Valor Collegiate Academies is a high-performing charter school network with a mission to empower our diverse community to live inspired and purposeful lives. Our scholars will graduate with academic skills, social-emotional skills, and positive character strengths that rival the outcomes of the best schools in the world.

At Valor, we believe that we can have the greatest impact on our community by committing to 4 key organizational anchors: 

  • Top 1% Academics: We are passionate about meeting every scholar where they are – whether that is behind or above grade level – and supporting them to grow and excel. We define Top 1% Academics to mean that we are in the Top 5% in the State of TN for both Achievement and Growth. In 2017-2018, our middle schools scored 5/5 on TVAAS growth data in all grade levels and content areas, with our growth performance placing Valor in the top 1% of all Tennessee middle schools. 

  • Powered by Compass:  We believe that in order to live inspired and purposeful lives we must focus on comprehensive human development. The Valor Compass, our nationally recognized comprehensive human development program, is designed to help scholars develop their Sharp Minds as they strengthen their Big Hearts. 

  • Thrive in a Diverse World: Valor was founded upon the belief that having a truly diverse community of families and learners in a thoughtfully designed model allows for everyone to have a higher quality and more meaningful experience. Our scholars and staff members come from various walks of life, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and home lives from within Davidson County.

  • Built to Last: We believe that being built to last means having strong, long-term operational infrastructure. This is largely driven in part by having talented people and keeping that talent at Valor. We believe in making the work we do sustainable, by providing our faculty high-quality coaching, development, and support.
