The school is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon. Until 1991, it was an all-girls school and was named St. Mary of the Valley Academy (colloquially known as "St. Mary's"), but at the start of the 1991–1992 school year boys were admitted for the first time, and the school was renamed Valley Catholic School.
The school's athletic nickname is the Valiants. In fall 2014, the high school sports program moved from being a 3A program in the Oregon School Activities Association's West Valley League, to a 4A program in OSAA's Cowapa League.
