Why Valence?


be a founder

Our founding team is a team of builders and leaders. We aren't picking up a script and executing it for the 100th time. We are writing it every day, building the school that families in Queens deserve, from a founding class of 112 5th graders to a full-size 450-scholar pillar of our neighborhood.


grow everyday

The best teachers are coached to improve their craft every day. We use continuous observation and feedback to turn good teachers into great teachers for our scholars.


make a difference

There's no way around it - the work of founding is long and grueling and also worth every 6am alarm and bead of sweat. The work you do each day at Valence College Prep has an immediate and lasting impact on our scholars, their families, and our community.
