We would like to introduce you to Verde Valley School‘s 70th Anniversary logo!

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, discuss the power of your time at VVS and help keep our school going strong for current and future students.

The Building Benches fundraising campaign provides a way for VVS alumni to directly support the school’s ongoing and long-term infrastructure building and maintenance needs. In return, a bench with a commemorative plaque, is built on campus in honor of the donor which could be an individual, a class group, or a graduation decade group.
The school’s infrastructure needs are many ranging from a new dorm roof to a long term vision for the unused land, but the work ethic to get things done here at VVS is strong, and your dollars will go a long way! Please support your school with a donation, then come to campus, sit for spell on your bench, and reflect on this place and our shared experience. It is really quite extraordinary!
