Valiant Cross Academy announces they have been gifted the Dexter Avenue Methodist Church. The property is at 301 Dexter Avenue, directly across from the Alabama Supreme Court Building. The building was built in 1887 and has served as a church home for many generations in Montgomery, Alabama. This same building will be the permanent middle school campus for the sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade scholars of Valiant Cross Academy.
“When we first moved into this amazing space, never in our wildest dreams did we think we would ever own this building. I am honored and humbled to have a school on the Civil Rights Trail, neighboring Dexter Avenue Memorial Baptist, and on the same street where Rosa Parks leaped into history by boarding the bus. God has been extremely faithful to us.” Said Anthony Brock, Head of School Valiant Cross Academy.
Plans are currently in the works to transform the building into a fully functioning urban school while maintaining its historic beauty. The school administrators plan to incorporate every inch of the building into a space where children can learn and be inspired. While the building may be over 135 years old, Valiant Cross Academy will have the latest technology upgrades and be on par with other successful schools.
