Valley Christian Elementary School

  • Since 1935, Valley Christian Schools has served as an extension of the home and a partner with the church in Christian education.
  • From Pre-Kindergarten to High School graduation, VCS is dedicated to bringing all students to their highest potential academically, socially and spiritually.
  • Opportunities for developing social, spiritual, and physical gifts are offered by a caring and supportive staff, centered in a love and commitment to Jesus Christ.
  • In the light of the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the authority of God's word, we will educate each unique student to cooperate with the Christian community so that he or she is equipped and inspired to make a difference for Jesus Christ in the world.
  • Because every student is created in God's image, we will educate in a manner that affirms people and honors their individual uniqueness.
  • Because God has given parents responsibility for the nurture and training of their children, we will help them fulfill this calling in partnership with the church.
  • We provide students with models, opportunities, skills, and information necessary to become caretakers of God's creation and healing agents in a broken society.
