We welcome your interest to our school of excellence. VMS is a kindergarten through eighth grade, faith-based school and a ministry of Ventura Missionary Church. Our school inspires students to be intellectually curious, to use their talents to the fullest, to be people of integrity, and to know God's love. Our highly gifted faculty and staff support the many advanced programs with creative learning opportunities. These efforts are essential as we foster mental, emotional and spiritual growth for all students and to equip them with these life-skills that will extend far beyond their time at Ventura Missionary School.

Step 3:  Documents:
All documents must be submitted before Testing.  Please submit the following documents to the school office.  Some documents, as you will see below, will need to be originals and we are happy to make copies of those for you. 

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS:  Original birth certificate (we will make a copy); latest report card; standardized test results; immunization records. The student file is complete when all the above documents are provided.
6th-8th grade applicants: a reference letter from the student’s current school.  K-5th grade applicants: a reference letter is not required, but certainly helpful.

1st grade applicants: 1st grade Health Screen


Step 4: Student Assessment / Placement Testing:
Once your application is submitted and all documents are provided, our Admissions Coordinator will schedule a testing date and time. After testing, parents will meet with Dr. Ennis.

Step 5: Admissions Decisions / Invitation to Enroll:
All candidates will participate in a screening which includes a placement test, student interview and review of documents.  Upon completion, each candidate will be notified by the Admission Office: 
1.  Accepted - Admission with Invitation to Enroll.
Once the candidate is accepted, you will be emailed with an invitation to enroll.  The email will include a link to the application.  If you have any questions, please contact Donna Barradas, 805-644-9515, ext. 562.

2.  Wait listed - Due to full capacity, we maintain a wait list. Placement from the wait list is determined by grade level, classroom size and the review of the student's completed Admissions file.  There is no number or date order of priority on the wait list.  If we have a seat that opens for a wait list student, you will be notified by the Admissions office.
3.  Not Accepted

Step 6: Complete Enrollment (Accepted Applicants): 
Respond to the email Invitation to Enroll. Completing your enrollment includes creating your FACTS Tuition account and selecting a payment plan. If you have any questions, please contact Donna Barradas, 805-644-9515, ext. 562. At a later date, you will receive an official letter of congratulations.
