Valley Classical School (VCS) is a classical, college-preparatory, Christian school in the New River Valley that takes a collaborative approach to instruction.
For this coming year we will be offering grades Pre-K through 8th. We plan to expand the number of grades offered on a yearly basis until the school offers grades Pre-K through 12th.
We offer a Christian liberal arts and sciences education that draws from a variety of publishers to provide a broad, high-quality curriculum. For more information on our curriculum, we encourage you to sign up for and attend one of our Information Meetings.
We are members of the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) and the Classical Latin School Association (CLSA), and we are being supported and mentored by Trinity Classical School in Houston TX. Click here to read more.
Below you will find descriptions of what we mean by an education that is classical, collaborative, and Christ-centered.
We use proven teaching methods that align with a child's natural developmental stages, equipping students with tools for lifelong learning through the phases of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Our comprehensive curriculum is well rounded in the study of science, math, history, literature and poetry, English grammar, spelling, writing, Latin, and the arts.
Students attend class on campus with trained teachers two days a week, and then receive assignments to complete under the guidance of parents at home two to three days a week. This allows parents to share in the academic instruction of their children, but also provides the structure and benefits of the classroom environment.
A Christ-centered perspective in education means that the board, staff, and families of Valley Classical School are united in affirming our statement of faith. It also means that the way we think about and pursue the training of students is influenced by our understanding of the gospel and the truths of the Bible. Ultimately, what is true, good, and beautiful is rooted in Christ.
