Hello Steve, Enjoy our Saints News! 

Because of the generous support from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, I’m excited to announce the Vail Christian High School faculty recipients of this year’s VCHS Faculty Innovation Grants.


Vail Christian High School seeks to promote the most distinguished ideas for teaching and learning and showcase that excellence in ways that benefit the entire school community. The faculty and students are the school's most important assets. To ensure we provide our students with the very best Christian education possible, we must regularly invest in our faculty. This will provide our faculty with the resources to pursue highly customized, professional research and growth opportunities that will enable them to innovate their instructional practices and curriculum with the goal to help their students achieve at the highest levels possible.

VCHS Faculty Innovation Grant recipients for 2023 include:


Mrs. Carlson (Director of Christian Life, Theology/Fine Arts Teacher) will pursue a certificate in Narrative Focused Trauma Care from the Seattle School of Psychology and Theology. This training will give her tools to work with students and their families helping facilitate healing through engaging individual’s stories with courage, compassion, and skill.


Mrs. Juskaitis (English Teacher) will pursue a certificate in Restorative Practices for Educators through the International Institute for Restorative Practices. She has always been interested in conflict mediation between parties where two parties might need the support of a 3rd party to manage their differences. She will learn effective methods that will support VCHS in creating positive classroom and school culture, as well as helping to resolve relational challenges when they surface.


Mrs. Venz (Spanish Teacher) will spend the summer in Salamanca, Spain, immersed in Spanish culture and language. Central Connecticut State University is offering this 9 graduate credit program. Mrs. Venz looks forward to ‘walk in her students’ shoes’ as a Spanish student and innovate the creation and delivery of her curriculum. Because of this opportunity, her AP Spanish class will also be dual enrollment eligible. 


Mrs. Verratti (English/Resource Teacher) will be taking a self-paced graduate course through the University of Michigan called – Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement. She’s excited to learn more about the emerging field of improvement science as it relates to educational innovation. She looks forward to sharing with the faculty new knowledge and evidence-based methods of educational innovation for school improvement. 


Way to go Faculty Saints!

VCHS English Teacher, Drea Juskaitis | 2023 Girls Soccer Coach

What a great pleasure it is for me to be the Head Varsity Soccer Coach of the Lady Saints! We've been practicing for over three weeks, have played in three games, and have already experienced positive outcomes!

The first game of the season was a confidence booster as players worked together and put ten goals behind the net! I am very proud of what we've accomplished in such little time.

My goal for the year is to build self-confidence in these young women on and off the field, reminding them that if they "take shots," we will inevitably "tickle some twine," which will give us the confidence to win!

The VCHS Ladies Saints Soccer team is well underway with strong leaders and positive support from our 19-player roster, led by senior captains Daisy Palacio and Steele McClinton.

I can't wait to get on the field and play more games and score more goals!

-Coach J
