VALOR CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Currently onsite hours are from 9-noon Monday and Wednesday, and 9-3 Tuesday and Thursday. Homeschool hours are Monday and Wednesday afternoons, and Friday mornings. Several times per month we enjoy fellowship together over family potlucks and field trips.
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!"
At Valor, we believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Jesus’ gift He left with us on earth. We believe in listening to the Holy Spirit to guide us in our interactions with students. He is infinitely creative and wise. We have a lot to learn from Him in every area. We believe that children are able to hear God’s voice and we encourage them daily to listen to His voice to guide them.
Every day we set our eyes on the Lord at the beginning of our day. This creates an atmosphere of worship and praise and helps us to focus on Him to help guide our day. We believe that God’s plan for our lives is that we would learn to do everything (eating, playing, learning) all from a place of worship of Him.
Students learn in a rich environment that brings children of different ages together based on their ability levels. Children advance from simple to more complex strategies and materials at their own pace.
Low Teacher-Student Ratio
We are committed to providing a low teacher-student ratio at Valor. We believe in having the time to focus on individual children and provide one-on-one time when needed. We encourage parents and grand-parents in the classroom and believe it enriches the environment that God created children to grow in.
At Valor, we want to partner with families to raise up Ambassador’s for Christ. Some families may benefit from part-time enrollment at Valor. We believe parents know what is best for their children and want to work with each family to find what that is.
The Lord created each child with unique personality traits and giftings to be used for His purposes. These special qualities are personally praised and guided so each child can blossom and walk fully in the destiny God has for them.
The very core of Valor and raising children to walk in their destiny is having a pure heart. Through daily forgiveness and repentance, we teach children to trust in the Lord and listen to His voice. We walk with children to learn how to go to Him in all circumstances.
A Biblical Model of Support
We believe Valor is to welcome every child that God calls, regardless of the financial situation of their family. Each family prayerfully decides how to support their child’s education. We rely on families to contribute in any way that God calls them to – giving freely of their time, talents, abilities and resources. (Acts 2:42-47)
