Academic Life at MVCS
Mid Vermont Christian School offers an education for preschoolers through the 12th grade. Students learn in self-contained classrooms, with individual classroom teachers providing instruction. The Word of God is integrated into each classroom and each subject.
The materials used to implement the curriculum at MVCS are mainly from Christian publishers. We are currently using materials published by: A Beka Book, Bob Jones University Press, Glencoe, Houghton Mifflin, McDougal Littell, Pearson Education, and various other publishers.
To help promote a standard of excellence, we utilize and Honor Roll. To achieve high honors a student must have all grades for the quarter between 91% (A-) and 100% (A+). To achieve honors a student must have all grades for the quarter between 81% (B-) and 100% (A+). These students will receive a certificate of achievement. These may also be posted in the Monday Monitor and the local newspapers.
PTF – see our section on Parent-Teacher Fellowship for more information on this organization. Watch the Monday Monitor for ways to get involved and support MVCS by getting involved with our walk-a-thons, pie sales, Christmas Sale, refreshments during musical programs and sporting events, etc.
It is expected that all students will be truthful and honest at all times as a clear testimony to the Lord. If a student does lie or cheat on any school assignments, he/she will be disciplined accordingly. The student may receive a zero on the assignment and possibly a school suspension depending on the situation.
Homework and other classroom type assignments are not to be shared with other students to copy. Both parties (students) are guilty if this interchange of information takes place. Students are encouraged to study together or help each other, but not to copy work from one another.
Book checkout in the elementary school library is only to take place when the librarian is present or with a teacher. We also have videos in the elementary school library that can be checked out by parents and returned within one week. The office staff supervises checkout of books in the junior/senior high school. Eating and drinking are not allowed in the library.
Books can be checked out for a period of two weeks. In the event that a book is lost or damaged, the student will be asked to replace the same title or pay for its replacement. Reminder notices will be sent home periodically. If a library book remains unreturned or replaced at the conclusion of the school year, the student’s report card will be withheld until the matter is resolved. If any parent/guardian would like to volunteer some time in the library, please let the librarian or the secretaries know.
