Admissions

Welcome to the VCS Admissions process!

VCS is in the world-changing business…Province-wide testing and increased inquiries indicate that VCS is providing an education to take note of. We are preparing students who will be equipped to meet the needs and demands of tomorrow’s workplaces, communities, and churches. From Kindergarten to Grade 12, students are welcomed into our Christ-centred community and encouraged to find their unique role in God’s kingdom.

Important Enrolment Details

  • Applications for Admission are accepted year round for new enrolment, but space is limited in some of our classes. To ensure your place in the admissions process, please contact us today!
  • To begin the enrolment process for K to 12, follow this Enrolment Inquiry Link to send to our admission office.

Vernon Christian School uses the following criteria for assessing capacity for enrolment;

  • Class/grade size & composition
  • Children of VCS Staff
  • Sibling of current VCS families
  • Staffing model – teaching and educational support staff
  • Student support needs
  • Facility & resource limitations
  • Full and Associate membership
  • Families transferring from another Christian school
  • Families looking at full or partial family enrolment (applying for all or some children)
  • VCS Alumni families

Wait groups are available when a student/family has been approved, but placement is not available in their specific grade. A student will stay in the wait group for the current school year that they applied for and if a placement becomes available the family will be contacted. Once that school year comes to an end all students will be removed from the wait group and families will need to re-apply for enrolment for the following year.
