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.
