College Scholarships & Awards
Our students earn awards at Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI)-sponsored events throughout their time at AVC. Our graduating classes of between 20-30 students are generally awarded up to $1,000,000 in scholarships each year. Several of our graduates have received the highly competitive Harbison Scholarship Trust award that pays for all tuition, books and fees for 4 years to the college of their choice. And nearly all AVC graduates who apply to the Torrey Honors Institute of Biola University are accepted.
What do our Alumni have to say?
I truly believe there are few schools that provide the kind of education that students receive at AVC. As a student at AVC my classes, teachers, and classmates challenged me to become a whole person who thinks deeply, loves faithfully, and prays diligently. Not only was I prepared academically for college and grad school, but I was also equipped for leadership opportunities and ministry. I’m still being transformed by the truth I first learned at AVC as I am committed to seeking excellence in my marriage, parenting, and career. I credit my time at AVC, both as a student and teacher, for showing me that quality education is much more than just knowledge, good grades, or standardized tests. True education, like at AVC, transforms students minds, hearts, and souls to make a significant impact on the world as a Christian leader. Kirstin Vlodica, 2002
Many schools lack the courage to teach the truth openly. Apple Valley Christian School has centered itself on truth and honesty, so that students may be confident and equipped to excel in all areas of life. This authenticity allows AVCS to operate as a family, with mutual trust between staff and students, opportunities to put head knowledge into action, and an open compassion for the children and families of the surrounding community. AVCS raised me to be a student of integrity and a person of love. Without the work of AVCS and all members involved, many students would receive a lackluster education, but under this Christian school students are shaped and encouraged to pursue truth and live accordingly.

AVCS is not like most schools. Most schools focus solely on facts; AVCS gives students a logical framework for piecing them together. Most schools require teachers to use politically correct language to further the government’s agendas; AVCS encourages teachers and students to honestly interpret the world, following the evidence wherever it leads. Most schools provide safe but sterile learning environments; AVCS cultivates real growth, even when things get messy. Our next generation needs educational institutions focused on truth, virtue, and God, and AVCS offers just that. Welcome to Apple Valley Christian School.
