    I absolutely loved getting to be a part of the community at VES. We really are one giant family at that school. Not only is there no grade divisions amongst the students, but you get very close with the faculty to the point that a lot of us dog sit or baby sit for faculty. To anyone considering going to VES, I recommend staying overnight and keeping an open mind. Most students have stories that started out like "at first I didn't want to go to VES, but now I couldn't imagine not coming here". Boarding school is scary, but give it three months and you'll feel right at home! Take advantage of the accepting community at VES and be yourself, being weird is cool there.

    VES is a very prestigious school which prepares their students "toward full stature". It's a small school consisting of 260 students, located in Lynchburg, VA. many of the students range from different places in the U.S. such as New York and North Carolina, and even international students from the contents of Asia, Europe, and Africa. The academics are top tier and the student life is unforgettable. VES tends to balance its academic excellence with its student activities such as athletics or the arts, which are very prestigious as well. being a small community is probably the best part about VES as you can build relationships with almost every teacher, student, or faculty member here. VES changed me by opening friendships, improving my academics, being stronger in athletics, and even trying out new things in the arts. If you came to VES, I guarantee you would enjoy it, as it could possible changer your life for the better.
    I recently graduated, and am constantly appreciative for the experience afforded me at VES. Beyond feeling academically prepared for my courses at University, the sense of community and the culture of personal growth allowed me to truly explore my passions. I came to college prepared in every sphere of my life - socially, mentally, academically. VES taught me how to challenge myself and gave me the tools necessary to do so on a daily basis.
