Shadow Day

Come Spend a Day at Valor

8th Graders and Transfer Students:

One of the most effective ways for prospective students to experience Valor is to visit during the school day. Last year, Valor hosted more than 450, eighth grade and transfer students through our Ambassador Program. Each visitor is welcomed by a Valor student-ambassador and attends classes, interacts with teachers and is able to experience Valor culture for a day. A lunch voucher is given to each visitor.
