VES Parents Council

Our VES Parent Council Welcomes You!

Our goal is to help keep you in the know about school. We post to everything you need to the online Parent Resource Board, which you access by logging in above. There you will find key information—important forms, academic schedules, the Student & Parent Handbook, as well as other items of interest. You can also pay your bill online and update your profile and your student's health information.

Visit here and your VES Resource Board often to ensure you don't miss anything. Consider this your one-stop location for all VES parent news.

VES Parents Council: Who We Are

The VES Parents Council is an active and vibrant group of day and boarding parents who volunteer to support the school in its mission of guiding students toward full stature.
Throughout the year, parents come together to assist with the school’s athletic and arts programs, student life, campus beautification, faculty appreciation, and admissions and development projects. They play a key role in events such as Casino Night, Hanging of the Greens, and Fall and Spring Family Weekends, and they open their doors for admissions and alumni gatherings at locations throughout the world. Their annual auction raises funds that help to support a number of projects throughout the campus.
VES parents play a valuable and important role in our community, and we are so very pleased to have their support.

Join Us at the Parents Council Auction

Friday, October 12 
5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in Hight Library

Mark your calendar for this evening of fun, silent auction, spirits and hors d’oeuvres! It is a great evening that kicks off our Fall Family Weekend at VES—a perfect time for day and boarding parents to get together with our faculty and staff and visit while bidding on fabulous items to raise money for our school.

Bid on fabulous items, from trips, to beautiful artwork, reserved graduation parking, parties, perks for the students, tickets to ACC football games and baskets filled with all types of goodies and services, just to name a few!  We will also have a 50/50 raffle and you don’t have to be present to win.

Where does this money go? With proceeds from the Auction, the Parents Council is able to provide funding to enhance the student and faculty experience at VES. We support the priority needs identified by the school, including classroom renovations, essential teaching tools and equipment, and faculty housing improvements.

Donate an Auction Item
If you would like to donate an item, service, trip or vacation home, we would love to set that up for you. All donations are tax deductible and there is no item too big or small! Follow this link to enter your item or you can contact us directly. We will be happy to take care of the details.
