School Leaders

Mr. Gabe Shirey - West Division President

I firmly believe tier-1 education and a distraction-free learning environment should be an unassailable right that is accessible to each and every student.  My lifelong passion has been in creating scholastic environments that inspire, engage, and “edu-tain” our children in a safe, moral, and wholesome environment.  The best educational experience should be available to all children, regardless of their background.

Fun facts and random information include a (semi) serious obsession with golf, on-demand princess tea parties with my daughters, time spent with our furry family member, and cooking my way into my wife’s good graces.  I’m an ardent supporter of charitable organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters and The First Tee, as my volunteering spirit began in my youth as a cub scout. I also speak fluent Italian if you ever need a tour guide in Rome (or just dinner at Bucca di Beppo).

Life at Valor Preparatory Academy

Education based on R.A.I.S.E leadership values

To us, education is more than a textbook and reading lesson. Education is an experience that nurtures our students' natural talents and helps them become well-rounded individuals and active members of their community. Through our R.A.I.S.E (respect, accountability, integrity, service, and excellence) values, we're able to help reinforce the values you teach at home in our classrooms.
