Admission Process

We are pleased you are considering VCS for your child’s Christian education! 


Kindergarten to Grade 7 is full for the 2024/2025 school year.

There are limited spots in highschool, please email admissions to inquire.


PHASE 1: INQUIRY

Keen to join the VCS community?
Are you interested in, or are curious about, what it means to pursue an excellent, Christ-centred education for your child?  Contact: admission@vancs.org with any questions you have.

Sign up for a school tour if you would like to observe VCS in action! Please note that this is an optional step in the admissions process. A tour is helpful especially for those who may be very unfamiliar with the school, with Christian education, or for those who have specific questions that we can answer in a smaller group setting.

PHASE 2: REGISTRATION

The admissions team will create your personal online application package. The package will reach you via the email address that you provided on the inquiry form.  Invitations to apply will begin starting October 17th.

Completed applications should be submitted together with a $200 non-refundable online application fee. 

Please note the submission cut-off dates by grade levels. Applications submitted after these dates will be placed in the wait pool and will only be considered if there are remaining spaces.

Submission Cut-off Dates
Elementary (Kindergarten): To be announced
Elementary School (Gr 1-2): To be announced
High School (Gr 8-12): when all available spaces are filled

Interviews will be scheduled for applicants via email. These include an in-person family interview with the Principal, and a student assessment session with the student and one of our learning support teachers. 


PHASE 3: APPLICATION RESULTS 

Each application is carefully and prayerfully considered. We want each child who enters our school to thrive. Several factors influence our decision process to accept an applicant. This includes grade level capacity, and the availability of school resources to support the student well. The admissions team will explain wait pool options for students we are unable to accommodate for that school year. If you would like to review our Admissions Policy at any point in the process, please contact our Admissions Office. 

An admissions acceptance letter and an online registration package will be issued to successful applicants. In order to secure the applicant’s spot in VCS, the admissions office must receive: 

  1. The completed registration package by the deadline indicated in the letter, and 
  2. A $800 tuition deposit. (These funds will be applied towards the student’s tuition).

The applicant is officially registered following both of these steps!


PHASE 4: LEAD UP TO THE SCHOOL YEAR 

You will be informed of your tuition invoice payment options by the admissions team.  

A welcome newsletter is mailed out by the end of August with information that will help you and your child(ren)prepare for life at VCS. We look forward to welcoming you to our community!


Please feel free to reach out to admissions@vancs.org if you have questions during this process. Thank you for your interest in joining the VCS community!
