Our inquiry based approach centers students to engage their curiosity. We encourage learners to build knowledge and understanding through hands-on experiences.

RVC students share their knowledge with others, deepening their understanding and building confidence. Our arts-integrated program has students singing, creating, and performing as part of the classroom experience. Our multi-faceted approach to engaging and supporting students is designed to ensure that they thrive in school and beyond.
