Please plan on attending the event of the century — literally! VES is kicking off its 100th year, and we want you to be a part of the festivities. Mark your calendar for September 30 - October 2, 2016.
Every year, all VES students study a Shakespeare play. At the conclusion, VES’ English Department hosts a themed dinner and activities, followed by an all-school trip to attend a world-class performance at the American Shakespeare Center. This year, through a stroke of interdisciplinary genius, the school combined their English studies with an exercise in business management and filmmaking. See the results.
VES is a blend of young men and women, both day and boarding students, from all over the United States and the world. Our campus is a meeting place for diverse perspectives and global cultures where students and faculty learn from and respect each other.
VES’ mission remains true to when the school was founded 100 years ago — to know students individually and help each grow Toward Full Stature. Intentionally small, VES offers both the programs and vibrant community to develop well-rounded students — scholars, athletes, arts enthusiasts and confident, globally aware leaders.
We love nothing more than sharing our VES story and showing off our beautiful campus in Lynchburg, Virginia. Contact us to schedule an indiviudal tour of VES and meet our students, faculty and coaches.

Kids at our 3D Modeling & Printing camp—a collaboration among the Academy Center of the Arts, VES and Lynchburg College's Christopher Otwell—loved the hands-on learning about one of the fastest-growing techniques being used today in everything from engineering to robotics and industrial design to theatre design. During the camp, they learned about 3D softward programs, how to prototype concepts online and see their projects come to life, ranging from an iPhone case to jewelry to a model home.

Each year in early June, nearly 13,000 college and secondary school AP faculty from around the world gather in several U.S. locations according to subject matter, where they spend the week evaluating and scoring thousands of written essays. The AP scores rate each student’s college-level achievement. VES is proud to have five faculty serving as “readers” in the College Board program.
