About the Provider

Description: The purpose of the school, its philosophy, procedures, and the various details of getting a school started began in earnest and policies were formulated. Registration of students and employment of teachers began in 1980, with the result of nine student applications being received by March. The first school session opened August 25, 1980, utilizing the facilities of Verde Baptist Church. The building of a second floor to the educational plant of the church began the latter part of March in order to house the educational facilities of Verde Valley Christian School. The aim of the school is to provide a Bible-based, Christ-centered education that will enrich the student in all aspects of life. Verde Valley Christian School is a non-denominational school sponsored by the Verde Baptist Church to provide a quality Christian education to the children of the Verde Valley. The Board of Directors includes members from Verde Baptist Church and other Bible believing churches in the area.
