A Message from the Director
March 23, 2015
Dear Valley Academy Students and Parents,
The mission of Valley Academy is to provide a superior, character building academic program enhanced by integrated training in the fine and performing arts and a technologically advanced curriculum: in a Social Emotional Learning environment that promotes responsible freedom. Valley Academy Charter is a free public school
The Teachers at Valley Academy are state licensed, skilled and dedicated to providing a positive, productive, learning experience. Many of our teachers have advanced degrees, while others are completing their masters with endorsements in Reading, Gifted and Talented and Special Education. Continuing their education demonstrates their commitment to life long learning and their passion for teaching.
Valley Academy is proud of all four hundred and fifteen students. Students entering Kindergarten through Eighth grades have opportunities to experience not only a strong academic program, but also strong emphasis in the Arts. Visual art, dance, drama, orchestra, band and Spanish are part of our daily curriculum. Valley Academy will add piano and guitar classes for this coming fall. Students perform each month in talent shows, flash mobs, and have received superior ratings at SUPAF. School and Community courses have been available before and after school. Our dance room has been home to Yoga, cross fit, karate, and hip-hop. We invite you to take advantage of our facilities to share your talents and expertise with us at Valley Academy.
Bus transportation at the school is provided by Valley Academy. State funding is not afforded charter schools for bus service. Our drivers are state certified with over twenty years of service. Our present drop-off and pick-up design is much safer, and much more accommodating to parents who drive their children.
Valley Academy Charter School is the first and only charter school in Southern Utah serving a free and reduced breakfast and lunch on site. Our kitchen manager, and lunch workers are amazing, and are dedicated to making and serving quality and nutritious meals.
We invite you to experience an education the way it should be, at Valley Academy.
Our faculty and staff receive training each month in social emotional learning, technology, academics and arts integration. Understanding how your child learns, using the strategies that work best, with the support from parents are all key factors to a successful education. We care about your children, we want them to feel successful, and to know they are valued and loved while they are in our care.
We thank our parents, the PTO, and our school community for their support. We appreciate all they do for Valley Academy. The positive comments, productive thinking, and the hours spent by volunteers sharing their expertise, are some of the best things about our school. Thank you so much for standing behind us, supporting us, and working with us to provide a relevant and purposeful education for some truly exceptional students.
