Valor Prep partners with EMCC, West-MEC for higher education

Posted

Valor Preparatory Academy of Arizona, a tuition-free hybrid school for grades 6-11, has partnered with its neighbors at Estrella Mountain Community College to allow students to take college courses free of charge while attending Valor Prep.

The opportunity for Valor Prep students to take free college classes at EMCC will be available in the 2021-22 school year and will help students work toward a college degree, according to a release.

In addition to free college classes, the school at 13185 W. Thomas Road in Goodyear also announced its students will be able to take career training courses at the West-MEC campuses.

Families who are interested in switching their children to Valor Prep for fall 2021 can enroll now on the school’s website, ValorAZ.org/Enroll.

One of the many advantages of Valor Prep’s hybrid learning model is how many options it affords its students, the release stated.

As such, Valor Prep has always aimed to empower its students and families to make choices that are right for them. The newly established partnership with EMCC allows the hybrid school to take that mission a step further and provide students with even more opportunities that are not always found in traditional schools.

Students will be able to get the college experience as they take courses at the EMCC campus, 3000 N. Dysart Road, across the street from Valor Prep’s state-of-the-art facility. 

As a school that focuses on preparing students not only for college but also career, Valor Prep is also extending opportunities to students who are interested in going directly into a skilled workforce, the release stated.

Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, students will also have the chance to take career training courses at West-MEC campuses. West-MEC’s mission is to prepare students to enter the workforce with skills that will accelerate their career potential.
