I wanted her to travel with me for work, says Fagmeedah. A Valenture mom who, pre COVID, used to travel regularly for work.

"I wanted her to travel with me for work," says Fagmeedah. A Valenture mom who, pre-COVID, used to travel regularly for work.

Finding the time to spend mother-and-daughter quality time together can be difficult in a world where 'busyness' is an ever-increasing state of being. However, for her and her daughter, Zareena, who is a student at Valenture, being together was always at the very top of their priority list.

Our school's online learning environment gives them the flexibility to go anywhere, at any time, while studies can continue as normal. This allows them to work and study side by side and to grow together as a family. 

Like Fagmeedah, many other parents consider Valenture as it offers almost-endless possibilities which speak to the specific needs of families, often unmet by traditional schools.

The world is, undoubtedly, moving into the realm of a remote-first working culture - and parents want their kids along for this ride.

In the middle of a move? Unsure where your family will be in a few months time? Want to up-and-go whenever the mood strikes?

Valenture truly allows parents to be part of their teenager's daily lives without having to be responsible for their schooling. In turn, students become more disciplined as they take responsibly for setting their pace of study, which affords them great flexibility in the overall time required to progress from Junior High to International A-Levels.

This way, a balance between work/study and life is established, leaving more time to connect as a family.
