“It’s pretty simple. VIP offers a high-quality education and
comprehensive college prep to any teen that wants them – period.”

— YALE EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, ANNE COCHRAN

 

“It feels like the students here are ‘academic refugees’ who were looking for a more meaningful experience and weren’t finding it elsewhere.  The teachers here seem more like mentors than just disseminators of information… There is a substantive level of discourse happening here and that is really refreshing.”

— BRENNAN DIGNAN, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS, BENNINGTON COLLEGE

Prospective Students

VIPHS Open Houses, Tours, Info Sessions

Spread the word!

Beginning this Thursday, VIPHS is holding info sessions for prospective families every Thursday in September at 6:30 PM at our campus.  After that, we are doing them twice a month – check the calendar.

 

Families can come to see a formal presentation about the school, its model, and what we have to offer that other public schools do not. We still have space left, so, these presentations are suitable for both eighth-grade families and families of current high schoolers.

 

We don’t set specific times for daytime tours – families can just email info@viphs.org and arrange for a time that is most convenient for them!

At Valley International Preparatory High School (VIP), a new public charter high school authorized by LAUSD, we believe that “progressive” and “rigorous” are not mutually exclusive when it comes to education. The teachers, administrators and most students at VIP comprise a school community that started four years ago, producing national-level speech and debate championships (was named a 2018 Top 10 program in the nation), 2018 Los Angeles County Mock Trial team championship, “Get Lit” poetry team championships for two years’ running, and popular and unique contemporary music and theatre programs. Its past three graduating classes are now attending colleges such as; Columbia, Yale, Wellesley, Georgetown, UC Berkeley, Dartmouth, Brown, UCLA, Bryn Mawr, and many more. VIP’s mission is to prepare students for college through a combination of engaging yet challenging courses and learning experiences designed by a staff of talented and award-winning educators. Add to this mix – small class sizes, AP offerings, advisory periods, many innovative electives, an extensive college counseling process that focuses on “right fit” for every student, and a school culture that fosters and values self-reflection, self-expression, and self-actualization… and you have VIPHS!

VIP VOICE UPDATES

This year, VIPHS will be sending out periodic updates and newsletters with the name VIP Voice!
Make sure you always read these as they contain important information about the school program, upcoming events, etc.

THE “FOUR KEYS” TO SUCCESS

VIPHS’ Educational Model is called the Four Keys to College and Career Readiness.  Based on the research of Dr. David Conley, our balanced and holistic approach to school design ensures that every student is prepared for success in and admissions to a four year institution of their choice.  The phrase “Think, Know, Act, Go,” sums up the four components of the model.  Click the button below to learn more!

SMALLER LEARNING COMMUNITY

We recognize and embrace the individuality of every student and family, and believe that all children can learn, given the right conditions and requisite level of collaboration and interaction.   Learning best occurs in a collegial atmosphere in a small learning community – with teachers and students as partners in education. We believe that at VIPHS, students who are known well, know well.

RIGOROUS LEARNING EXPERIENCES

From the humanities to STEM to the arts, our classes and programs are rigorous, engaging, and set students up for success in any four year institution they choose to attend and allow students to explore a variety of disciplines from unique perspectives.
