Excellence in education is the ultimate goal of everyone at Spring Valley Academy, and our staff members work hard to deliver year after year. Great teachers, timely topics, and embracing technology in the classroom come together to create excellence for our students.

But we include another very important component to our educational curriculum: the teachings of Christ to influence a person’s character, kindness, and compassion. While our academics engage the mind, Christ’s teachings engage the soul. We feel this valuable combination of intelligence and integrity makes for a more well-rounded student.
