Valor is committed to providing excellent academic instruction and we will continually reflect and seek to improve our teaching methods and content. We believe strongly that we are to listen to the Holy Spirit as He is the source of all creativity and wisdom - including in our classrooms. We know He will direct us how to teach and reach each child. Teachers will get to know their students and tailor the curriculum, ensuring each child reaches their full potential.
At Valor, all students will explore, learn and lead in multiage classrooms. There are many benefits to this exceptional learning format. In a multiage classroom you will see: students of different ages and abilities, teachers instroducing core concepts to the whole class, teachers working with small groups of students where more focused instruction occurs (differentiation), students helping and teaching other students, and lots of opportunities for students to collaborate in a supportive and caring environment.
We want to make Christian education accessible to all families. We believe we are to turn no one away because of financial limitations. God reassures us "I will provide!"
