Tualatin Valley Academy moved to its present location in the 1940’s. At that time, the school was set in a very rural area surrounded by farms. Situated between the small towns of Beaverton and Hillsboro, the location was meant to serve the surrounding area and churches with a quiet location close to nature.
Seventy years of growth have completely changed our neighborhood and now we are in a very urban environment. Hillsboro has grown until the city limits of Beaverton and Hillsboro meet east of us and we are now actually in Hillsboro.
Recently, we received notification that our address is being changed. We no longer will have a building number that is sequenced from downtown Portland. Also the street name will change from Baseline Rd. to Main St. Some of you will know that Baseline runs directly into Main St where it crosses Cornell Rd. in Hillsboro.
As of February 15, 2017 are new address is:
7405 E. Main St., Hillsboro, OR 97123
I have already had one person, who having heard of our new address, asked me if the school had moved! No, we are not moving but it will be a mental shift to get used to our new address. We have until February 15, 2018 to complete the change. The Post Office will deliver mail to us with either address until that date. We will begin changing our stationary and other uses of our address with the goal of having the changeover complete by July 1 of this year.
We have been crowded a little by the urban growth around us. However, we still have our wetland to the north of us with our bird blind and creek. We are thankful for the physical plant we have and will continue in our current location for the foreseeable future.
Thank you for your understanding of this change. If you have any questions please contact me at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
