The school and its faculty are committed to a Biblically sound education that stresses character and academic excellence. In Christ are hid all the treasures of Wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:3).
Years ago, a group of local parents and teachers met to discuss their vision for a Christian school in the Venice area. They strongly believed that integration of faith and learning was essential for excellence in education. In the fall of 1987, Venice Christian School (VCS) opened its doors to area students, making their dream a reality.
Today, VCS is fully accredited and recognized as one of the most outstanding private schools in the area, according to the Florida Council of Private Schools. More than 250 students from Sarasota to Port Charlotte attend VCS, from preschool to 12th grade. We have remained an independent, not-for-profit school, with students representing more than 35 area churches.
In our 25 year history, VCS has earned numerous awards and accolades. However, the true measure of our success is how the school is dramatically changing the lives of students and, in turn, impacting our world for Christ. Ultimately, that is what sets the standard for all that we do.
Each of our teachers are handpicked and I know that they have been called by God into this ministry, they are fully certified through the Association of Christian Schools International. We are blessed to have them here at the school. Our school is truly training champions for Jesus Christ. Please call for a tour of the school at 941-496-4411.

Colossians 2:3 – in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Acts 4:12 – Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body[a] and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Matthew 10:42 – And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.
1 Thessalonians 4:9 – Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another.
Romans 12:3-13 – For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members,[a] and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads,[b] with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,[c] serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
