Our goal is to unite passion with purpose as students uncover learning to

solve relevant and meaningful challenges.


At VALE (Venture Academy of Leadership and Entrepreneurship), we believe in redefining alternative education to equip students with the necessary skills and tools to succeed in a rapidly evolving world. Rather than focusing on at-risk students, we redefine the term to include all students who are at risk of being unprepared for their post-secondary path and, therefore, not world-ready! Our innovative approach to education is centered on unleashing the potential of every student by providing a non-traditional educational approach, meaningful learning experiences, and problem-based learning opportunities that transcend traditional content areas. Our goal is to prepare students to become entrepreneurial change-makers, well-equipped for any post-secondary pathway they choose.

Nihil de nobis, sine nobis.

Nothing about us, without us.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
