Valor Scholars Program


The Valor Scholars Program seeks to attract students who are not only the best and brightest, but those who demonstrate Christ-centered character. A Valor Scholar exemplifies three essential traits: curiosity, courage, and compassion. Valor Scholars are curious, exercising an open mind and diligent intellect to know God, both inside and outside the classroom. Valor Scholars are courageous, unapologetically Christ-centered in all they do. Valor Scholars are compassionate, with the capacity to care about what God cares about.

If you’re a high-achieving high school senior, your hard work and dedication to academic excellence could give you the opportunity to receive up to a $32,000 scholarship that is renewable up to 4 years.*
