"It's for you." Valenture, for kids who don't want to wait until the future to live their best lives.
One of our International GCSE students students, Matt, has been meeting with our marketing department every few weeks. We discuss and debate ideas, brainstorm and look at the best ways in which we can implement new digital marketing trends and up social media engagement on all our platforms.
He never ceases to amaze us with his almost-unlimited enthusiasm. His concepts are always emotive, maverick and bold.
"You're different, so what?" he says in our last meeting. "Valenture allows students to live our lives, now."
Here, you can grow your facial hair, wear whatever you want, and you can make your day yours. You don't have to conform to narrow ideas of what a high school student should be or how one is supposed to 'fit in'.
There is no need to wait until one day for your life to really start. One day when you're done with high school. You are given the flexibility as a student to be a golf player, a computer programmer, or a soccer star. "We churn out so many assignments as students, yet look at all these side projects I'm able to do for fun in my free time," says Matt.
Matt has done consulting work for many small business in his area, helping them with digital marketing strategies.
At Valenture, inclusivity is one of our core values as a school. We acknowledge and celebrate differences, and respectfully engage in the challenges our differences present. We encourage individuality while seeking common purpose and meaning at all times. We encourage students to be themselves.
Students have the freedom to actively pursue their dreams and aspirations on a daily basis, which ultimately aid them in their holistic development.
The future is now, and it's for you.
