Valley Harvest Christian School

From the Pastor

Hello Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Valley Harvest Christian School. I commend you for realizing the importance of bringing your child up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The Word of God instructs us to teach His commandments diligently and daily, always keeping His Word before their eyes.

Valley Harvest Christian School partners with Christian parents to faithfully answer that call. Our pledge to you is that our environment will be wholesome and Christian. Our textbooks and literature will be Christian-based, and Christian character traits will be taught and modeled on our campus.

Our teachers and staff will be people of proven Christian character and influence.

Our standard of education will be one of excellence and our academics will be affirmed by standardized achievement tests. Prayer and Bible reading will be a part of every child’s school day.

As we serve together, your child will receive a well-rounded education with a Christian world view. Again, thank you for considering Valley Harvest Christian School. We are here for you and your child!

From The Administrator


 I would like to thank you for your interest in Valley Harvest Christian School. V.H.C.S. is a ministry of Valley Harvest Ministries. It is our goal to prepare students in their academic life and spiritual walk.  V.H.C.S. has partnered with the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) program to provide a high quality, individualized education experience.

With a traditional educational philosophy centered on the Word of God, A.C.E. has structured a highly adaptable school format that works for both small and large student bodies. The Learning Center concept allows students in multiple levels to learn in the same room. With “supervisors” replacing the role of teachers, students can learn at their own pace with individual, one-on-one assistance. Students learn to take responsibility for their own learning.
The A.C.E. program helps churches and parents accomplish The Forgotten Biblical Mandate given to us by God in the Holy Scriptures. A.C.E. Packet of Accelerated Christian Education (P.A.C.E.) system has been tried and proven to be very effective in providing all the basic academic disciplines as well as instilling Godly character into the lives of students. The reasons why the A.C.E. program works can be summarized in these seven key foundational concepts:
  • Integration of Biblical Principles (scripture memory, wisdom principles)
  • Godly Character Training (A.C.E. characters, 90-character traits of Christ)
  • Mastery-Based Learning
  • Built-In Reinforced System of Learning
  • Individualized Learning
  • Development of Critical Thinking Skills
  • Socialization

We look forward to working together with you and your student(s). Please do not hesitate to contact the school for any questions or concerns.

Statement of Faith

Valley Harvest Christian School is an independent, non-denominational school, that is a ministry of Valley Harvest Ministries. We are a school operating as one body with many denominational faiths. V.H.C.S. will not discriminate against any denomination of the Christian Faith.  We recognize that we are one body pressing towards one goal. “I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
We believe in:
  • The plenary, verbal inspiration of the Bible, equally and in all parts and without error;
  • The one God, eternally existent Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created man by a direct, immediate act;
  • The preexistence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension to Heaven, and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ;
  • The fall of man, the need for regeneration by the operation of the Holy Spirit through personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior on the basis of grace alone, and the resurrection of every person to either eternal life or eternal damnation;
  • The spiritual relationship of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, living a life of righteous works, separated from the world, and witnessing of His saving grace through the ministry of the Holy Spirit;
  • The Biblical mandate of the Great Commandment and the Great Commission for all Believers to proclaim the Gospel and to disciple all nations.
