David Stewart – VCS Grad 2017
David Stewart believes that working harder at a private school like Venice Christian School prepared him, better than most, for his college education. David attended Venice Christian School in 9th grade, then moved to Jensen Beach for the first half of his sophomore year, where he attended a much larger public school. He was very happy to get back to Venice Christian for the second half of his sophomore year and through graduation.
“You know the teachers and the teachers know you. You’re not just a number,” he said. “VCS is a close knit community and the overall quality of education is better.”
David is now a sophomore at USF Sarasota studying biology and chemistry. His current goal is to become a dentist. David’s college professors are complimenting him on his writing technique and style which he credits to Mrs. Foust at VCS. Mr. Koach’s classes at VCS made college math easier for David, and he also stands out in his larger classrooms at USF because he engages in the class discussions and interacts with the teachers, which he also learned at VCS.
The staff at VCS not only gave him a top-notch education, but they also taught him how to take his faith seriously. “College is such a moldable environment [that I’m thankful] VCS helped me to solidify my worldview and my faith.”
David encourages students to attend VCS because, “You’ll meet people you’ll be friends with for a long time. You’re around good-minded people who are in the same moral spectrum as you.”
