Walla Walla Valley Academy aim to prepare students for the second coming of Christ by instilling in each a love for God, for learning, for life, and for service.
Our purpose is to provide students the opportunity, environment, and example of living a life with Christ.
Through competent and compassionate teaching we seek to inspire our students to develop Christ-centered skills and habits.
The faculty endeavors to inspire students toward developing basic skills of learning.
Networked computers provide students the skills and competitive edge they need.
While learning to work with today's technology, students must also develop good writing, effective speaking, sensitive listening skills and the ability to relate to people from all walks of life.
These are the basic building blocks in establishing productive working relationships with others.
Our teachers are dedicated to finding new methods and activities to ensure that each student has the opportunity to develop these skills.
