Excellent programs and teachers that challenge students to grow and develop a Christian worldview while preparing and developing the students for college and careers. Outstanding extra-curricular opportunities including a nationally-ranked Robotics program, one of the most successful athletic programs in the state and an award-winning and nationally recognized music program.
We have had two children graduate from Valley, we currently have a senior there, and will have a freshman there next year. We have been mostly satisfied over the years with the school. It is true, there have been some unsatisfactory teachers over these years, but for the most part they have been weeded out. The school has also been through a lot of changes with the administration, and we feel over the past couple of years they have made real, positive changes in this area. We are very excited with the new administrator for this year, and look forward to the next four years, under his direction. He is placing the school on a path, along with the teacher, of coming along side the parents, in the Spiritual development of the students. There is incredible opportunities in academics, sports, music, the arts etc. My kids have made life long friends at VCHS and we would highly recommend this school.
There are people in this world who aren t just nice to your children, who aren t just excellent teachers, but are people God places in your children s lives you reach in & mold who they are. VCHS is filled with teachers & coaches who have done this for all 4 of our children. We have 2 boys & 2 girls who are very sports oriented,& Valley has allowed them to play on multiple state championship teams.Our kids have traveled with the highly acclaimed Trojan Choir, served in the community & school government, participate in national medical forums,& are being offered college scholarships from across the country due to the high academic level Valley has brought them to.God has answered our prayers through the incredible,God-pursuing peers they've found at Valley.There are young people there who live life to the fullest & push our kids to be their very best.We have a home where Christ reigns & wanted a school which would come alongside us to help grow them into adults who would be well equipped to serve Him, using the gifts He gave each of them to the fullest,& most of all, that would feed their fire for our Savior. We found that in Valley Christian High School. We have been truly blessed.
I enthusiastically recommend Valley Christian to anyone who wants to give their child an excellent education in a truly Christian environment. Academically, Valley has helped my children to rise to their full potential and allowed them to be a part of a wide range of extracurricular activities. When my older daughter graduated, she received numerous scholarship offers and is currently doing very well in college. The teachers and staff at Valley really make the difference. They are wonderful Christian role models for the students because they are able to speak from their own life experiences about how having a relationship with Christ helps them every day. Is it worth the tuition? Yes! We have used ACSTO and TRIP to make it possible for our kids to attend Valley. If you want to learn more about the school, one of the best ways to do this is to attend one of the open houses offered throughout the year. I did this about 7 years ago and am so glad I did!
Valley Christian High School has made a tremendously positive impact on our family! We have finally found a place where our child can thrive by using the gifts that God has given him. If your child is an athlete, Valley has a place for your child. If you child is into the Arts, Valley has many opportunities in this area. Perhaps, one of our favorite classes, Ministry Development is available for the child who wants to lead or support chapel services and ministry opportunities. The teachers at Valley are called and committed, and because of this are able to connect with students, meet them where they are, and help them grow in their knowledge and in their faith. I want no other school for either of my kids. Valley is definitely the school of choice for our family!
We have two children currently attending Valley Christian and they both love it. The teachers at Valley really care about our kids and want them to succeed. The Christ centered curriculum has enriched both of their lives. Because of the size of the school, our kids have been able to be involved in a variety of activities, from sports to drama. Our son is a senior this year and has been able to obtain a number of scholarships that will make college a reality for him.
Valley Christian High School has been an outstanding school for my 2 boys to attend. After sending our 2 older kids to a public school, we love the Christ-centered curriculum, and the "family" nature of this school. My boys both played sports here in a very competitive environment with great christian coaches. I would highly recommend this high school.
Valley has been a great experience for our kids. We were amazed at how many graduating seniors received full-ride scholarships to major universities, along with appointments to the military acadamies. Our kids liked the smaller more personal setting, without sacrificing activities in sports. They must have just about all the same sports activities as 5A schools, but the chance to participate was so much better at Valley.
We LOVE Valley Christian High School! Our son attended VC and graduated in 2010. These were the best four years of his life to date. He found his place, was able to excell in everything from academics to sports. He made life long friendships with students, teachers & his coaches. He was well prepared to attend a 4 year top rated private college where his is excelling all because of Valley Christian High School. We are not wealthy and were able to send our son there because of the Arizona private school tuition tax credit program. We did not feel out of place due to income status. We have another child approaching high school years and we will consider no other high schools besides VC.
Valley Christian High School is an excellent private high school. The teachers and staff have an attitude that the students success is their success. If you are looking for a wholesome spiritual environment, excellent academics, arts, and athletics, look no further. I have seen my student mature in all areas. The community is welcoming and family oriented. This was the best investment we've made for our student. I believe at graduation our son will be well prepared for college and carry with him a solid spiritual foundation.
As a graduate I can say that I grew spiritually during my time at VCHS. I made some great friends there including teachers who genuinely cared for me. I'm doing just great in college.
Our first year at VCHS has been everything we had hoped for in a school. The school is able to keep a good balance between rigorous academic emphasis, spiritual emphasis, and activities.
Our family has enjoyed a wonderful four years at Valley Christian High School. He has matured academically and socially and has his college plans all set having received solid guidance and instruction. We are very thankful for the wonderful faculty and administrtion who genuinely care for students.
Gives high expectations with how it is presented, but doesn't live up to its own hype. Poor academic quality and hypocritical on ethics and morals.
Valley was the best decision I ever made. I graduated a few years ago, but I still go back and catch up with my old teachers.
Too small to build any long-lasting, real friendships. Some good teachers, mostly bad. Much too conservative to have any real diversity
I had my child attend this school and graduate last year. My otherchild will be a freshman will be attending another Christian High School. Valley has some good qualities but over the years they have become nothing but a high priced private school. The academics are not challenging, drug issues, teen pregnancy and the most lewd behaviors at school dances are the norm. This is not my idea of a Christian School but is far better than a Public School. In the early years when my son attended, again he graduated in 2008 this school was the best of the best. The new admistrator came in and the school became very liberal. I hope that Valley Christian becomes once again the school it was at one time.
Not satisfied! Except the small school atmosphere which was appealing I didn't see any benefits of this school verses a better public school. An overload on religious imput (unless you want to be a minister or go that route) but the Christian attitude wasn't there. High tuition, limited choices and the lunch room is a joke.
My child has done very well in this school, The small school atmosphere has been good for him. I found the teachers my child had were very responsive and cared about him. The students seem to be very nice and well mannered. I only wish the school had a bigger variety of elective classes. They seem to be lacking in that area. Also, the tuition is very high.
