Our Faculty & Staff

At Valley Christian, class sizes are small, allowing our teachers to actively involve each student in the learning process. VCS teachers have time to know each student and their special gifts and provide support and mentoring.  Faculty and staff interact with students in a number of different roles as members of the Valley Christian community.  They are coaches, advisors, supporters in the audience and invested in seeing our students succeed.  Our faculty are also master teachers in their subject area.  Over half of our faculty have advanced degrees, including four with doctorates.
