Verde Valley School Alumni
Our alumni share a forever bond. You know how hard it is to get red dirt out of your socks, you appreciate the reverence found in a rock called Cathedral, and you know that running down a mountain in the dark while wielding a torch is a perfectly normal thing to do.
Many of you wear a turquoise and silver ring to show the world that you belong to something bigger, a small group of committed individuals who share time spent in this valley surrounded by red rocks. A field trip journal full of memories, a well worn pair of riding boots and authentic personal connections are among the most prized possessions with which you graduate.
Use this page to connect with fellow alumni, explore the power of your time at VVS, and help keep our school going strong for current and future students.
