VCPE ADVOCATES FOR PRIVATE SCHOOLS, STUDENTS, & TEACHERS
VCPE advocates for private schools, students, and teachers however possible and whenever possible.
VCPE acts as Virginia’s voice for private schools.
VCPE monitors legislation affecting private schools. VCPE is available to members of the legislature, to the Virginia Board of Education, and to the Virginia Department of Education to furnish information about private schools and to articulate the private school viewpoint on educational matters.
VCPE informs legislators of the interests of private schools, often preventing or quietly eliminating well-meaning but potentially damaging bills, thus ensuring that VCPE’s position of oversight of private education in Virginia continues without local or state intervention.
VCPE assists accredited private schools in advocating for their students in ensuring credits are transferred correctly to public schools and post-secondary education.
