From Valley School of Ligonier

Valley School of Ligonier is a private K-9 day school nestled in the Laurel Highlands on 400 acres of pristine woodlands. It has 166 students, and a student-teacher ratio of 6 to 1. Tuition is $15,145 for all grades. Tuition assistance is available to qualifying families. After graduation, students matriculate to regional private and public schools and distant boarding schools.

Valley School was founded in 1946 on the premise that school should be a happy, nurturing, and child-centered place where students build academic skills, and—just as importantly—learn to become responsible, humane adults. Today, we continue to offer a holistic, inquiry-based education that emphasizes traditional values—academic ambition, empathy, integrity, and respect for self and others—alongside 21st century skills like intellectual curiosity, communication, collaboration, creativity, cross-cultural competence, diversity of experience, critical thinking, and positive global citizenship.

"The Heart of a School"

In 2019 Valley, School opened the doors of the Cathey Family Young Adult Center, a new section of the library curated to appeal especially to young adults. The Center features a fireplace, expanded book collection, flexible seating, and mobile work surfaces. It is a wonderful place that beckons students to slow down and spend mindful time enjoying one another's company and working together.
