The Al Nelson Memorial Scholarship testifies to the legacy and generosity of longtime teacher, coach, and friend of VCS, Al Nelson. When Al passed in 2018, he asked that the money left from his estate be gifted to Valley Christian, and that a “math scholarship” would be made available. This scholarship is intended for an exceptional math/STEM student graduating from VCS, aspiring to a math or STEM career. The recipients will have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and will have participated in clubs, programs, teams, etc. This year’s winners of the Al Nelson Scholarship are Archer Hsu and Lilly Zienkewicz! ...

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.”

– VCS Senior

“The school is doing an exceptional job in educating our students, and I am inspired by the growth and progress of the school.”

– U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema

“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!”

The tight knit community of parents and families at the school are super supportive and involved in making Valley Christian a better place.”
