Each one of God's precious children are called to serve Him by reflecting His love to bring others to Christ.
At Valor Christian Academy, our deepest desire is to help your child find their calling through encouragement, exploration, and a drive for excellence.
We strive to help our students discern God's plan and purpose for their lives so that they can become the leaders our broken world desperately needs.
"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: be reconciled to God." 2 Corinthians 5:20
"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
Under Rule 13, families can choose to educate their children together forming a "co-op" group where a Parent Representative is named to take responsibility for the overall education of the children attending the Coop. At Valor, the Parent Representative is Rachel Baxter, Valor's founder. Rachel acts as the School Administrator, along with Heidi Carlson. Both women lead the school, seeking the Lord for discernment on day to day decisions and activities.

Valor Christian Academy has a School Board that meets regularly to help set school policy and give guidance to Rachel and Heidi.
A Teacher Leadership Committee also meets regularly providing addition input and assistance for ensuring that student and Missionary needs are being met. The "TLC" is made up of Teacher Missionaries who volunteer at Valor on a regular basis.
Valor is staffed by volunteers who act as Missionaries. Each person feels a call to be at Valor to give of their time and talents according to God's will. No one at Valor receives a salary or regular pay for the work that they do. Instead, each person can choose to raise financial support just as a missionary would anywhere in the world.
