Valor Christian High School is an independent, non-denominational school of 1220 students located in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. We stand firmly behind our vision to "prepare tomorrow's leaders to transform the world for Christ" while maintaining the high standard of pursuing excellence in all. Valor offers a Christ-centered culture where students are known and loved, challenged in their learning, and inspired in their passions. Every student is intentionally embraced for their unique abilities, and motivated to be an effective learner and critical thinker.

Valor graduates are dedicated learners, charismatic artists, competitive athletes, and service-oriented leaders who give of their time locally and globally. Valor's academic program offers 21 Advanced Placement (AP) courses along with 14 dual credit courses and 11 honors courses. In 2020, Valor had a school-wide AP pass rate of 84% and an average ACT of 26.

We are committed, in everything we do, to make decisions that first and foremost, honor Jesus Christ and are in the best interest of our students. During the challenges of COVID, we were able to offer both in-person and remote learning opportunities while delivering a strong relationship focused educational experience.

Valor is jointly accredited through Cognia and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and is a charter member of the Council on Educational Standards and Accountability. In February, 2015, Valor received Exemplary Accreditation through ACSI - the first school in the country to receive this status.
