WHAT ARE YOUR ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS?

Academic performance and standardized test/screening scores gathered at the student's previous preschool or elementary school along with academic assessments given by VCS prior to enrollment are considered. In some cases a parent and/or student interview is conducted. VCS may also require testing or review of any IEP in place at the time of enrollment.
