EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY

Our education philosophy is expressed through the following tenets we hold dear:

SCHOOL ORGANISATION

  • The Junior Secondary School – Basic Years Seven, Eight and Nine.
  • The Senior School – Senior Secondary One, Two and Three.
  • There will be a maximum of 25 students in each classroom.

THE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM

VCC will offer a wide range of subjects.
The Junior Secondary School will run the Basic Education National Curriculum.
The Senior Secondary School will run an expanded curriculum:
  • Senior Secondary National Curriculum
  • General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE)/ International General Certificate of Secondary Education syllabi.
These two curricula will prepare them to sit for both national and international examinations:
  • West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE)
  • General Certificate of Secondary Education and/or International General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE/IGCSE)
Students will sit for these examinations at the end of their third year in Senior Secondary School. Teachers and Guidance Counselors will guide students in choosing a balanced range of subjects based on their abilities and desired future careers.
Heads of Departments, Year Tutors, and Class teachers will monitor their progress to ensure that no child is left behind.
Beyond the basic curriculum subjects, all students will take the following courses:
  • Leadership
  • Personal, Social and Civic Rights and Responsibility
  • Instruction in Virtues
  • Life Skills and Effective Communication
  • Personal Finance
  • Teaming and Collaboration
  • Overall School Culture.

CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

VCC has a wide variety of co-curricular activities, clubs and societies for students.

Music
Music will be given prominence and high investment will be committed to developing students’ musical talents.
  • Each student will be encouraged to play at least one instrument and to sing.
  • Instructors will include full-time staff and experienced visiting instrumentalists.
  • Talented students will be given opportunities to perform within and outside the school to build their confidence and hone their skills.
  • Choral Music will be a particular strength of the school.

Drama & Visual Arts
Students who have interest and ability have the opportunity to develop their talent in drama, guided by teachers and visiting professionals. Specially equipped rooms are provided for students (and teachers) to hone their talents and potential. Our pride is in exhibiting students’ works around the school, generally and during special school programs.

Debating & Public Speaking
Students learn to articulate their thoughts and arguments in public fora. This is an important course designed to develop the ability for students to communicate fluently and effectively; an essential skill of a leader.

Community Service
An important part of our vision is to imbue our students with the principle of service- to the school, the school’s host community and the less-privileged, through Community Action Programmes. Through these activities, students learn to appreciate their immediate environment and consequently become:
  • Thankful for the privileges they enjoy
  • Compassionate and helpful.
  • Desirous to make a difference to the lives of others and their community/society.
  • Charitable in giving of their time and material resources for the benefit of others.
The school will adopt a public school in the community which it will support through gifts and voluntary work of staff and students.
