We can’t wait to celebrate with all of our graduates and honor their accomplishments in May. Please keep the date of your previously scheduled graduation ceremony open for us to honor our graduates.
Class of 2020: Friday, May 22
8th Grade: Tuesday, May 19
Kindergarten: Thursday, May 14
We are working on several different formats to celebrate our graduates on those dates but we will not be able to finalize a format until we get into May and can evaluate with the restrictions in place at that time.
We will celebrate with you on those days in a way that keeps you and your family safe – whether that be six feet apart, virtually, or something in-between. We will also seek to identify a time and format this summer to gather together without restrictions to celebrate and honor our graduates together in person.
We’ll have more details on those ceremonies as we get closer to the graduation dates. We thank you for your patience and support as we seek to celebrate and honor our graduates in the best possible way given the unfortunate circumstances we find ourselves in this year.

College Acceptances and Scholarships
It’s that time of year! Please be sure to submit which schools you have been accepted to and any scholarships that you’ve been awarded.
You can visit www.valleychristianaz.org/college-acceptances-scholarships to easily submit that information.
Senior and 8th Grade Trips
VCS will be issuing refunds for the trips cancelled due to COVID-19. Please understand that these trips have required a cash outlay on the school’s part and will require us to receive refunds from our vendors in order to be able to return money to our parents. We anticipate refunds taking 4-6 weeks depending upon the speed of our vendors. Due to the volume of refunds we are processing as well as or desire to maintain accurate record keeping, VCS will cash any checks already received towards these events and then process a separate refund. This process ensures that everyone is treated fairly and no one is overlooked.
