Online schooling can be daunting. Luckily, this is not just any online school environment.

Transitioning from a traditional to an online learning environment like what we offer here at Valenture can come with its hiccups. No matter the student. 

That's why our mentor system is such a crucial part of what we offer as a school.

We truly focus on seeing that our students develop both their academic and social skills. We encourage them to express themselves in class, to show their personalities and to share their opinions with their peers in a space that is safe and accepting.

Every student has access to a student success mentor who guides them along their journey with us - from start to finish. Students are thus continuously supported and able to connect on a weekly basis with a mentor during a group call. Here they can discuss any academic-related or other problems they're facing at that point in time. They are also able to chat privately with their mentors when they need guidance.

It's more than just an online school, it's a place of personal development where students are prepared to face the real-world and all its challenges head-on.
