Valley Catholic Elementary School provides an academically rich faith-filled learning environment, creating a Catholic values-based education. We are a joyous faith community building a personal relationship with God by focusing on prayer, service, and love for all of God’s creation. Recognizing the family as the primary educator, we form a partnership to educate the whole child; spiritually, intellectually, culturally, socially, emotionally and physically. While discovering our strengths and talents, we respect the dignity and diversity of each other. We maintain high academic and social standards, preparing students for lifelong learning, leadership and service in their community, country and world.
