Valley Christian School Home School Program


Brochure>

Valley Christian School has been helping home school families for 25 years.
Our primary goal is to assist parents who choose to home school their children. We do this by having monthly conferences with a certified teacher, who also has experience as a homeschool parent. Families receive help with curriculum decisions, lesson planning and annual testing. Students have the option of working at home and/or taking part in weekly homeschool classes.

Our desire is to partner with parents in the development of Godly character, study skills, problem-solving and writing abilities, classroom etiquette and healthy social development in their children. We provide outreach opportunities and annual events such as the Christmas Fellowship, Science, Literature or History Symposium.  Families are encouraged and welcomed to attend the all school service projects, The Panther Project the first Friday in October, along with the Spring of PROMiSE which is held in the Spring.
