Our mission is to teach and inspire each child to become an independent thinker and a contributing citizen with a life-long desire to learn. Each child will be given a collectively supportive opportunity to reach his or her greatest potential with small class sizes, a safe and nurturing environment, active parental involvement and a strong curriculum that is enriched with service learning and the Core Knowledge Sequence.
You are our nation's future.
The leaders of tomorrow.

As teachers, it is our duty, responsibility and honor to help you become the very best you can be. We will always work diligently to guide, teach, and promote a healthy, productive and educationally sound foundation from which you will build your future.

It is, therefore, your duty and responsibility to learn, develop and nurture both the positive character examples and enriching educational base that is ready and waiting for you at Vance Charter.

You shape our nation's future,
the guardians of the leaders of tomorrow.

As parents, it is your duty, responsibility and honor to be your child's best advocate and to model at home, the respect for knowledge and character attributes that will best serve your child's future. We trust and rely on your good judgement to reinforce, develop and further enrich their academic and moral education.

Together as partners, we will work to the best of our abilities to fulfill our children's bright promise. You are your child's best resource.
