Valley School

“The Wednesday Drive”


Having the drive to persevere, to stoke your curiosity, to embrace life, learning,

and service; and to build relationships through time spent together.


Throughout the year, there will be scheduled dates on Wednesdays to spend time for what we value:

Building relationships

Exploring the Outdoor Classroom

Learning in the Community Classroom

Giving back:  Service to the Community

Engaging in healthy, fun activities

Extra time and support for Valley academic classes


Valley School is always open on Wednesdays

Students are encouraged to come to school to work on their academics

during their regularly scheduled time if they are not participating in an activity.

Students are not to be on their home campus during their Wednesday Valley time.
