BEAVERTON — With rising enrollment across its campus, Valley Catholic enters the new academic year as back-to-back winner of the Oregonian Cup for excellence in academics, activities and athletics among 3A schools.

Bob Weber, president of Valley Catholic, said that acknowledgement “sets the tone for the new academic year and allows us to build on those accomplishments.” Valley Catholic School is Oregon’s only pre-K through 12th grade educational system. Ninety-eight percent of Valley Catholic’s graduates attend college immediately after high school.

Weber says that “community service is integral to Valley Catholic’s curriculum and student experience.” High school teacher Erin Cole and senior Erin Cochran are entering the school year as winners of 2013 Service to Beaverton Awards, presented by the City of Beaverton and the Beaverton Chamber of Commerce. Cole is an environmental science teacher and advisor for the Serving Our Community Club.

Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle called Cole “a passionate advocate for developing young minds in our schools. She has shown them the value of being connected with the community. And isn’t that what a teacher is supposed to do?”

Weber said Valley Catholic’s award-winning arts program “will continue to build on its success.” Student artist Yurong Peng and musician David Rogers were winners of 2013 Outstanding Achievement Awards presented by the Beaverton Arts Commission. Student Phi Lam earned first place in the Oregon Music Teachers Association Classic Piano Festival. In 2013-'14, Valley Catholic’s drama department will present Shakespeare's comedy, "As You Like It," and the classic musical, "The Music Man."

Valley Catholic Middle School hosts regional science and speech tournaments.
Valley Catholic athletes and coaches will defend individual and state championships this year. In 2013, the Valiants won their first girls basketball state championship under coach of the year John Innes. The Charisma Dance Team won their fourth consecutive state championship under coach of the year Jessica Anderson and co-coach Megan Hoffman. The Valiants also earned state championships in track and field.

For the first time, Valiant athletes are competing in nighttime competition at home under newly-installed field lights.

“It’s exciting to be entering the new school year on such a bright note," Weber says. "Literally.”
