A Message from the Director
January 20, 2015
Valley Academy is home to four hundred and seventeen outstanding students. Faculty and Staff at Valley Academy are committed to excellence and dedicated to meeting the needs of a diverse student population. Valley Academy promotes the visual and performing arts, band students begin as early as the third grade. Opportunities for choir, strings, and drama are available to all students. We are planning to offer guitar classes, while looking forward to our new piano Lab coming in the spring. Valley Academy Charter School is a free public school.
Valley Academy takes pride in offering our students the technology necessary to succeed in today’s world of education. Students are working from Ipads, Chrome books, and laptops. Having access to our lab for testing, and keyboarding instruction is a priority for all students. We are fortunate to have skilled teachers, and educational resources like Southern Educational Development Center to provide us with the best access to technology possible.
Valley Academy students receive instruction in the art of social emotional wellness. Studies show, that emotional intelligence is the best predictor of a child’s future achievement. Children’s emotional and social skills can be cultivated, so that the child will accrue both short-term and long-term advantages in regard to well-being, performance and success in life. Valley Academy will continue to implement and infuse social emotional learning into our daily curriculum; our teachers are honing their social and emotional skills through workshops, self study, and parents too can bring social and emotional learning into their daily lives. We invite you to participate in an atmosphere that provides support for social and emotional learning that you may also realize the huge difference it makes in life.
We are excited about our partnerships with the Hurricane Chamber of Commerce, Walmart Distribution Center, and Brian Head Ski Resort We invite the community to visit us at Valley Academy, take a tour of our facility, or visit our website, and facebook pages. We look forward to meeting you, and welcome your ideas and support.
