    Valor does a great job of preparing one for college. The teachers and staff there are great! Everyone there truly cares about their students and want to make a positive impact on their lives. The school is a great Christian environment that promotes their students to come to Christ. They have great athletics and arts programs which they excel in. I participated in athletics and I couldn't have had a better experience. I was apart of a great program and while we experienced much success, the relationships that I made with my fellow teammates and coaches was much more significant than the state championships. I am very thankful that I was able to attend such a great school!

    Valor Christian High School encompasses every part of a well rounded High School experience. There is so much that Valor has to offer, so many ways for students to grow in and out of the classroom. Valor has a prestigious academic program, successful athletics, and an outstanding arts program. Clubs and other school-wide activities provide outlets for all kinds of interests. Integrated into each of these things is a faith component. Students are encouraged to learn about the Christian belief system and decide for themselves whether or not it is something they wish to pursue, and if they do make that decision, they have the support and encouragement to flourish.
    As a former employee at Valor for two years, I can attest that the teachers generally are excellent and well-qualified people who truly care about the students.
    However, the entire culture of the school is dominated by athletics. While that's an important aspect of many kids' HS experience, there's a fine line where elevating on-field success and competitiveness over academic and behavioral standards is detrimental to the student. I've found the teachers are mostly in agreement that athletics play an outsized role in the school, but they're often arm-twisted by higher-level administrators into being overly flexible for students involved in athletics. If you look at the staff directory, you'll also notice considerable staff turnover year to year as many educators have grown tired of leaders who preach one thing and do another.
