Opened in 2017, Vaux Big Picture High School is a public, four-year neighborhood high school in the School District of Philadelphia primarily serving young people in the Sharswood neighborhood of North Philadelphia.  
Our mission is to equip every Vaux graduate to find and walk their pathway to a successful career. We do this by centering students' learning on their interests and passions, integrating career exploration and internships into our school curriculum, and creating a supportive and nurturing school environment focused on youth resilience and a restorative behavioral model.
We are a proud member of Big Picture Philadelphia and the national Big Picture Learning Network.
