Home School Philosophy

For many years, Valley Christian School has provided Christian education to students in both a classroom setting and a home school setting. In September 2011, a DL program was added as well.

We believe that a Christian education should include both academic teaching and the equipping of students to know and lovingly respond to God, deal creatively with life's challenges, and learn to love and serve others for now and in preparation for eternity.

Consistent with the view of the home as the first and most important force in the education of children, parents who want their home program to reflect their Christian values and their church's fundamental matters of faith and practice will find the VCS Home School program a very good option. We are here to provide support, encouragement and respect to home schooling families.
