Valley Classical School (VCS) is a classical Christian school in the New River Valley that takes a collaborative approach to instruction. Below you will find brief descriptions of the key components of our educational approach. For more information about our school and curriculum, we encourage you to sign up for and attend one of our Information Meetings. Dates for upcoming events and RSVP forms can be found on our Events page. Sign up for our newsletter to receive additional school content and updates.
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.
Valley Classical School partners with families to cultivate a love of learning and a taste for what is true, good, and beautiful, equipping and inspiring each student to faithfully attend to God’s work.
