Intercultural Service

Valor Discovery exists to facilitate opportunities for transformation through service — whether close to home or throughout the world. Our desire is that students would develop and strengthen their faith as they engage with various belief systems and cultural practices.

Our objective is to facilitate thoughtful intercultural experiences with the potential to significantly advance students’ spiritual, emotional, character and relational development, while serving the needs of the poor and marginalized around the globe.

Practicum

Practicum Week every year in March has become a much-anticipated opportunity for fun and in-depth study. Faculty and staff lead students in meaningful experiences both for academic advancement and the pursuit of hobbies and passions. Courses range from AP intensive study sessions for final exams to backpacking through a national park.

In recent years, our students have enjoyed learning about costume design, Latin dance, golf, rock climbing, interior design, service projects, SCUBA certification, professions in healthcare, and the study of law.

Student Leadership Board

The Valor Student Leadership Board goes beyond typical student council models to provide students with meaningful opportunities for leadership mentoring and experience.

The program pairs student leaders with faculty and staff in their area of expertise — from admissions and enrollment marketing to business operations, curriculum development, sports marketing and more. All participants are encouraged throughout the program to develop in five core areas: character, courage, influence, discipline and service.

Valor Sports Network

The Valor Sports Network gives students the opportunity to experience live broadcasting. Working with professional-grade equipment like the NewTek Tricaster production system, students run broadcasts of Varsity events that reach hundreds of viewers each night across the globe.

The skills learned in the Valor Sports Network prepare students for the next level of multimedia journalism and give them the advantage of practical, real-world experience as they move forward in the industry.
