This year at VSAA is going to be a joyful adventure.  So many of us have looked forward to a return to school 5 days a week for all students. Though there will still be some challenges, the opportunity for all of us to be together in this amazing school is truly a gift.

To add to the excitement, we have over 200 new students joining us this fall. Our remodel will be complete in late November, and we will once again have the opportunity to come together as a school community!

This year’s theme, the World of Play, will allow our students and faculty to learn theatrical concepts with the play version of A Wrinkle in Time as our “Art at the Center.”  We will also use our creativity and imagination to explore other definitions of play.  We expect to bring back our all-school theme experience this year as well.

I am personally looking forward to hearing music in our halls, seeing our students collaborating, socializing and joyfully engaging in their art forms.

The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” —Christopher McCandless
