Ventura Missionary School (VMS, K-8), is located in the beautiful foothills of Ventura. Since 1980, VMS, a ministry of Ventura Missionary Church, has provided a supportive, nurturing, non-denominational Christian environment where academic excellence is pursued.
The curriculum at Ventura Missionary School is challenging and comprehensive, yet student-friendly. It covers California State Standards while incorporating Biblical truths. We are an Arts-Enriched school, providing instruction from specialized teachers in the following: Spanish, Art, Music, and Computer.
Ventura Missionary School employes credentialed teachers, many of whom hold Masters degrees.
VMS elementary students receive weekly instruction in Spanish, art, music and computer. Sixth and Seventh grade students receive a quarter of Spanish instruction, and eligible eighth grade students may enroll in Spanish I (a high school level course). Other middle school enrichment classes are: study skills, health, speech, geography, finance, art and computer. In addition, middle school students may enroll in choir and drama. Each year our students participate in a Christmas musical and a spring musical, both directed by our music teacher.
At VMS we study the Bible as a subject to further students' knowledge and spiritual development. In addition, elementary students attend Chapel biweekly, and middle school students attend chapel weekly where the middle school youth pastor speaks and provides follow-up questions for reflection. All students memorize Scripture weekly.
At each grade level educational opportunities, including hands-on activities and field trips, are utilized to enhance specific learning and to develop a love of lifelong learning.
Our mission is to clearly present Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We accomplish this in a spiritually-focused, supportive school environment with high academic and behavioral standards through instruction based on God's Word.
Daycare also available: 7:30 a.m. & 3:00-5:30 p.m.
