The school is divided into four successive “Classes”: Elementary, Middle School, Junior High and High School. Students are assigned to their respective classes based on their age and the age-grade equivalent curriculum levels they are working on in their core subjects:

Each class has its own Learning Centre headed by one or more Supervisors (corresponding to teachers) assisted by one or more Monitors (corresponding to teacher aides). The ACE® guideline is one Supervisor plus one Monitor per up to thirty students; VLCS typically maintains a higher staff-to-student ratio than this, especially at lower grade levels.

Students are taught to self-study in the Learning Centre, with the Supervisor inspiring achievement and providing academic guidance while the Monitor looks after non-academic requests and administrative support. In essence, the curriculum PACEs are the teachers, and the students are trained by VLCS staff to be active learners. There is minimal whole-class teaching (apart from supplementary curriculum), allowing maximal one-on-one support (on a time-shared basis) as and when required by individual students.

Students are also expected to complete extra PACE work at home on a regular basis (amount set according to their own goals).
