Valor also offers Discovery National experiences to Valor students who seek or are called to serve the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people nationally. In recent years, students traveled to Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Miami, Puerto Rico, Santa Barbara, South Dakota and Washington D.C. to engage in academic, language immersion, compassion, urban outreaches and community service projects throughout nation. Near or Far, our desire is for our students to develop and model Christ’s servant leadership, to experience spiritual, emotional academic, and relational growth, as students mature in Godly character and become life-long servers.
