS is accepting applications for the 2023-24 School years in grades UPK-8th grade beginning January 23rd through February 3rd. You can find new student applications here or pick one up at the office. VCS will reach out to applying families for tours in mid-February.

For All Volunteer Drivers

In addition to our current fingerprinting requirement, VCS is now requiring all volunteer drivers to submit a DMV Driver’s Record. These are now easily obtained by creating a DMV account and requesting the document ($2.00 fee). If you are planning to drive on a field trip, please make sure you provide VCS this report.
