The VUnited Experience

The VUnited Scholars Program, a first of its kind program at a Catholic college or university, offers a residential, life skills experience to students striving to receive a faith-based education. The program was developed and funded in keeping with the foundation’s 5 foundational pillars: faith development, academic knowledge, social development, independence, and vocational skills. Upon completion of this 2-year certificate program, students will be prepared to build a life upon this steady base.
