RVC is open to all California residents, from TK through 5th grade.

Our enrollment process is simple.

  1. Submit an application by applying online. At the end of the enrollment period, the admissions process will be conducted to accept applicants, or a grade-level lottery will be conducted if there are more applicants than there are open spaces.
  2. Once RVC has conducted the admissions process, you will receive an offer of admission or be placed on the waitlist.
  3. Complete your registration. You will receive a link to the registration portal with your admission offer. Students who are admitted to RVC have 2 weeks to complete their enrollment paperwork. Otherwise, that slot is opened up for the next enrollment period.

Enrolled students don't need to reapply every year.

Please contact our office at (415) 534-6970 if you have any questions.

RVC emphasizes the joy of discovery for grades TK through 5. Our students are encouraged to follow their natural curiosity, and are given the space and tools to explore their interests. The RVC approach encourages independence and collaboration, individual responsibility, and a caring sense of community.
