Do you know where our Superintendent, Dr. Dance, went to college? If you guessed Virginia Union University, you are correct. VUU places more emphasis on grades than test scores, and they do prefer A's and B's in academic courses. Here's what Dr. Dance had to say about Virginia Union U: VUU is a considered an HBCU in the heart of the City of Richmond with a strong Liberal Arts focus. However, over the last several years, a strong focus on education, fine arts, and criminal justice has dominated the academic framework of the university. The campus has roughly 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students and prides itself on creating a small family-like culture. Small classes, student activities, and a no-excuses faculty make VUU a great place for students who desire a small home away from home.
