Our Goal: Keep Students and Staff Safe and Healthy!!
ZERO!! That’s the number of students at VCHS with COVID during last school year (in-person, all year).
ZERO!! That’s the number of faculty/staff at VCHS with COVID during last school year
We give honor and glory and praise to our Lord God for His safety and protection throughout the year! It was possible only by His grace, mercy, and love! We were in-person all year long with 96% of our students (some chose to be online) and 100% of our teachers. They were all amazing!
OUR GOAL: DO IT AGAIN IN 2021-2022, but with YOUR children with us!! Get enrolled now, before classes fill. ONLY 10-12 students per homeroom!

Our Goal: Another Successful Year of Learning!!
Many schools are bemoaning the fact that their students suffered great learning loss over the past school year. Not so at VCHS!! Results from the national achievement tests show VCHS students’ achievement levels average three or more years above grade level, in math, reading, science, grammar….
Teachers do not know which national test will be given, eliminating “teaching to the test”. We want to know what was taught and how well, who mastered what, and to what achievement level. It is a test that evaluates teachers and curricula, as well as students.
THAT’S what our teachers and students do. Keep small classes with fun and challenging lessons, and make significant gains!! Children love to learn by doing, and having teachers guide them.
Enroll your children and SEE the great results! Proven for over 40 years…PLUS, happy, smiling kids at the end of the day. Safe and happy…and learning!!!
Our Goal: Safe Return to School
It appears we may be headed for another tough year of the pandemic: July 19, there were 48 new cases in our county; a week later, July 26, there were 671 new cases.
National leaders said by July 1 everyone should be able to “go back to normal”…and millions did. News stories touted, “ Millions Flew to Vacations Today”.. for several days leading up to July 4th celebrations: at beaches, parades, concerts, sporting events…. And we see the results of that now.
We plan to return to school as we did last year: following strict disinfecting and sanitizing guidelines as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the CDC, Texas Education Agency, Texas Private Schools Accreditation Commission, and the National Christian Schools Association. We have ionization units installed in all our air-conditioning units to kill all pathogens within seconds, in addition to constant custodial disinfecting all surfaces, etc…
Enroll your children today. You can’t afford NOT to; our low tuition makes it possible. Your children deserve to be in a classroom free from bullying, drugs, fights (never have had a fight on our campus for 43 years!!) Our kids are taught to be kind to one another, treat others like you want to be treated…and other Biblical principles by which we live.

HIS Award Presented to Top Scholarship Student
Miss Debbie Guajardo was selected as the recipient of the HIS Award at VCHS for 2020-2021. The HIS award is the most cherished honor given, recognizing Honor, Integrity, and Spirituality characteristics in students who serve and honor Jesus Christ in their lives. Debbie has been a student at Valley Christian Heritage School since preschool, and Mrs. Rydl has had the honor of having Debbie in class every year since, as kindergarten teacher and Bible teacher. Debbie is the recipient of numerous scholarships, including as Valedictorian. She applied and was accepted at several four-year prestigious universities. She chose to attend Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, and will begin classes there in the fall.
She is a faithful Christian, and a member of the church of Christ at Donna.
Debbie is a service-minded leader, and served several organizations on campus – Student Council, SALT (Student Activity Leadership Team), National BETA Club, Big Sister, National Honor Society, and others. Small school environments give all students an opportunity to learn leadership skills and service to others.
