Daily Life at Valiant Cross

At Valiant Cross Academy, we believe scholars learn through an intentional culture of structure, discipline, and love. We are committed to providing a well-rounded quality education for our scholars. We believe male mentors can have an influence on our scholars that can last for years to come.

At Valiant, we provide many experiences and fun activities for our scholars as well. We take many walking field trips around downtown Montgomery. We offer arts and music education too.

We also believe in order to achieve excellence, our scholars need to dress for success.

Dress Code

We believe that the way a person dresses reflects the way they think and feel about themselves. At Valiant Cross Academy, our scholar’s appearance communicates many things about our school to the community and establishes our reputation as an outstanding school with excellent scholars. All students must wholeheartedly support the dress code.

Member Selection Procedure

The National Honor Society chapter of Valiant Cross Academy High School is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those scholars who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Scholars are selected for membership by majority vote of a five-member principal-appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified scholars on behalf of the faculty of our school.

Scholars in grades 10 & 11 are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a scholar must have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or better on a 4.0 scale. Each fall those scholars who meet this criterion are invited to complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.

To evaluate a candidate’s character, the faculty council uses three forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, members of the faculty are solicited for input regarding professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership. Third, candidate information forms are reviewed and verified.

Any solicited faculty input and all Candidate Forms are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection. Candidates are notified regarding selection or non-selection according to a predetermined schedule.

Following notification, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly selected members. Once inducted, new members are required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all four criteria that led to their selection.
