Welcome to Valley Christian High School, a WASC accredited, diverse, private, coeducational, Christian school with around 470 students in 9th -12th grades. Our high school experience affords students a wide variety of academic and co-curricular activites including highly competitive athletics and robotics, fine arts, Service Learning and Wilderness Challenge courses. Students are presented with opportunities to stretch, grow and eventually reach their God-given potential as they prepare for their next steps in college and in life.
Academically we provide a rigorous education including six Honors courses and eleven Advanced Placement courses. After graduation, 97% of our students continue on to college. Our students attend each class four class periods a week including one extended class period in our modified block schedule. The Resource Program provides assistance for students with diagnosed learning issues.
As a part of the mission of Valley Christian High School, we believe that it is important for students to learn to live in gratitude for the abundance of blessings God has given them. Learning avenues of service as well as developing habits and patterns of servanthood are important Christian virtues. Each year our students have opportunities to serve both locally and globally. In recent years, we have traveled internationally to El Salvador, Peru, Tijuana, and Uganda, and domestically to Zuni, New Mexico.
Athletically, we field 40 teams in 22 different sports. We have celebrated 33 CIF Championships and 270 League Championships. Approximately 60% of our students are involved in athletics.
The Arts are alive at Valley Christian High School. Over 40% of our students perform in our choirs, bands or orchestra. Each spring our Broadway Showcase highlights our students’ abilities in performing arts. Students have the opportunity to pursue interests in the fine arts of painting, drawing, and ceramics.
Our campus is located on 33 acres in the city of Cerritos. Education is supported in our state of the art math and science classrooms. Students and faculty have access to 1-1 iPads. We use Canvas as our Learning Management System, and Power School is our Information Management System.
The highlight of our school is the faculty. Our experienced classroom teachers demonstrate a love for their students, their discipline, and Jesus Christ. This passion flows through individual and group interactions as the they instruct students in the process of making a difference for Jesus Christ in the world. Teachers have the ability to interact in a meaningful way with each student since we have an average class size of approximately 18 students. Our counselors, school psychologist, and experienced administrative team provide an excellent learning environment for our students.
