About Valiant

Valiant College Prep Crest Logo

We are the Valiant College Preparatory Warriors!


From humble beginnings in 2018 to a nationally recognized academic and athletic program today, the story of Valiant College Preparatory begins with the three founders that wanted to provide a different option to wrestlers: Eric Larkin, Mike Douglas, and Eric Pawlak.

Eric Larkin and Mike Douglas brought their passion for wrestling and the desire to compete for championships beyond the State of Arizona, and Eric Pawlak had the experience in education to help the school receive its accreditation and thrive in the challenging environment of starting a new school. The dream of starting an independent school that was not limited in scale, ambition, or purpose was realized when the first classroom was filled with students on day one.

Together, the leaders of this school have more than tripled enrollment and thrived through the pandemic. They have brought in the coaches, teachers, and staff required to continue growing as they look to the future; expanded campuses, affiliate partners, and world championships!
