• No Bells. No Classrooms.
    No Limits.

    At VNS, Students Individualize Their Education.

    We’re Opening Doors
    by Opening Minds.

  • Memorize a Bunch
    of Facts? No Way.

    Our Students Learn
    How to Learn.

    At VNS, We Value Process
    as Much as Products.

  • Voice. Choice. 
    Meaningful relationships.

    That Leads to Engaged 
    Students.

    And Engagement Leads 
    to Achievement.

ANYONE CAN ENROLL

We welcome students in grades 7-12 throughout the Appleton area and surrounding school districts.

SUPPORT FOR INNOVATION

As a lab school, our staff and students help others to develop cutting-edge learning communities.

STUDENT-DRIVEN

We do learning differently by encouraging students to investigate their passions through in-depth research projects.

COMMUNITY-FOCUSED

We cultivate long-term relationships with our students as well as connect them to the larger community.

  • With no more than 68 students in the entire school,
    individuals get the personal attention they need to thrive.

  • On standardized tests, our students consistently score at or above
    their traditionally educated peers.

  • 93% of our students are accepted into their first choice of colleges.
