Going to SVC has been one of the best experiences I've ever had.

I was privileged to attend from 1996-2000. Spring Vale was an incredible gift to me. The faculty and students shaped me spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. In addition to advanced placement courses, ACT tutoring, and other academic resources, I was able to participate in numerous extra-curricular activities including student government, athletics, and service/leadership development. As a boarding student, the school became home and family for me. I was honored to become part of a legacy of Christian education that has shaped thousands of students over many decades. The work of Spring Vale continues as staff and faculty innovate and grow to meet the changing Christian education demands of contemporary society. Check out what they offer and see if it is a resource for your family!

I really appreciate Spring Vale. I am currently a staff member. I am also an alumni and i fully endorse this school. The family atmosphere is unique and I have made life long friends here. The low student to teacher ratio allows teachers to spend quality one on one time helping students.

I didn't attend Spring Vale as a student but instead joined this wonderful community as a staff member almost 6 years ago. Through this experience, I have been tremendously blessed and am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of such a special place. I encourage everyone who wants to be in a Godly environment, either as a student, faculty member, or volunteer, to consider Spring Vale. You will be blessed too!

Spring Vale is a great school to make good grades and supportive friends. The environment here is nice and great to focus on school. Spring Vale is true to its name: Christian School. Every day we are learning about god with daily chapels,bible classes, and dorm devotions.

Springvale has really changed my life for the better I was even baptized almost a year from now. Also, my family generations before I went to school here and worked here.

I loved my 4 years as a student at Spring Vale and have been on staff for over 10. There is no place I would rather work.

I attended SVCS in the 1980s and my daughter attended and graduated in 2011. We both felt that attending a smaller Christian school helped us to feel important and not overlooked in a larger setting. For me, I enjoyed the small class sizes and individual attention I received. I also enjoyed feeling KNOWN. God blessed me through the staff and students at SVCS and I am so thankful for the two years I attended! I would highly recommend to others!

Being the parent of an alumni and a wife of an alumni and now part of the Spring Vale team I see the importance that this school plays in the lives of students and staff and our community. I highly recommend this school.

I am an Alumni/parent of 3 grads and 1 current student. The education, Spiritual/character guidance, sports programs, and community support and involvement are remarkable for well-rounded students. This school teaches students to. E thinkers, not just learners. I love this school!

I have experienced SVC as a student, as a parent of a student, and as a SVC team member. My experiences here have been life changing and I would recommend SVC to anyone seeking a high quality Christian education that helps instill Godly character in the students and prepares young people to stand firm in their faith.

The teachers, administrators, and staff have a real heart for reaching and discipline young men and women in Christ. They seek out troubled kids who need personal discipleship to help transform their lives in Christ.

My wife Teresa and I both graduated from Spring Vale in the early '70s. For us, it was an ideal environment of academics and extracurricular involvement, built on a solid foundation of faith, in a Christ-centered environment. Our daughter Marty graduated from Spring Vale in 2001, and both she and we were pleased with her experience there. Randy Brunson

Spring Vale provided solid education for me in my High School years. I am a 1958 graduate.My life has taken many turns and today I find myself still using the basic principals that I learned there.Basic education is just the start of what Spring Vale does so well. Life long friends that serve God and give back to their families, churches, communities, and country are the continued result of the Spring Vale experience.

Both my children graduated from Spring Vale Christian School as well as three generations of Coulson's before them. I have been extremely pleased with the staff and students at SVCS. The staff are dedicated to teaching both academics and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend Spring Vale Christian School.

Wow! The faculty and teachers at Spring Vale are so helpful! I loved my experience there as a student and am excited to give back as an Alumnus! If you are looking for a boarding schoo, I highly recommend Spring Vale!

Church affiliation is not Adventist. It is Church of God 7th Day. As a former student and a former staff member, I highly recommend this school.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
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?
