Vigo County School Corporation


In 2020, the Vigo County School Corporation Board of School Trustees developed a new vision, mission, values, and critical challenges statement for the Vigo County School Corporation.


Working together with our community, we inspire our students to discover their talents and rise to their greatest potential.


Building on the strengths of our diverse community, we create an engaging, comprehensive educational environment that supports the growth of lifelong learners.

  • We are committed to always asking/answering: “What is in the best interest of each student?”
  • Leading by example, we are committed to personal accountability and work habits, honesty, and respect.
  • We are committed to a safe, secure, and welcoming environment.
  • We are committed to practices of inclusive excellence that value differences.
  • We are committed to respecting the voice of all district stakeholders through collaborative engagement.
  • We are committed to developing students who improve the quality of life for the Wabash Valley.
Critical Challenges

The critical challenge for the Vigo County School Corporation over the next five years will be to prepare students to be lifelong learners, inspiring independent thinkers, and growing exemplary citizens within the constraints of a shrinking school population, shrinking school funding, and a statewide teacher shortage. A demographic study conducted in 2017 indicates that our school enrollment will continue to decline over the next several years.
