Velocity for Eighth Grade

Village Christian School’s VELOCITY is a research-based program specially designed to meet the needs of students who repeat eighth grade. Based on studies conducted by Stanford University and other noted researchers, VELOCITY provides the opportunity and atmosphere to foster and encourage academic success and in-depth preparation for students before they enter high school. The year will seek to build leadership skills, provide academic reinforcement, and deepen understanding of eighth-grade standards, as well as develop skills in reading, writing, public speaking, and collaborative learning. Additionally, students will be encouraged to pursue a passion and have the opportunity to grow spiritually and personally before transitioning into high school.
