LOVE MORE. EXPECT MORE. BE MORE
Valley Christian School was founded in 1975 as Youngstown Christian School by the Highway Tabernacle Assembly of God,
on the corner of Southern Boulevard and Wychwood Avenue in Youngstown, Ohio.
Through the years, our enrollment has increased to our current enrollment of 625 students. We joined the
Ohio High School Athletic Association in 2003 to provide our high school students with a competitive athletic experience.
In 2006, a new high school facility was built on the original property, which included a new gymnasium,
twelve classrooms, a chapel, and a café. Other notable additions to our organization are:
• Inception of Special Education Department in 2009.
• Dedication of our renovated cafeteria and three additional classroom spaces in 2014.
• Dual accreditation from both Association of Christian Schools International and AdvancEd by not only meeting the standards,
but exceeding them in many areas.
The school adopted the model of "Love More, Expect More, Be More,” which relates to nurturing the spirit, challenging the mind, and serving the world; three simple values that have guided the dramatic change process that Youngstown Christian School has undergone in the past five years. In 2015, Youngstown Christian was renamed Valley Christian to better represent all the communities our students live in throughout the Valley.
