Vanguard Parent Crew (VPC) efforts serve to not only strengthen the Viking community but also support ongoing maturity aspects of our children. The VPC vision is accomplished through working together as parents and guardians with school faculty/staff as a powerful team to model adult working relationships based upon civility, support, and respect.


All parents and guardians of students at Vanguard College Preparatory School are automatically a part of the VanguardParent Crew (VPC). The VPC enriches the school community by supporting academic, operational, and athletic programs. Working in cooperation with school administration, the VPC operates to provide volunteering and financial support through such vehicles as fundraising campaigns, grade level sponsors, sports team parents, teacher appreciation efforts, academic and athletic program enhancements, student recognition, and more.
