Our private school model, partnering with the best, is a formula for academic success and preparedness for high school and beyond.
We believe that the following three innovative educational programs will set apart West Valley Christian School located in West Hills from most private schools.With Acuity, the Elite Athletic Program, and Carnegie Education, I am confident that WVCS has a bright future in West Hills! To ensure a commitment to the most rigorous educational program we have replaced the outdated norms of Stanford achievement tests with the superior Common Core standards and Terra Nova achievement tests.
To further our commitment to excellence our school will continue to be accredited by WASC, keep class sizes under 25 students, allow students to use their own one-to-one tablets, and will continue to teach with iPads and interactive boards.
Our campus facilities include new buildings, spacious playgrounds, green space, security cameras, gated entrance, nutritional food, computer lab, library, performing arts auditorium and a 9,000 sq.

gym with weight room.
But above all, I invite you to investigate the most innovative component to our 21st century Christian education: Our award winning educational technology program.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qz-vRechpQc

School Notes:

  • "School Distinctives - discover the difference"Academics - We showcase our 21st Century education with award winning Common Core assessment data to provide instructional resources for our "Gate" program or "Recovery" program. Ipads and Smartboards are not effective unless you customize teaching to the individual needs of the students. Our school has partnered with the nations leading publisher to pin point skills gaps in critical thinking skills in math and language arts. We define our secondary school education with state-of-the-art virtual desk top computers for our highschool program. Highschool students can receive dual credits for college and highschool. Middle school students can opt to take over 15 online classes at school - we call it "blended-education".Athletics - National Basketball program: Velocity sports performance training with professional coaches and 45 players from 9 club teams came to tryouts (limited space). 4 years olds through 8th grade with 60 minutes per day of training. Arts - Elementary through highschool have art classes in spacious art room with access to all forms of art. Our Performings Arts program is included for all ages, during school hours and during our after school enrichment prorams. Similar to our Sports School we will be adding a Theatre Arts school with 60 minutes a day of training in dance, music and acting.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buLAlS3lnbshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PhrmIDb07Q Our private school model, partnering with the best, is a formula for academic success and preparedness for high school and beyond.

Our private school model, partnering with the best, is a formula for academic success and preparedness for high school and beyond. We believe that the following three innovative educational programs will set apart West Valley Christian School from most private schools. The award-winning Acuity® InFormative Assessment™ solution from CTB/McGraw-Hill helps educators immediately impact student achievement. Acuity goes beyond traditional assessments by helping teachers focus on the concepts that need mastery early, before it’s too late. Designed to introduce Common Core assessments gradually but effectively, teachers can now jumpstart readiness and enthusiasm for elementary and secondary schooling. The Acuity solution enables teachers to assess early learners in Math and English Language Arts using audio-enabled, age-appropriate and research-based Common Core assessment content. Additionally, our instructional resources, including BrainPOP Jr., keep early learners engaged while allowing teachers to diagnose and measure deeper levels of student understanding. Ongoing usage across multiple grade levels results in overwhelmingly positive feedback from students, teachers, and administrators. As a parent, if you are looking for additional challenges for the advanced learner or how we can reach your child needing intervention, discover how WVCS will provide an innovative 21st century education! Award-winning Acuity Assessment solution is now at WVCS!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qz-vRechpQcWe are encouraging athletes of all clubs to “attend school with your teammates” so you can access our one-of-a-kind athletic program that partners with Velocity Sports PerformanceSM trainers, a national athletic franchise company, to provide daily 60 minute PE classes. Under the direction of our Elite Athletic Department, former professional athletes will oversee the implementation of daily training, assessment, nutritional diet, discipline, time management and player ranking. West Valley Christian School will deliver an athletic curriculum, in which Velocity Sports Performance methodology will be incorporated, taught by strength and conditioning performance coaches. With the use of iPads, student assessment data can pin point instruction for each athlete. YouTube: Velocity Sports Performance – Santa Clarita.For High School students we offer a blended education. With blended education, students take online classes while attending classes each day under the supervision of a teacher. The quality of this unique “blended education” is unlike the traditional online education offered at many private schools, since there is a live teacher available to help students 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. An added value, in conjunction with DeVry University, we will offer the Dual Credit University program to prepare students for high school graduation and study toward a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree. To ensure our school will best serve this unique academic program The Carnegie School will oversee this blended Christian education. With Acuity, the Elite Athletic Program, and Carnegie Education, I am confident that WVCS has a bright future in West Hills! To ensure a commitment to the most rigorous educational program we have replaced the outdated norms of Stanford achievement tests with the superior Common Core standards and Terra Nova achievement tests.
