MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to equip every Vaux graduate to find and walk their pathway to a successful career. With small communities, internships, and project-based learning, we will educate one student at a time in a community of learners.

VISION STATEMENT 

We seek to provide students with a highly personalized educational program that applies learning in real-world contexts, cultivates deep sustaining relationships with peers, parents and the community while promoting the successful graduation of students. We will ensure students possess the academic, social, and workplace competence to find high-quality employment they enjoy, to successfully engage in postsecondary learning opportunities, and to productively “give back” both globally and locally.
