Vision…

VOEA is a school of technology preparing students to compete in a global community, having a local imprint with an international impact.  For eight years, our village has been comprised of the families, local businesses and stakeholders who contribute to the academic excellence of our students.  By applying research-based proven strategies to core curriculum we outpaced similar schools to improve educational outcomes.

Philosophy…

VOEA uses use a strength-based assessment approach to develop academic and behavioral plans for all students.  This proactive, preventive model paired with high curriculum standards reduces the frequency of students involved in non-compliant school behaviors and increases student success.  We will pool the strengths of the “village” (family, school, and community) to foster the academic excellence of our students.

We Believe…

“It takes a whole village to raise a child.”  Children’s most meaningful learning occurs through positive and supportive relationships with caring and nurturing adults. Parents are children’s first teachers; however, all adults with a vested interest in a child MUST interact collaboratively and sensitively with each other on behalf of that child.  All parents, staff members, and community members, regardless of position, have an important contribution to make towards improving a student’s education.
