To inspire a passion for Jesus Christ and to awaken God’s unique story in each student. To prepare all students for their specific callings through a Bible-based college preparatory experience that transforms them into forward thinking leaders, who are able to move beyond success to true significance within a complex global community.
We envision VCS as a premier school system where the Christian life is vibrantly expressed with purpose, passion and excellence. We see a place where teachers are passionate about students and teaching, where students are excited about learning, and where the parent-school partnership is energetically working together to create a life-changing experience for every student.
Philosophy of Education
Mankind is instructed to “train up a child in the way he should go,” but casual observation of our present society will show that humanity has ignored this God-given direction. One of the needs of today’s youth is to be trained and educated in total. Total education includes the development of academic excellence to the greatest potential of each student and the nurturing of the student to become a responsible and mature adult. The adult who willingly accepts the responsibility and consequences of his or her actions and serves as an agent of God’s cause in the world becomes a positive influence in society.
The successful endeavor of achieving this broad sphere of education mandates the training of the whole person, including the mind, the body, and the spirit. Holy Scripture places the responsibility of rearing and educating the child primarily and essentially on the parents. Therefore, the school will be an extension of the home in providing structure for both sound educational information and moral principles that are correct and internalized.
In accepting the basic premise that a complete education is the training of the whole person namely…the mind, the body and the spirit, it is realized that this kind of complete education can only be accomplished in a Christian school. The Christian school educational concept endeavors to train for a “complete life” instead of training only to make a living or learning how to adjust socially on a purely humanistic basis.
The life and work of Jesus Christ is our model for Christian living. Therefore, Valley Christian Schools encourage each young person to grow in faith, in hope, and in love, both individually and as part of the community. Biblical studies form the foundation of wisdom and knowledge. Christian living and Biblical subjects are taught from a Christian worldview and with a thorough commitment to the Bible as God’s inspired Word and the Person of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Savior.
