Update: 9/20 at 3:45 PM
Thank you for your overwhelming generosity! Over $88,000 has been raised, which in addition to the matching gift, puts our current Giving Day total over $160,000!
Gifts are continuing to come in, all of which will be put toward paying down the mortgage. Your gifts make a direct impact on the lives of our students, faculty, staff, and families. We thank God for you!
This once-a-year event supports FVL's Christian education ministry by helping the FVL Federation meet its annual Let the Children Come mortgage payment. Each year, the FVL Federation needs to pay $475,000 to retire its mortgage by 2038.
FVL opened its doors to over 740 students in the fall of 2022. What a wonderful blessing from God to be able to serve so many teens!

What do you like most about FVL?
Liam H (Junior)
. . . the awesome teachers that we get to learn from and the great sports programs that we get to be a part of.
Stella T (Senior)
. . . the relationships that the teachers have with the students. You can really tell that in every classroom the teachers really care about you and about your success and they just really want you to do your best in everything you do inside of high school and outside of high school.
Mia S. (Senior)
. . . the bonds and relationships that you build with your classmates over the years and that’s one of the blessings of having a small class is that you get to know each other and then by the time you are a senior you are best friends.
Who is your favorite FVL teacher?
Matteah G (Senior)
I'd probably say Mrs. Gilmet because she has been with me through all the hard times, especially through freshman, sophomore, and junior year. She helps me and continues to push me to work my hardest and to strive in all the things I do.
Eli R (Senior)
My favorite teacher is Mr. G. He's my favorite teacher because he has a great personality, he's fun to interact with, and I love being in his classroom when he teaches. He's a teacher, but he's also a friend.
Emma G. (Senior)
It's hard for me to pick a favorite teacher because they all influence me in many different ways and showed me God's love.
In August of 2018, the building addition opened its doors to expanded learning opportunities and over 650 students.
