The Plan

"...thou shalt keep the commandments of The Lord thy God,
to walk in his plan, and to fear Him."
Deuteronomy 8:6

So, what is the plan to take the path toward excellence, integrity and equity in the arena of home education? Of course with the believer, the main path is a life of righteousness in Christ and reaching the end of that path takes a lifetime. Training, teaching and discipleship are the keys to unlocking the door into godly manhood and godly womanhood. Training children to be obedient and submissive to authority, if done very early in the child's life, will make the teaching of academics, life skills and extracurricular lessons a joy. While training and teaching are taking place, discipleship should be the motivation.

As children are trained in character, such as attentiveness, cooperation, friendliness, gratefulness, honesty, joyfulness, kindness, to name just a few, the teaching and learning process becomes a delight. God speaks of children being an inheritance from Him and as His commands for child training are consistently followed he/she will truly bring gladness to the heart of the parent.

It is so important to acquire the skills needed to function in the world and, of course, the basics of Reading, Writing and Math are all foundational to higher learning. As the student gains confidence in his/her acquired skills and knowledge, each proceeding year they will welcome more challenges.

VCSS offers a plethora of guidance procedures from Kindergarten through the end of high school. Each advancing year brings more challenges as the details of content subjects are studied, allowing for delight-directed education. One of the major attracting aspects of VCSS is the flexibility of curriculum choice and annual, state mandated basic skills test selection or evaluation. The required VCSS registration, quarterly report and graded student forms are simple to follow, so as to make obligations of reporting less strenuous.

The VCSS Handbook includes applicant information, testing information, scope and sequence, history of VCSS, and all forms required for the school year.
