Letter from the President


Happy New Year and welcome back to school! I hope Christmas brought a spirit of peace and joy to your family, and much needed down time before returning to school with renewed energy.  

As the calendar turns to 2023, our vision naturally focuses on what lies ahead. Most important is the return to the classroom, where students are exploring new ideas and concepts with renewed enthusiasm. It is hard to believe, but final exams and the end of the first semester are just two weeks away.  

January is also the time to look ahead to next school year. School administrators are preparing budget forecasts for 2023-24. Financial aid applications are due by January 13, and reenrollment for current families will begin mid-February. Please know that we are working hard to balance Valley Catholic’s desire to keep tuition rates affordable for families while making sure teacher and staff salaries are commensurate with current economic conditions. We will have more tuition and enrollment information to share in the coming weeks.

Again, welcome back to school. We wish everyone a healthy and prosperous New Year.
