Hello Steve, Enjoy our Saints News! 

Because of the generosity of so many people with our 5 Days | 5 Reasons campaign along with year-end giving, we received several ‘Christmas gifts’ over the break. For that, our students, teachers, and coaches are grateful for our generous VCHS community.

2022 Ford Transit XLT MR AWD 15-Passenger Van. The van complements our two buses giving us more student travel options to choose from, especially with away athletic events with smaller teams. As van drivers can hold regular licenses, having this transportation option reduces our dependence on the need for bus drivers who must hold commercial driver licenses.

Digital Media Room makeover. On the lower level of the Wheeler Arts and Athletic Center adjacent to the Art Studio, new carpeting and window blinds were installed resulting in a more aesthetically creative and functional space for student video production.


New Sports Medicine Course. We’re thrilled to have Christian Loedel (our Athletic Trainer provided by VSO) join our faculty for 2nd Semester and teach Sports Medicine to almost twenty students.


Without your support, these ‘Christmas gifts’ would not have been possible.

Thank you and Go Saints!

Way to go Saints!

Steve O'Neil

Head of School

Thank you to all the VCHS Families on our Parent Honor Roll who contributed to the 5 Days | 5 Reasons campaign.


We’re thrilled that three of our faculty recently completed advanced degrees.


Dan Mysnyk (AP Economics, Personal Financial Management, Performance PE, Assistant Principal) received his MS in Finance and Economics from West Texas A&M University. Mr. Mysnyk also holds a MS in Mathematics (Tarleton State University) and a BA in Mathematics and Economics (Wartburg College). As it relates to his advanced studies, he said, I want to “develop a deep understanding of how the economy works so that I will be able to answer any and all questions that my students have.”


Ashley Nock (Theology I, III, IV; Foundations of Algebra, Algebra II) received her MA in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary. Ms. Nock also holds a BS in Math Education (Baylor University). With this new degree, Ms. Nock shared that she “will be better able to guide a student's big life questions through a Christian worldview.” She also expressed how “excited she is to continue discussing the mystery of faith.”


Denae O’Neil (AP Chemistry, Physics, Engineering) received her MS in Chemistry from The College of St. Scholastica. Mrs. O’Neil also holds a BS in Chemistry (Wheaton College). She expressed her passion for further studies in this way – “We are all scientists by nature – although not all called to science as a career. With this basis, I see myself, a teacher, as a facilitator to help my students learn to critically think as scientists and uncover joy in doing so.” 


Way to go, Faculty Saints!

Friday, January 20 - CyberPatriot Semifinals

3PM-9PM Hive

Thank you to VCHS Parent Association for supporting CYBERPATRIOT club in its annual competition! A great year is winding down after state competitions last month.

Teams were divided into tiers based on past performance.

Senior team of Madeline Wendt, Stefan Labenski, Ryan Hutchinson and Diego Heredia were placed in the Platinum tier - competing against the best in the nation - and placed in the top third of this difficult tier.

The other teams competed in the Gold tier:

Junior (mostly) team of Faris Rawlings, Ethan Rackliff, Daniel Farrell, Philipp Shchetinin, and Matthew Wolniak placed 2nd in the State and top 5% in their tier nationwide.

Freshman team of Annie Becker, Reese Dill, Blake Kirkham, Patrick Grier and Michael Kolczak placed 8th in State and top 15% in their tier nationwide.

While these are the names on each team roster, all club members helped these teams with research, problem solving and enthusiasm. Congratulations to Jack Aldrich, Keegan Collins, Adam Labenski, Nancy Liu, John McAbee and Vasko Mihaylov for being integral in helping your fellow students advance to the next round. Good luck to the Junior and Freshman teams as they compete in the Semifinals on Friday, January 20! 

Your VCHS National Honor Society continues to serve the Loaves & Fishes Ministry volunteering on Wednesdays at Eagle River Presbyterian Church in Avon.
