West Valley Christian Academy is an independent, non-profit Christian Elementary and Pre-school, emphasizing Christian character and academic excellence, from Preschool through 6th Grade.
Our spiritual emphasis is the practical application of Biblical principles through the teaching and memorizing of the Word of God.
We believe that when high standards of academic excellence are combined with the teaching of basic spiritual and moral principles for daily living, as set forth in the Bible, we will produce students who are not merely knowledgeable, but will know how to think and apply the knowledge they continue to acquire throughout their lives.
The educational approach of our school is eclectic - combining the best of traditional and creative philosophies with a strong emphasis on the mastery of basic skills.
Social development, moral standards and emotional health are the combined products of both home and school.
Physical Education plays an important part in growing physically and developing healthy exercise habits for a lifetime.
Students also gain an understanding of the important concepts of teamwork, sacrifice and hard work for a worthy goal.
