The mission of Valley Grande Elementary is to provide a Seventh-day Adventist Christ-centered environment derived from Biblical background and Christian philosophy in which youth may mature and develop spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.
In harmony with this purpose, students are provided with the opportunity to pursue a program which will prepare them for lifelong learning, more enriched and productive lives in the service of God, the church, and their fellow man.
Seventh-day Adventist education is dedicated “to restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul, that the divine purpose of His creation might be realized.
A knowledge of God, His plan for our redemption, and the kind of persons men and women may become as they are restored to His likeness is of first importance throughout the total school experience.
Students are given opportunities to accept Jesus as their personal Savior.
Each student is challenged to develop a personal sense of mission for giving the gospel message to all the world in preparation for the soon return of Jesus.
