High School

High School students are on a four-year journey to becoming young adults, ready to make a significant mark on the world. Freshman year is about unity and focusing on embracing an others-centered mindset within a community of learners. The Journey Days adventure in the early part of the year infuses students with a necessary bond to do life together for their high school tenure. Sophomores focus on interdisciplinary learning through an intentional blending of diverse ideas in all subject areas. Each teacher works to weave economics, arts, sciences, and humanities throughout the curriculum. Upperclassmen start junior year as a time for building. They continue to construct foundational values of citizenship and engaging as an emerging adult intellectually, socially, and spiritually. Seniors get set for moving beyond high school through a year of focusing on their value system, unique design, and purposes and passion God’s has placed in their lives.

Advisory

At Valley every student is known and loved.

Our intimate Advisory groups highlight the benefits of a small school setting. Groups of 7 – 12 students meet for 20 minutes twice a week. Teens find social, emotional, spiritual, and academic support from peers and an individual teacher. Advisory activities include discussions of current or school issues, games, snacks, and sometimes just time spent together. Advisories are assigned freshman year, and students remain with this “family” throughout their high school career.
