What is the Virginia Council for Private Education (VCPE)?

VCPE oversees accreditation of private preschool, elementary and secondary schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  VCPE facilitates a statewide framework for communication and cooperation among private schools, their public school counterparts, state and local governments, and other agencies and organizations.


VCPE, while recognizing and encouraging a diversity of beliefs, a variety of educational philosophies, and the independence of each member association, strives to represent and speak on educational issues of common concern and interest. VCPE is committed to the preservation of pluralism in American education and the right of parents to choose an education appropriate for their children.
