Description:

The Quest for Excellence begins at Valley Christian Elementary School (VCES), where talented faculty and staff engage our students in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment that fosters a love of learning at a young age.

Core academic courses, special pull-out classes, after-school programs, and weekly chapels enrich the environment, establishing a solid foundation for future educational success. Specialized teaching is provided during the regular school day in fields such as art, choral music, computer science, hands-on science, instrumental music, library, P.E., and Spanish.

The Elementary campus provides extended day care before and after school for its students. Valley Christian Junior High School (VCJH) provides students with a thriving environment as they explore a departmentalized approach for all subjects. With a variety of academic options, students can pursue knowledge at a level that meets their specific needs. VCJH is an Intel School of Distinction and 2011 Star Innovator.

Extensive offerings in music, visual arts, theatre, and dance allow students to perform on professional stages such as the California Theatre and Disney’s California Adventure. Student-athletes participate in a balanced athletics program consisting of 22 teams competing in 11 different sports. With over 99% of its graduates continuing on to higher education,

Valley Christian High School (VCHS) prepares students not only for admission into college, but also success in their new and rigorous environment. An in-depth, enriched curriculum with biblical integration, close faculty-student relationships, diverse activities, and special programs give students the opportunity to explore a variety of disciplines leading them to achieve their God-intended purposes. Commitment to community service and individual responsibility are also strongly emphasized.

The Applied Math, Science, and Engineering (AMSE) Institute features 20 co-curricular activities to supplement the most advanced STEM training. The Conservatory of the Arts Program offers concentrated majors and minors in music, theatre, dance, theatrical design and technology, visual arts, or cinematic arts, with student ability levels and college portfolios enhanced through extensive performances, recitals, and competitions. The Human Performance Center provides year-round sport specific training to maximize strength, power, speed, and athletic performance for all VCHS athletes. Need-based financial grants are available. Busing is also available throughout the South Bay Area.
