Inspiring New Thinking

Valencia has long been renowned for outstanding opportunities for students at all levels of education. As the world has changed, educators have continued to update programs to keep them relevant to today’s challenges, and to prepare students for the future.


Vital to every industry, schools make sure their students are strong in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines, and Valencia schools have taken it a step further. Emblem Academy (link to page) has added to STEM to create ESTEEM – Ethics, Science, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Engineering and Mathematics – to provide their students with an understanding of business and conduct with challenging programs and modern technology to keep young minds engaged.


West Creek Academy adds to STEM to create STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. This program gives students exposure to the arts as a core part of their education, creating well-rounded, creative pupils.


Local schools were recently able to show off their work and be inspired by others at the first STEM Showcase, where local business leaders could see how students from kindergarten to college are preparing to join them in the workforce.


Valencia continues to shine in education and create amazing opportunities for its youngest residents.
