The Valor Story
The vision for Valor was sparked in our founder, Marci Hartsock, as she learned about University Model Schools™ from her family in Oklahoma. She was intrigued by the classical education her nieces and nephews were receiving and how they were stirred to a fresh love for learning. In her interest to discover more, she visited other private christian schools and was inspired by the spiritual climate she observed among many of them. She and her husband, Blake, spent many months praying over the idea of starting a school in Waco. Marci eventually initiated with other like minded families and friends to see who would be interested in joining her on the journey of bringing a University Model School™ to Waco that not only offered an excellent education but also raised children up to be disciples and followers of Jesus that impacted the culture around them.
