HIGH ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND EXPECTATIONS
Standards and expectations are high; after all we want our children to be the best! Commitment to academic excellence, responsible leadership and moral integrity within a supportive and nurturing environment provide an education experience that is rewarding for all those involved.
AN ATMOSPHERE THAT BALANCES ORDER AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM.
As a happy, tolerant and vibrant community we are proud of our distinguished past and look forward to an exciting future filled with success in many different activities. In this section we attempt to touch on the depth and the diversity of opportunity available to students in their work atÂ Valencia, their extra-curricular activities and their time in the house. We support initiative, encourage the taking of responsibility and seek to foster an atmosphere, which balances order and individual freedom.
ADEQUATE STUDENT GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT
In aiming for a fulfilling yet a balanced life, every student at Valencia College is helped by a few people- their Housemistress/master, the student affairs coordinators and their class Tutor. At each stage in their education, a housemistress, student affairs coordinators, and class tutors will get to know him/her extremely well and will be a source of guidance and support through their teenage years. In addition, there are members of staffs and who specialize in certain areas, (e.g. Higher Education, Careers and Counselling) and who are always on hand to give advice.
Counselling activities in the school include individual and group guidance in educational, vocational and socio-personal matters.
Under performing children, gifted, talented and disadvantaged students are invited for interviews and guidance. Students with examination related problems are also helped. Sometimes parent’s attentions are needed and they are equally guided.
SPECIAL ONE-ON-ONE TUTORIALS
One-on-one 1 hour tutorials are also conducted daily to help students solve problems.
