Dear VCS Families
Announcing the LAUNCH of the VCS Online Learning Hub.  
This site is designed to ensure transparency and continued access into the learning opportunities during school closures.  The goal for this Online Learning Hub is to share VCS expectations when students are working at home. Parents and students can both use this site to easily find directions, so work can be completed at home with support as needed from VCS teachers.  This site will allow our community to view grade and subject level weekly overviews, instructions for accessing online curriculum sites, tips for accessing Google Classroom, resources from the Florida Department of Education, and answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
The Villages Charter School has established a new tech support line for parents and students. Call 352-259-6888 Monday - Friday (7:30 am - 4:30 pm). 
We look forward to sharing this online learning with all of you.

VHS Academic Days

At VHS our mission is to provide quality learning opportunities for all students.  Academic Saturday School, a.k.a. A-Day, is designed to help students achieve success in academics. We will be hosting A-Day frequently throughout the school year. We encourage students to attend A-Day who are in need of assistance in core classes, need time to collaborate on group projects with others, or simply need a place to get work done.  Below is a link to our VHS A-Day registration.  When you register for A-Day, we are able to ensure we have the appropriate tutors for your request; however, as always, registration is not required. Students may arrive anytime between 8-10 for academic assistance.
