WELCOME!

 

Valwood challenges each student to strive for academic excellence through a program founded on a rigorous, traditional college-preparatory curriculum. The curriculum is designed to foster intellectual curiosity and to enable each student to read with understanding, think critically and creatively, speak fluently, and write effectively. In an effort to educate the whole student, Valwood supports and encourages participation in the arts, athletics, and experiences in the natural world.

Development of strong character, the values of integrity, honesty, and fair play and a desire to serve others are important attributes stressed daily at Valwood. The Valwood experience prepares its students to face the challenges of college, career, and life with maturity, intelligence, skill, courage, grace, humor, and dignity.

Valwood teachers encourage each student to strive for his or her own personal best. Small classes at every level facilitate one-on-one instruction that ensures the teacher’s unencumbered interest in each student’s success.
