A Message from the Director
Dear Parents and Valley Academy Community,
Valley Academy Charter School is now well into its second year. The mission of Valley Academy is " to provide a superior, character building academic program, enhanced by integrated training in fine and performing arts, and a technologically advanced curriculum; in a Social Emotional Learning environment that promotes responsible freedom."
We intend to improve student learning based on four pillars: strong academic achievement, exposure to the arts as an integral part of each school day, significantly improved use of technology school wide, Social and Emotional Learning that will involve parents and the community as partners in the school.
We look forward to offering our summer school program for 2014. Classes will be structured to accommodate the students' academic needs as well as high interest electives for all students. We will welcome students from surrounding schools to be a part of Valley Academy's first summer program. Details and registration information will be made available on Valley Academy's website.
Valley Academy is excited about our new "Move it Track." Eventually we will have one more mile of trail for students to enjoy native habitat, be more active and health conscious while they explore this outdoor environment.
In closing, our 5th and 6th grade students attended and enjoyed the Shakespeare play "The Taming of the Shrew" in Cedar City. We are excited about our new bus and for the opportunities now open for educational trips apart from our school campus. We appreciate your support! We love what we do! Together we will "Make it Happen!"
Director, Valley Academy
