Academic excellence at FVL
ACT scores at FVL are consistently among the highest in the Fox River Valley. Ninety percent of our students go on to higher education. In 2013-14, members of our graduating class of seniors were offered over $4 million in scholarships, grants, and aid for post-secondary education. Students of all ability levels find success at FVL. Our Guided Studies and At-Risk programs make sure that no students "fall between the cracks." Courses in all academic disciplines are offered for college credit. Click here for more information.
What if my student doesn't know anyone at FVL?
Students attend FVL come across the Fox River Valley and around the world. Our safe, nurturing environment affords all students a chance to make many new friends. While some enroll along with their best buddies, we find that many enjoy the opportunity to create a new circle of friends. The wide array of cocurricular offerings provides our students a way to be involved and meet new people with common goals and interests. From athletics to music and art, from a math team to robotics to marionettes, check out the opportunities.
Tuition & Finances
Current tuition rates can be found here. Tuition rates are set annually by the school's General Board at its February meeting. Tuition rates for students from our federation of 42 supporting churches receive their education at a lower rate because of the $2800 per student support provided by those congregations. Many families take advantage of our SCRIP and United Community programs to lower tuition costs for their students. As of the fall of 2014, FVL has been participating in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program. This program may provide home school families who meet the income standards to have their child attend FVL and have their tuition costs entirely covered.
Application information for this program will be available this spring. We will publish that info as soon as we receive notification.
Can students of other faiths attend FVL?
Each year students from a variety of faiths here in the Fox River Valley and from across the world attend FVL. We meet personally with each family to be sure that FVL will be able to serve the educational and spiritual needs of these students.
Do students of other faiths need to take religion classes at FVL?
As a Christian school, the teachings of the Bible are integral to the education offered to every student. All students enrolled at FVL are expected to actively participate in religion classes and our daily chapel activities. For more info about this aspect of FVL, click here.
