Why a Christian Education

Early in my teaching career, I found myself in a public school just shy of being considered inner city Detroit. At this school, I encountered so many physical and social needs within my students and their families. I struggled each and every day with how to best help and care for them. 

I prayed multiple times a day for several of them, but I lacked the permission to share with them the ONE who could be of help, Jesus Christ. At the conclusion of that year, I vowed to teach at a Christian school where I would have that permission to actively share my faith and have the ability to weave it into everything that I taught.  

The promise of eternal life through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ gives the faculty and staff at Valley Lutheran School a hope to share with our students. Teaching each subject from a Biblical worldview trains our students to filter every subject through the lens of Scripture. Academics are extremely important at Valley; but just as important is for each of our students to have a strong faith that will lead and guide them.  

Strong academic skills and Christian character will allow our young people to be successful during their time here at Valley Lutheran School and far beyond. When you schedule an Educational Success Consultation with me, I’ll be able to hear about the hopes and dreams you have for your child. I’ll then take the opportunity to explain the lifetime of difference that an education, rooted in Biblical Truth, will make for your son or daughter. 

Not only have I seen this difference in the students I’ve taught, but I’ve watched it play out in the lives of my own three children, including my oldest, a 2017 graduate of Valley Lutheran. I look forward to meeting with you soon and sharing with you all that Valley has to offer!
