Our Admissions Process includes a few steps planned to help your family in making the decision for a Valley Christian education.
You may have already participated by attending an Admissions Open House Event, Preview or personal tour. We want you to know us well and understand how we partner in education. You're invited to a concert or athletic event so you can get a stronger sense of our outstanding programs and our community.
At every step along the way we're available to answer questions and connect you with teachers and other staff members. You can always start by speaking with Leann Bakker or Dianne Grasmeyer in Admissions. They are happy to help your process.
