Get to Know VES Open House

This first session introduces you to the school and our commitment to our students. You’ll learn who we are and what learning and life at VES is all about. While getting a feel for a school through a virtual session isn’t the same as in-person, we hope you will feel our sense of community and opportunities that VES can offer.


Intellectual Playfulness: The VES Academic Advantage + College Counseling

Hear from Academic Dean Mimi Csátlos and several faculty members about VES’s academic philosophy, based on the concept of intellectual playfulness. Our faculty make learning fun and engaging, use a wide variety of teaching and learning activities to keep classes dynamic, and challenge students to be curious and innovative thinkers and producers. It’s an exciting way to learn! You'll also learn about our four-year, top-notch college counseling program.
