The VCP Student and Family Handbook is an important resource for the community that outlines policies, procedures, and guidelines for academics, behavior and discipline, general operations, athletics and extracurricular program, and more.

All VCP families are required to acknowledge their receipt and review of the handbook when attending Back to School Nights. As such, families are strongly encouraged to review the contents of the handbook before their designated Back to School Night visit.


The VCP campus is open for the school day beginning at 7:45 a.m. Regular dismissal begins at 2:30 p.m.

To help students and families prepare for the school day, review the sample schedules for the VCP K-6 School and VCP 7-12 School.

It’s important to know that these are samples only. Lunch breaks and other schedule elements may vary by grade level, especially in Lower Academy in Kindergarten thru Grade 6 due to lunch and recess schedules.

VCP has a mandatory dress code for all students.  The dress code puts the focus on academics, not fashion, and creates a sense of school pride and belonging which are important components of our school culture. We ask that families work with school staff to support and enforce the dress code.

School-issued uniform shirts with the logo must be worn at all times. These shirts may be short or long sleeved. Shirts must be tucked in at all times.

Tops can be purchased from SchoolZone:

  • Navy blue uniform shirts
  • A navy blue school sweatshirt or a solid, hoodless sweater with the school logo may be worn in school when it is cold.
  • White, navy and gray turtlenecks or undershirts may be worn under uniform shirts, but not alone. If an undershirt of another color is worn, the student will be asked to remove the shirt.


  • Khaki pants or shorts worn at the waist.
  • Navy tights with khaki skorts, skirts, or jumpers (not more than one inch above the knee)
  • In all grades a belt must be worn if the pants/shorts have belt loops.  Belt loops may not be cut off


  • Students are permitted to wear most types of shoes, however the following things are not allowed: 
  • Open toe shoes
  • Slippers
  • Shower shoes (slides)
