Welcome to Victor Central Schools! 

VCS is a unique place where five schools coexist on one beautiful, sprawling 166-acre campus! Located on the edge of the idyllic village of Victor, it is hard to determine where the school district ends, and the community begins. At VCS, we begin to build community from our youngest pre-school learners in the Early Childhood School, all the way up to our seniors in the high school.

At VCS, we want to ensure that every student graduates with the skills necessary to be successful in any area they choose, whether it is through college, entering a career, or joining the military. Specifically, we emphasize core academics, problem solving, critical thinking skills, and developing strong social-emotional skills. This leads to a comprehensive education for our children with the goal of every child seeing this as a place where they belong while thriving inside and outside of the classroom. 

Ultimately, what makes the Victor Central School District so special is the continuing partnership that exists between parents, our dedicated faculty and staff and our wonderful community. This partnership is built on the foundation of serving every student with excellence.

With gratitude,
