A letter from Valley Catholic High School Principal Dr. Sara Bruins

Dear VCHS Families,

The start of the school year is exciting but also filled with adjustments. There are new classes, new teachers, new students, and for some, an entirely new campus to navigate. Every big change requires an adjustment period but once those initial apprehensive feelings subside, it is my favorite time of year, watching students, staff, and families come together for another fantastic school year. 

In preparing for the return of our students, the high school has been focusing on enhancing our community’s sense of belonging. Belonging is a human need that everyone deserves, especially in a school community. Our ultimate goal is for our students to feel valued through connections with others while being able to be their authentic selves. Building relationships is the backbone to fostering belonging and as parents, alumni, and friends of Valley Catholic High School. We extend this invitation to you.

Our school is your school and we challenge you to become involved and present in the daily life of the community. Attend a school play, join us for all school Mass, catch a football game, volunteer in the cafeteria, or work a shift in the concession stand. Regardless of the activity, our students will see you and know that you are a valued supporter of Valley Catholic High School.

Here’s to another great year and we look forward to seeing you on campus!


Dr. Sara Bruins

Valley Catholic High School Principal
