Operating procedure at Vincent Academy comes from a place of connection and community. The why's and the wherefores are not punitive but explained in terms of caring for our community and how to treat others with kindness and respect.

This a wonderful little school where you have talented adults at all levels sharing an excitement for a life of learning with our children. The kids are supported with healthy eating habits, empathetic communication and solid expectations. Growing parent involvement and innovative culture.

I've witnessed first-hand the lengths to which Vincent Academy Principal Kate Nichol will go to ensure a child receives the education they deserve. Ms. Nichol has truly gone well beyond the call of duty to assist a child, an organization can only be as good as its leadership, and Ms. Nichol truly cares about Vincent Academy students.

This school...some teachers are great with their children. Some aren't. The admin staff need so much help. Documents are late, they lose paper work and want you to resubmit things. They are behind on so much work it's ridiculous. They have programs for children who are behind, but nothing for children who are advanced. They show favoritism toward student. I've seen an admin allow her son attend the school, and after school program. And he didn't attend the school at all, but because his mom was part of admin it was ok I guess. I thought that was illegal. I've heard that a male admin admit to hitting a child. And I've seen the principal lose a child and took it very lightly. The principal and her boss only cares about the money. Donations and how they can receive grants. My child will never attend this school every again.
