Yesterday was a historic day for students and families in Arizona. Governor Ducey signed a bill making our state the national leader in educational freedom and school choice. An inspiring event, we are thankful to all who worked so hard to make the day possible. We truly believe that families should have the ability to choose a school - public, private, charter, homeschool, etc. - that best fits their child's educational needs. We also believe that we should fund students, not systems. This legislation empowers families to make those decisions. As anti-school choice groups rally to walk back this freedom and put this on the ballot, we encourage you to share your support for school choice with your friends and family and to not support any effort or sign any petition by Save Our Schools. ...

What People Say About VCS

“Valley Christian changed my life. It revealed to me the value of character in a world that does not seem to believe in it any longer. This school has turned a shy, sad girl into someone on fire for life and thriving. I made friends, found my faith, found a community, found my passion, and found my life. My life will never be the same and I have Valley Christian to thank. It showed me who I wanted to be in this world, and gave me the skills to be able to achieve it. I could not better recommend a school to anyone. Valley Christian was so good to me, and I could not have asked for a better experience.”

“We are so happy to have found Valley Christian School! A year ago our family relocated from Colorado to Arizona. At the time my husband and I were both working/coaching at an amazing Christian school in Colorado. So, with our expectations very high, we set out in search of a great school and community for our family. Valley Christian very quickly rose to the top of our list and has far exceeded our expectations from day one. If you are looking for a school with academic excellence, professionalism, family-like community and a thriving spiritual culture, Valley Christian is a wonderful choice!”
