We chose AVCS for our son when he was entering High School. He had a fantastic Freshman year and flourished academically. The classical approach to learning implemented at this school was a huge part of why our son had such a successful year. The teachers and staff are excellent and challenged our son to work hard and do his best. He enjoyed playing baseball and basketball and grew as an athlete as well. Highly recommend this school for parents seeking a quality Christian education for their children.

Apple Valley Christian is an amazing school with teachers whos dedication shows!! The staff is very warm and friendly. My daughter loves the drama class. I'm grateful that she doesn't experience any bullying at this school, even as a freshman. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who's looking for a safe school that also academically challenges their children!

Our children attended AVCS throughout all of their school years and graduated as valedictorians. Very qualified teachers and solid academics. Family-like atmosphere with teachers that really care about their students. Scholar-athlete emphasis with their teams frequently presented with CIF Scholar Athlete awards. All of our children were accepted at universities with scholarships.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
