Elementary and Junior High Curriculum and Programs
Valley Christian Schools provide a hands-on science curriculum and a targeted elementary
math program. This advanced approach creates the opportunity for students to accelerate
their academic rigor to match their gifts, allowing qualified students to reach pre-algebra
in sixth grade, algebra in seventh grade and geometry in eighth grade. Many of our high
school students begin with Algebra II or higher, allowing them to participate in four years
of advanced mathematics while in high school. Students may choose to take Algebra II
during the summer in order to begin Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus as a high school freshman.
Junior high science students may complete earth science in sixth grade, physical science in
seventh grade, and biology in eighth grade, allowing them to proceed with four years
of advanced lab sciences in high school. A number of after-school programs also exist to supplement the in-classroom experience with great hands-on opportunities
to allow the student to implement what was learned in the classroom.
High School Curriculum and Programs
The curriculum in math, science and applied technology offers the high school student with exciting opportunities to learn from some of the very best educators in these fields. In addition, the high school also offers exciting after-school programs to supplement the in-classroom experience with great hands-on opportunities to allow the student to implement what was learned in the classroom.
