"Dominare, Certa, Perfice"


Sgt. Ernie Calhoun

You will not study physics; you will study physics engines. You will not study art; you will study the art of war! You will learn about biology by bathing in the blood of your enemies. Sound good? Well welcome to VGHS. - Acceptance video to VGHS by Sgt. Ernie Calhoun

Video Game High School is a prestigious and awarded academy for the best gamers in the nation. Sgt. Ernie Calhoun is the principal of the school and enlists many of the students. Those selected are given the choice of joining and perfecting their skills on the game genre of their choice, with FPS being the most popular sport that overshadows all others.

Overview Edit

Video Game High School is the name of the academy at which most of the action takes place in the series. Its campus includes dorms, classrooms, a cafeteria, the Principal's Office and a Battle Arena, where the Varsity battles are fought. Although the name suggests it's a high school, VGHS features many university/college-like elements, such as School Divisions (e.g. School of Arms & Marksmanship), classes numbered according to level of knowledge (e.g. FPS 101).

Motto Edit

The school's motto is "Dominare, Certa, Perfice" which are three Latin verbs meaning "Dominate, Strive, Perfect".  (The first verb appears to be the infinitive of "dominare", but is actually the imperative singular of the deponent "imponari", wherefore all verbs are imperative, unlike some people assumed.)

Curriculum Edit

The school offers classes on all game genres available, including FPS, Real Time Strategy, Racing and Musical Instruments Simulation. Students entering the academy attend classes on various games before being asked to choose a principle genre of studies.

Based on the posters of the "School of Arms & Marksmanship", it is assumed that every class belongs to a specific school and the choice made by the student equals his entrance in the School relative to the chosen genre.

During their stay at the academy, students are ranked based on their performance in competing against one another. Their initial rank is based on their experience prior to attending VGHS, as seen in VGHS - Episode 2 where BrianD enters the academy ranked last (436/436).

Expulsion Edit

When students compete against each other, those that have lost have their points reduced. Once a student loses points below the "Expulsion Threshold" he faces expulsion from the school. Even worse, a student reaching zero points is automatically expelled.

Video Game High School is subdivided in Schools based on game genres.
