So, come spend a day with us and see what it’s like to walk in our shoes. We think once you do, you won’t want to take them off!
Building a foundation that equips students to successfully meet the challenges of middle school and high school.
At the start of each new school year, CVCA’s incoming 7th Grade class leaves together for a 3-day adventure at a Christian camp.
The students will leave one day prior to the official first day of school at CVCA at 7:30AM to travel to Seneca Hills Bible Conference Center in Polk, PA. They will return that Wednesday at 4:00PM.
Students have the opportunity to meet new friends and new teachers during these action-packed days. Adventures include kayaking, indoor rock climbing, zip lining, swimming (pool), enjoying an indoor rec-center, hiking, crafting, and many other outdoor adventures and fun.
In the evening, the students are challenged to grow closer to the Lord and to one another during evening chapels and campfire times that will include great music, skits, and messages.
The cost this year is only $100.

Tips for successful test takers:
CVCA has a Financial Aid Program to assist families who otherwise might not be able to afford their tuition payments. In 2015-16, we awarded over $1.3 Million in financial assistance to our students. Financial aid is awarded based on a needs-based evaluation of each applicant’s family financial situation. The maximum award can be up to 58% of tuition. FACTS will process all applications and evaluate a family’s ability to pay tuition. All financial aid application information is held in strict confidence. Financial Aid will not be awarded to students who have not registered for that school year.
CVCA’s mission is Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ. A large part of accomplishing that mission is achieved through assisting families with the financial costs through both need-based and merit-based financial aid. From 2015-2016, over $1.3 Million in financial assistance was awarded to our students.

For over 20 years we have been bringing students to CVCA from our sister schools around the world: Danielsen Christian School in Bergen, Norway; EIPG: International School Preparing Generations in Atibaia, Brazil; and Doulos Discovery School in Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic. In most cases students from these schools are juniors who come to CVCA for one year of study.
For the last 10 years we have also had a steady influx of students from around the world who come to CVCA during 9 or 10 grade who stay through graduation. Many matriculate to American colleges and universities.
All of our international students are hosted by CVCA and local-Christian families, and they are fully integrated into the CVCA community. We offer a limited number of international students admission each year, giving first priority to our sister schools. A few additional enrollment positions may be considered on an individual basis. International students wishing to apply to CVCA should contact Mrs. Mindy Fullerton at firstname.lastname@example.org; be prepared to provide the following information:
International students are charged fees in addition to tuition. CVCA does not provide financial assistance for international students.
Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy enrolls 800 university-bound students in grades 7-12. The school’s mission is achieved through an advanced curriculum (including 15 AP courses), student ministries, 16 performing arts groups, 25 varsity sports, 23 student organizations, and a dynamic student body.
Curricular enhancements include J-term, four Schools of Distinction (Medical Sciences, Engineering, Business, and Vocational Ministry), weekly Connection Groups, and a new 36,000 square foot building expansion.
The school is within 30 minutes of nearby Cleveland, with access to all the resources the city offers. Local universities provide college courses for high school students, both on campus and online. And CVCA is located on a beautiful 70-acre campus bordering a national park.
Every year we have the opportunity to bring students from a variety of countries to CVCA to live and study for a year or more. To make this a unique experience for these students. we would like you to consider hosting a student for the upcoming year. Below you will find some of the questions that are often asked about the program.
The ISP gives qualified international students the opportunity to study at CVCA and exposes local students to other cultures and perspectives. Overall, the program’s goals are to promote cross-cultural learning and a global Kingdom school culture that encourages students to look beyond themselves to what God is doing around the world. The school recruits, screens, trains, and cares for international students who attend the school. These international students live with Christian host families for the academic year. Mrs. Ellen Rasper, International Student Coordinator, gives the students and their host families supervision and support throughout the school year. She is available to answer questions and help resolve difficulties. Mrs. Rasper can be reached at email@example.com.
Contact Ellen Rasper, ISP Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Host families provide a “home away from home” for international students. You provide supervision and support as well as housing, meals, and transportation. International students and their parents are expected to cover school tuition and fees (including a home-stay fee) and personal expenses such as money for recreational activities and trips. All host parents must be Christian believers and be committed to setting a godly example and investing in the spiritual development of the international student placed in their home.
Yes. Host families receive a home-stay stipend to cover many of the expenses associated with hosting a student. Mrs. Rasper can explain how payment is handled. Often, host families may choose to incur expenses that are not completely covered by the home-stay stipend, so families should be prepared for this possibility.
Once you have been initially screened as a host family, Mrs. Rasper will give you some information about the students that are enrolled for the upcoming school year. She will recommend students that appear to be a good fit with your family, and you can share your preferences. You will always have the option to decline hosting if there are no students you would like to host.
Yes. Your student will have enough English ability to have been accepted to the school. Students’ language ability will vary, but all students should be conversational in English—meaning that they can get by in most conversational settings—but they will not necessarily be fluent. Students will have studied English in school but may not have ever been immersed in the language. Therefore, host families will need to be patient and to give students helpful advice and informal instruction.
Your student will arrive 2 to 3 days before the first day of school or orientation and depart within 5 days of the last day of school. Once you have been matched with a specific student, Mrs. Rasper will let you know that student’s arrival date.
The ISP will supply each host family with a host family handbook to help you prepare for your student’s arrival. It will address issues that may arise during the program, and it will give you some practical tips for the whole journey from beginning to end. Mrs. Rasper will also give you specific information about your student, and he will be available throughout the school year to answer questions and help you work through any difficulties that might arise. In addition, Mr Steve Kasiguran provides academic guidance to you and your international student.

The total cost of a year of tuition at CVCA is $10,250. A student may combine multiple types of financial aid to help reduce this cost.
CVCA utilized the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan, which is an automatic cash transfer plan taking payment through checking and savings accounts, as well as credit cards. Contracts for new and returning families should be created during the enrollment process, and become active in June. Upon activation, a one-time financing fee of $65 will be deducted from your account. If financial aid or scholarships are awarded your contract will be adjusted to reflect those awards and you will receive a notice prior to your first payment. For families who select a payment plan (as opposed to paying in full) FACTS Payment plans include Peace of Mind Insurance.
If you choose to withdraw after July 1st, but prior to the first day of school, you will be responsible to pay one month of tuition (As part of our new school policy). For changes in enrollment status during the year, tuition is pro-rated on a quarterly basis. Those students entering or withdrawing from CVCA during a given quarter will be responsible to pay for the full quarter.
No. Your bank statement will show the amount withdrawn each month from your
account. The contract that you sign at the time of your interview or at re-registration
time will indicate your monthly payment and the date of withdraw. FACTS will send you an email confirmation of any changes to your contract.
You can open an account for your student’s tuition, deposit the amount of the tuition to
