VCS Curriculum Resources

The Villages Charter School is built upon a core set of curriculum standards - first and foremost are the Florida Standards. We supplement those standards with national standards in areas not covered by the Florida Standards. Listed below you will find dozens of online resources that we hope you will find helpful. Our goal is to offer high quality websites that can enrich our daily instruction and provide a place for students to get help, do research, and practice their skills. We make no guarantee or claim regarding the content of each site. Please let us know if you find a link that is no longer valid.

The Florida Standards Assessments website provides students, parents and educators with details about the new standards and assessments. We encourage everyone to look over the information provided on this website to learn more about the new standards and accompanying assessments that began in 2014-15.
