Vaux Big Picture High School opened its doors in September 2017 to welcome its founding class. We are proud to have graduated 183 members of the Classes of 2021 and 2022, who were collectively awarded nearly $4 million in scholarships!

We strive to provide students with a highly personalized educational program, applied learning in real-world contexts, deep and continuous relationships with parents and the community, and sustained post-secondary transition programs. Vaux graduates possess the academic, social, and personal skills to succeed in post-secondary learning opportunities, find employment, and productively give back to their community and the world.
