Academics At VLA

Valley Leadership Academy is a blended hybrid school offering personalized education and individualized curriculum. Our students enjoy customized learning plans tailored to their unique learning styles, abilities, and interests. At Valley Leadership Academy, we strive to balance academic rigor with development of love of learning. 

Curriculum

In our school, we believe there is no one-size-fits-all curriculum. We will work with families to determine the best curriculum for each student. All students will learn the same concepts, but in ways that best fit their own learning styles and interests. Students may provide their own curriculum, or choose to participate in our cohorts, which include literature, writing, spelling, math, history, and math. ​

Assessment

At VLA, we seek a holistic approach to education. We care most about helping our students find joy in learning and confidence in approaching challenges. Students will be motivated to achieve mastery of concepts and demonstrate that mastery in a variety of ways. Standardized testing is offered, but not required.
