“Presenting Positive Standards for the Future of Education”
For more than 30 years, the mission of the Green Valley Academy professional staff and board members has been to offer a quality academic program to children in need of low-enrolled classes.
We encourage students who struggle with issues related to anxiety or school-avoidance to reconnect with school in a positive way and forge ahead to a successful adulthood through the power of a great education.
Why Choose GVA?
GVA has been changing the lives of children since we opened our doors in 1987. Being operational for 25 years, we believe that we have all but perfected the services that we offer. Countless numbers of parents as well as students, have told us how GVA has changed their lives for the better.
Large schools lack the capability to give every student the attention he or she needs to succeed. Classes in these schools are designed to move throughout the semester in a way that best fits the group at large. Not all students are the same, and those who have learning difficulties or disorders, require more attention to succeed.
We have a solid foundation with many schools in the area. These schools often contact us when they feel they may have a student who could benefit from our program.
Whether it be to return to their original school with increased academic confidence, gain acceptance to college, or graduate highschool, GVA can help every student reach their goals.
