Our faculty and staff are not just friendly -- they're friends. You can expect to play soccer with your teachers, shoot hoops with them, have dinner with their families, and go to the movies or a play with them. They're also your neighbors. More than 70 percent of VES faculty and staff live on campus with their own families. So your home is their home too. They're part of your family.
The most fundamental element of the teacher-student relationship, or any relationship at VES, is respect. Our teachers show interest, notice the good things that students do, and are attentive to the students. We expect the same from our students. We believe that in a place where respect is a given, people have more freedom to explore, grow, and feel at ease.
More than two-thirds of our students live on campus and enjoy an active activities program. Join the fun! You can sing in the Glee Club, play a sport, participate in student government, lead service projects, plan student activities, or any number of things. There is never a dull moment at VES!
On a typical weekend, you might choose to make a mall run, swim at the pool, play in a faculty-student softball game, ping pong tournament or pool game, ski at the new local Snowplex or travel to Wintergreen Ski Resort, take in a movie, eat at a local restaurant, go to Kings Dominion or enjoy a world-class milkshake in the Basement, the VES student lounge, while hanging out with your friends.
It's not just the activities that make VES a great place to be. It's the people--your fellow students, your teachers and their families and the administration. Since 77 percent of teachers live on campus, you'll get to know them. You'll get to know what it's like to live with other young men and women your age, students who genuinely like and respect each other. The friendships you form will last a lifetime.
Join the VES family as we strive toward full stature: become your best self.
