Valiant Academy of Southern California - Valiant Prep

Who We Are

We are highly qualified and credentialed teachers who work with our elementary, middle and high school students to review lessons and assessments and to guide and support students and learning coaches through the program. Teachers, parents, and students meet on a regular basis in person and online to evaluate progress and provide additional enhancement learning opportunities.

Students in high school work closely with mentor teachers and subject-specific teachers. The role of the learning coach, in many cases a parent or guardian, changes to be an enthusiastic and supporter for your child’s academic success.
