Why FVL?

Spiritual Life

Growing spiritually is at the heart of FVL's mission to its students. Each student is enrolled in a curriculum of religious classes.  More than that, as a Christian high school, FVL strives to teach all subjects in the light of God's inerrant word.

Daily chapel services are offered Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, students participate in a time of personal Bible reading. Prayers both open and close the school day.

The Christian atmosphere of the school is evident in the hallways and classrooms where Christian artwork, Bible passages, and handcrafted crosses are displayed.

Each year a Scriptural theme is chosen and emphasized throughout the school year. Students are encouraged to share their faith and put it into action by developing their talents in leadership and volunteer service. 


The campus is beautiful, teachers are caring, and I really appreciate the faithful Christian message they share. Some of their students go to my church and I can really see how they love this High School.
