Virginia Law and Private Schools is published annually by the Virginia Council for Private Education (VCPE), to support the motivation and commitment to quality education needed to operate a private school of high caliber. VCPE encourages all private schools to explore the possibility of state recognized accreditation through an approved accrediting association.
Regulatory and statutory changes made throughout the year are incorporated into the guide annually and newly discovered or updated resources are shared. All administrators and business officers are encouraged to review the entire guide annually and to consult with professional legal counsel with specific questions to ensure compliance with all state and legal requirements.
The Virginia Law and Private Schools Guide is a benefit of VCPE membership and is provided to all accredited private schools. Non-accredited private schools may wish to purchase our law guide. Please see below.
