Systematic Truth Learning Method (STLM)

Systematic Truth Learning Method is where facilitators relate to students of color by being transparent about the educational systematic disparities and oppressions that students inherently sense and feel but may not be able to articulate. STLM validates the often, unspoken feeling that students of color feel from facilitators because of biases and implications often unintentional yet very impactful in a harmful way.

Rigorous Inquiry and Competency-Based Education

Culturally Relevant Education

Intentional and Strategic Partnerships
Talk the talk.....Walk the Walk

Since 2020, VPAC has implemented an internal partnership process that protects, promotes, and vows to operate in integrity void of practices and behaviors that produce harmful results for students and families. An MOU is established during the first phase of the process and is called project partnership. This is where it is determined rather or not both organizations are mission and vision aligned and to nurture an authentic relationship and trust between both leadership teams. VPAC is engaged in project partnerships with other organizations and the goal is that they lead to the second phase of intentional and strategic partnership. As the fourth intentional and strategic partnership that has collaborated in this process, genuine trust and alignment are the foundation. Some highlights of intentional and strategic partnerships is the VILLAGE concept aligns with partners core values, we are strategic in growth and movement together, we operate with the students and families in mind FIRST, and we refuse to not execute actual support to one another only in an asset mindset.
