Each student can develop to his or her fullest potential

Schools should help parents and students identify areas of special talent, and make sure no area of learning is neglected.

A safe, nurturing community is essential to academic excellence

In a community, everyone belongs and feels valued by the others.

Each individual is unique and deserves respect

Each person has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These rights accord each with dignity that is to be respected by all. Good schools set high standards for student behavior.

Academic excellence is the means to a full life

Academic learning develops a person’s capacities to enjoy life, to live cooperatively and comfortably with others, to contribute to the economic well-being of oneself and society and to be an active citizen.

Service to others is a responsibility of every educated person

Talents and abilities perfected through an education must be used to make a better world for all.

The young people of the 21st century who will make a positive difference are those who have received a sound education. We set high expectations so that all students can achieve.

Value Schools exists to provide a strong educational choice for parents of children in Kindergarten through 12th grades. Our mission is to establish and support high quality, values-based elementary and secondary charter schools for populations of students who have historically been underserved by the public school system.

When you join our community, you are part of a special group of dedicated parents, students and staff. You are asserting that you believe there is a better way to educate children. We set high expectations for students, parents, and staff. By each of us striving to do our best to help our children succeed, together we can be the "village" it takes to raise and educate the next generation.

Here at Value Schools, we are committed to the values that we hold dear:

  • Academic excellence is the means to a full life
  • Each student can develop to his or her fullest potential
  • Each individual is unique and deserves respect
  • A safe, nurturing community is essential to academic excellence
  • Service to others is a responsibility of every educated person

We strive to make these values real to our whole community, and to continually find better ways to help them take root in your children. These are values that can guide them and support them, not just for the time they are with us, but throughout their adult lives as well.
