Academics

Valor Christian High School provides an academically rigorous learning program grounded in Biblical truth that prepares students for the highest levels of academic performance and leadership in college and beyond.

Overview

We believe all students are created in the image of God which greatly impacts the way we view students.

Adhering to the premise that all truth is God’s truth, faculty seek to reveal God’s truth in all academic areas and provide spaces for students to examine, develop, and mature in their faith.

In partnership with committed parents, our academic mission is to provide purpose-driven, college preparatory classes, within a vibrant Christ-centered environment. Learn about the various programs we offer our students below, along with our academic distinctives, fast facts regarding our department, and academic stories.

 

Academic Distinctives

College Preparatory


Our College Prep classes are intellectually challenging and developmentally appropriate. Honors, Advanced Placement (AP) and Dual Credit (DC) classes provide college-level content and requirements that keep advanced and highly motivated students engaged and thriving.

We offer a wide variety of elective courses as well, so students are able to support their long-term interests and goals. Our weekly schedule closely replicates a college experience, with courses meeting at various times throughout the week, enabling students to invest in peer, teacher and mentor relationships throughout the week.

 

Relationally Focused Faculty


Highly professional and relational faculty are dedicated to building meaningful relationships with students and encouraging academic, social, and spiritual growth. Personal connections between students and teachers impact the intrinsic motivation of students and best promote the achievement of our Expected Student Outcomes: Spiritual Formation, College Preparedness, and Cultural Engagement.  

 

Student-Centered Learning and Support


We take a student-centered approach to supporting and ensuring the success of all students. Each student and situation is unique, and Valor faculty seek to find the best solution for each student. Through a dedicated  9th Grade Seminar class, incoming freshmen are provided a curriculum focused on the essential qualities and skills necessary for academic and personal success at Valor. Additionally, fee-based academic support services are offered, ranging from peer tutoring and one-on-one coaching to accommodations and summer school. 

Endorsement Programs

Valor’s endorsement programs provide a tailored course of study based on areas of passion and core interest, differentiating students from peers as they approach college admissions. Students are given the opportunity to major in Applied STEM, Humanities, or Business. Upon program requirement completion, students receive endorsement program recognition on their diploma and special cords at commencement.
