We often are asked what distinctive programs we offer at VES. While we believe it is truly the full VES experience that sets us apart from other schools, we highlight a number of programs that we are especially proud of offering and that are not available at or are unmatched by other schools. These academic programs offer students an important foundation to their education—like our 9th Grade ARC Collaborative. Others provide interdisciplinary advanced study to excite students ready to explore beyond our standard curriculum.
We deliver a robust four-year program in Computer Science which, combined with Robotics, Video Production and our weekly Bishop Radio program, provide our students the opportunity to develop directly applicable technology skills. And immersive travel programs expand students' minds and cultural experiences, preparing them to navigate successfully in our dynamic world.
Add to this list our College Counseling office—one of the best teams and programs in the business. We augment our learning through programming of renowned speakers and artists, who visit campus, host workshops and master classes, bringing their insights, perspectives and expertise to our VES community.
And we designed Parent University—a program we serve up online throughout the year and on campus during the fall and spring—to help parents stay current on hot topics relevant to navigating the teenage years.
