Welcome!

For over two decades, the Reid family and friends have dedicated their lives to providing a superior public education to elementary students. In 1995, concerned about the public school system, they worked to create a challenging, respectful learning environment for their own children. Since then, thousands of children have benefited from the hard work and focused vision of these parents. We invite your family to participate in the vision with your students at Valley Academy or Painted Rock Academy.

standards-based, textbook-driven curriculum
supported by individual accountability and
high academic and behavioral standards.
