Welcome to Vermilion Country School

At Vermilion Country School, we do not believe in an assembly line education, where students rarely have opportunities to guide their own programming. Each student has unique interests and abilities. So, we develop a highly-personalized project-based learning plan that allows the student to engage more deeply in the process, while meeting all State standards. Vermilion Country School provides a supportive environment where students are encouraged to explore, collaborate, and find success in their own way, both inside and outside the classroom.

VCS is a grades 7-12 public charter school in Minnesota's beautiful North Country. There is no tuition and transportation is provided.

Why come to Vermilion Country School?
Because our goal is to light the fire in each student. To help them find their passion for learning, give them the multitude of skills they'll need to be successful, and most importantly, to be a valued member of society in the 21st Century. If you're tired of an outdated status quo in education, you won't find a better alternative in the North Country than the Vermilion Country School.

Note for the Beginning of the Year

Yes, the first day of school is Aug 31st for all students. We will be holding orientation and the open house that day as well, but it is an attendance day so all students are expected.

School supplies - There isn't a specific list because each teacher might need something different, but it is a safe bet to stock up on basic supplies like: Pens, Pencils, Colored Pencils, Folders/Notebooks, Loose Leaf Paper, and Storage for Supplies in their Desk.

Parents/Community Members - At the start of the year we can always use donations to the school for things that get used all year like: Printer Paper, Kleenex, Poster Board, Butcher Paper Rolls, General Classroom Supplies, etc. If you use any purchases will also generate additional donation revenue that can go to the school. Just make sure to designate Vermilion Country School as the doesn't cost you anything, it comes out of Amazon's portion when the purchase is made. Last year we were able to earn several hundred dollars towards school supplies this way. Every little bit helps. We also collect the pink education labels off of products as well, each one is worth .10 to schools who turn them in.

Amazon Smile and Book Wish List

Vermilion Country School now has as a charitable donator just like our Target card program. By shopping at Amazon and designating VCS as your charitable donation, Amazon will automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to help out the school. The best part is that it doesn't cost a thing! Just sign up and do your shopping as normal and the school will get some additional support to keep providing high quality programs for our north range students: "Amazon Smile Link"

We are also keeping a public wish list of books that students would like to add to our library. If anyone is looking for donation options for the school, following the items on the wish list is something easy to click on and help out students at the school: "Amazon Wish List Link"

 The best way to predict your future, is to create it.
