We are Valley Christian Schools

Valley Christian Schools is a ministry of Brave Church

For a half-century Valley Christian Schools has provided a quality holistic Christian education for children in the city of Dublin and the greater Tri-Valley area. Valley Christian stands out as a community of learners, partnering with parents, to ensure every child is loved and equipped for an unknown and promising future.

At Valley Christian, our program guides students to explore their passion, identify their calling, and change the culture.

We believe the journey through life is best done in community and in deep relationships. For this reason, Valley Christian’s teachers, coaches, and staff work with intention to make each child feel known and loved.

Whether our students are drawn to business and industry, the arts, education, vocational service, or faith-based fields, they have the potential to impact the world as robust thinkers with compassion, innovation, and a deeper message of truth about God’s love for people. Our graduates launch with a firm grasp of a personal mission. Our graduates are equipped to impact the world.

Valley Christian seeks to develop courageous, thoughtful, and creative young leaders through excellent interdisciplinary, holistic, and rigorous Christian education.

Why Christian Education?

The aspects of human development, including character, values, attitudes, health, faith, social interactions, technical skills and academic knowledge, are present in every educational institution. Christian education is distinctive in philosophy, expectations, approach, and content. Christian schools provide parents an opportunity to select a particular philosophy and environment to shape their children.

Each family is a partner with the school, supporting every endeavor to shape their child and to invest in the community as a vibrant, God-honoring place of holistic growth spiritually, socially, and academically.
