FVL's Core Values
Why would FVL have four core values that fit so well with secular society? Could one accuse FVL of marketing values that have strayed from the original goal of this school when it was established nearly 70 years ago?
By God’s grace, nothing has changed. Taken out of context, four of these values may be shared with the secular world, but FVL’s number one core value remains. No matter what decade, no matter what generation, no matter what campus—FVL is Christ-centered. The Savior whose birth we will celebrate is the Savior who, by God’s grace, is woven through each of the other core values.
Because of God’s gift of a Christ-child, FVL delivers to students and parents the best news of all: we are part of the family of God.
When the holiday-induced warm and fuzzy feelings get packed away in January, God’s Word will continue to strengthen our relationship with him and the love we have for others.
When we once again kneel at that manger in Bethlehem and worship the very Son of God who humbled himself to serve us, then how can we not help but find joy in serving others?
Pursuit of Excellence?
FVL’s current campus offers facilities, opportunities, and course offerings that the class of 1957 couldn’t have imagined. Through all the changes, our “most excellent” offering remains the same: an education centered in a Savior who doesn’t just prepare students for life after high school, but for the day they will die, when they will kneel—not at a manger in Bethlehem, but before their Savior in heaven.
