    VALLEY VIEW CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

    OUR EVERETT AFFILIATE



    Valley View Christian School story “We exist to glorify God by building Godly character in our students by guiding them to make right choices that will determine future responses.” Our purpose statement is taken by application from Proverbs 20:11 “Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right.” True education cannot take place unless character building is at the heart of the education process. To train a child to make a living does not guarantee he or she will know how to live. Train a child how to live and the student will have no problem making a living. A former Washington State Superintendent of Instruction once stated that the purpose of education is to “prepare our students to compete in a global economy.” This goal is wholly inadequate and ignores the human condition and views our children as mere biological economic machines serving the interests of the State.

    Valley View Christian was founded in 1981 and is dedicated in seeking to produce students of character with the highest academic achievement. We are a school with grades Pre-K3 through 12th grade with four high school graduate programs. A high percentage of our graduates go on to college and further graduate work.

    A competitive interscholastic high school sports program in boys’ basketball and girls’ volleyball is an integral part of the students’ development and host tournaments in our full-size gym facility.

    Grades 9 through 12 compete yearly at the Northwest Regional Student Convention in music as well as the full range of academic, arts, and athletic events.

    Our dedicated staff has an average tenure of 15 years and a deep love for the children in their classes. Partnering with the parents to develop the whole child is a high priority.

    We do not seek state approval by a state or government agency. We believe that such approval is an administrative mechanism designed in an attempt to attain uniform education for all children in government schools. This process was established as a governmental means of causing local public school districts to meet what the state educational agencies determined to be minimum academics and facility standards for government schools. Accreditation teams, therefore, investigate and approve or disapprove facilities and curriculum in educational institutions according to the criteria developed by secular educational administrators who may or may not be Christians.

    Accreditation of a private Christian school is not necessary for the graduate to enroll in a college or university. Registrars of such institutions are interested in the academic merits of individual students, not the name of the school where they have earned their diploma. Thus they evaluate each applicant's academic aptitude through nationally standardized tests (SAT or ACT).

    Therefore, VVCS does not seek approval of entanglement with any agency of the government that would endanger the identity and/or the unity of the ministries of Valley View Bible Church.

    AN ACCREDITED PROVIDER

    We do not seek state approval by a state or government agency.

    Accreditation of a private Christian school is not necessary for the graduate to enroll in a college or university. Registrars of such institutions are interested in the academic merits of individual students, not whether the school where they have earned their diploma was accredited. Thus they evaluate each applicant's academic aptitude through nationally standardized tests (SAT or ACT).
    While most public Washington State High Schools are accredited, not all are. Each school, public or private, decides if they want to go through the accreditation process. You would need to contact each school individually to determine their status.
