At 826 Valencia, all of our students are authors. 826 programs always end with a finished product, such as a book, newspaper, magazine, or podcast.
Through this project-based model, we see great leaps in our young authors’ confidence, pride, and connection to the writing process. And because these publications are distributed in our stores and in bookstores nationwide, their words inspire readers all over the world, building empathy and understanding across differences. We’re super proud of all of our publications! Check out these most recent publications by our students, and browse our store and student writing gallery for more!
