VALOR CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Valor is a community of believers being raised up together, with each person, young and old – being drawn closer to the Lord in relationship with Jesus as His disciples and ambassadors.
To be in community, we need to spend time together both inside and outside of school. Parents and Grandparents assist and lead classes at Valor. We ask families to contribute 6-12 hours onsite per week. They are supported by missional teachers and volunteers who feel called to Valor. Education hours are split between onsite schooling and at-home schooling. We’ve moved to an extended calendar August through June because community nor growth cease during summer months. Our schedule consists of 7 six-week sessions with a one week break in between each session. Each session has a different focus area such as Exploring Creation, Abiding in the Father’s Heart and Kingdom Character.
Valor is an Educational Resource Center operating as a Homeschool Coop. Parents and families are an integral part of this work since the Lord instituted family and chose to knit together each one uniquely. Parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their children but it is God’s heart for the family to have the support that they need to teach and reach the whole child – mind, body and spirit. Classrooms (we call Tribes) are established with children of different ages similar to the concept of a one room school house where children can progress at their own best pace. Currently, Valor has 3 classes: the Explorers are preK and K age, the Benjamites are 1st to 4th grade, and the Voyagers are 5th to 12th.

VCA will teach each child to understand that they were created for a purpose and that their life has meaning. The world wants children to believe that their life will never amount to anything. Jesus wants each child to know in their heart that they are special and worthy of the calling that they have been given.
Our purpose is to help each child discern the calling that is on their life, and to equip them to walk in that calling with the Lord.
If parents, family, and educators do not pour the truth about a child's identity into them, the world will. The world speaks to children that they do not have any value, even sometimes that they were a mistake.
The truth is that each child has value. In fact, each child was worth the life of Christ. VCA believes that we must pour the truth of each child's identity in Christ into them, to help them discern their gifts, and equip them to walk in the calling that God has given to each one.
