The admissions process at Valley School is meaningful and collaborative. Our goal is to partner with you in order to learn about your child’s development, needs, and abilities. We strive to understand what factors are most important for your child’s educational journey, and to illustrate to you what distinguishes our programs from others. Together, we will discover the ways in which your child can best thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

“Valley School for all” means that while we value community and connectedness, we also recognize and appreciate the uniqueness of each individual.
We believe that nurturing the curiosity of childhood creates a foundation for a lifelong love of learning. It is our joy, as a community, to see our students respond optimistically to challenges, develop a growth mindset, become competent and conscientious young adults, and exceed their own expectations.
