Show Notes

We know that education took a hit over the last 18 months, and a lot of parents are worried that their kiddos lost ground. Others have concerns about whether the current system is truly preparing students for the future.

Doug and Thea Wood shared those concerns long before the pandemic hit. But rather than just talk about the problem, they took action to build a solution.

The Woods partnered with Angie Taylor to found Valor Global Online, a Christ-centered school with a flexible, entrepreneurial approach to learning. The Valor team is dedicated to cultivating creativity and confidence in the kids who attend and creating a community that prepares them to pursue their dreams.

On this episode of The Live Out Loud Show, Thea, Doug and Angie join Brooke to explain why the current education system doesn’t prepare kids for the real world and how Valor Global solves that problem by finding and fostering the divine potential in each student.

They discuss what the school day looks like for kids at Valor Global, describing how they engage in the online classroom and why the format gives families the flexibility to build their lives around what’s most important to them.

Listen in for insight on how Valor Global incorporates faith into the curriculum and find out if the school and community Thea, Doug and Angie are building is the right fit for your family!
