A Message from the Superintendent: Jeff Nelson
Hello. I hope everyone is having an awesome summer! I want to take a moment to talk about the upcoming 2017-18 school year, our 16th year here at VCS Ohio. We are undergoing a number of changes this summer as we prepare for the school year. 

We have changed the location of our main offices. We are now conveniently located at 6954 Americana Parkway, Reynoldsburg. It is very close to the I-270/I-70 interchange, so we are going to be a little easier to get to. We are still getting settled, but we are really excited to host an open house/Back-To-School kick-off party at our new offices on  August 9. We'll have food, games and giveaways, so come celebrate with us!

We will be changing sponsors for the upcoming school year. After 15 years with Reynoldsburg City Schools, they will no longer be a sponsor of charter schools. We will initially be sponsored by the Office of School Sponsorship at the Ohio Department of Education. However, we are still negotiating with them to be sponsored by St. Aloysius. Regardless of who sponsors us, we have been assured sponsorship for the 2017-18 school year, so we are moving full steam ahead for the upcoming school year. 

There have been many articles in the newspapers regarding lawsuits, sponsorships, legislation, etc... While there are facts within the articles, the articles can be misleading. Please keep in mind that there are various agendas behind the many of the newspaper articles. I will attempt to always keep you updated on any situations in our newsletters and through our social media accounts. In the meantime, if you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the office. 

Thanks and have an amazing remainder of your summer!

VCS Graduating Class of 2017
We celebrated the accomplishments of the VCS Class of 2017 at our Graduation Ceremony on June 3rd at Ohio Christian University.
Graduates were addressed by their Valedictorian, Bethany Conrad, and Salutatorian, Bradley Lear, as well as VCS's Family and Student Advocate Coordinator, Dr. Tom Edwards
We are so proud of our graduates, many of whom were able to reach a milestone that they previously thought was impossible! Thanks to our dedicated teaching staff and the flexibility offered at VCS, these students were able to achieve their goals while learning valuable life skills such as time management and efficient communication. 
In the words of Dr. Edwards, 
"Go forth and be unforgettable!"
