Current Families & Students

Our School Family

Students, parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and friends are what forms the community of CVCA. Without you, we wouldn’t be who we are or able to do what we do. Whether you are cheering at the games, helping with homework or donating your resources, we want to thank you for being our family and making us who we are.

Appearance Standards

Philosophy

Student appearance should enhance the spiritual, social, and academic atmosphere at CVCA. We desire to do all things to the glory of our Lord (I Cor. 10:31). We endeavor to provide student appearance standards that are reasonable and reflect our three guiding principles of modesty, neatness, and unity. It is our intention that student apparel be easy for students to wear, easy for parents to purchase, and easy for CVCA to supervise.

The following standards were set as the combined effort of many people. The Student Appearance Committee interviewed students, parents, administrators, teachers, staff s, and professionals in other private schools and implemented many of their suggestions. Success with these standards will require the support of everyone in the CVCA community. It is our hope that our student appearance standards will assist us in fulfilling our mission: to educate and cultivate servants for Christ.

Parents, please note that our apparel has been prayerfully selected to eliminate distractions and promote learning. We understand that God has given parents the primary responsibility for the nurture and admonition of their children. The investment that you have made in teaching your children about appropriate dress will be reinforced at CVCA.

While we have taken care to set precise standards, no list of standards can cover every possibility. We realize that whenever appearance standards are implemented, there will be unforeseen circumstances. In light of this, the administration will make the final decision concerning student appearance compliance should specific issues arise.

Privileges Carry Responsibility: A Message to Students

Within the style guidelines listed on the following tables, you are permitted to purchase your uniform style slacks and shorts wherever you can find a proper fit and price range. Please be aware that we will only be able to extend this privilege to you as you prove to be responsible. Take great care in adhering to our style standards: we are maintaining a uniform look. When in doubt about a garment, bring it to the office with the price tags still attached, and keep your receipts. Be careful to choose a modest, loose-fitting, business-attire size in all garments.

Additionally, note that items that are not listed in our standards may not be worn, with the exception of a reasonable amount of business-attire jewelry. Scarves, sashes, bandannas, suspenders, suit jackets, outerwear, sunglasses, and hats are not permitted.

Student Appearance Standards (SAS)

Basic student apparel consists of a CVCA monogrammed polo and tan-khaki slacks, shorts, or skirts. Additionally, a plaid skirt in two styles is available for girls. Students are encouraged to tuck polos in but are permitted to wear them untucked if neatness is maintained. Polos, jackets, sweaters and vests must be purchased through Kids Kloset Uniforms. Turtlenecks and crew-neck T-shirts will be available through Kids Kloset Uniforms as well as dress shirts (for young men), but all may be purchased elsewhere.

Clothing items must conform to the style and color standards listed on the Student Appearance Standards chart.

Purchase Monogrammed Pieces & Skirts

All monogrammed pieces must be purchased from Kids Kloset Uniforms (PDF).

Skirts are available at Kids Kloset

Car Pools

Student Parking

Student Parking Pass Form (PDF)

1. Student drivers must be registered with a parking tag visible in their car prior to parking their vehicle on campus beginning with the first day of classes, August 16, 2016. Students must park in their assigned parking lot each school day. Violation of these expectations could result in having the car ticketed and/or booted which may cost up to $20 to have removed.

2. Steps in registering and obtaining a parking place/parking tag:

  • Pick up an information sheet and a registration card at the Welcome Center, or Main Office.
  • Submit or mail a copy of your driver’s license, car insurance card, and a completed registration form to the Main Office.

3. The parking registration form gives you an opportunity to designate your lot preference, i.e. north, south or east lot. The preferred locations will be assigned in the order in which the completed registration form and required copies (i.e. Drivers’ License and insurance company card) are turned into the office. Parking lot locations will be assigned in the order in which they are received according to class; Seniors first, followed by Juniors and Sophomores. (Preferences are not guaranteed.)

4. Assigned parking tags may be picked up in the main office during the month of August with the payment of the $60 parking fee. Please pick up your parking tag in the office before classes begin on August 16, 2016.

Student Clubs

CATS (Concerned About Teen Success)

Concerned About Teen Success (C.A.T.S.) is a multi-faceted youth development program. It prepares leaders to motivate and equip youth to reach for the future by making a difference today.

High school students are trained by adult leaders to confront issues facing their peers in a proactive, positive way.

By going to school classrooms with six or seven other C.A.T.S. members, you will confront often difficult topics that affect you and others. Your talent will be used to bring about original presentations including music, audience participation, and PowerPoints to make the case for healthy life choices.

You will become involved in your community in a way few students are. Peer to peer education bridges cultural differences, offers help to students in turbulent relationships, clarifies conflicting cultural messages, and affirms your future.

Royal Fools

The Royal Fools is a Christian improvisational comedy group made up of CVCA students that seeks to entertain using clean humor. While we seek to be fools in the court-jester sense, we are also mindful of 1 Corinthians 3:18: “Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool so that he may be wise.”

We generally have three shows per year, held in the CVCA chapel/auditorium.

SCRAM (Students Concerned Radically About Missions)

SCRAM (Students Concerned Radically About Missions) is a group of students interested in missions who meet from time-to-time during the high school lunch periods. The meetings may include missionary speakers, videos, discussion of mission-related topics, and prayer for CVCA alumni in the mission field.

SCRAM has no membership requirements or fees. Students are welcome to participate in as many meetings as they can. SCRAM funds come from the collection of Boxtops for Education.

Students interested in attending SCRAM should contact Mrs. Nancy Miller in room 132 to be added to the email notification list and related Google Classroom.

Seniors

The following items approximate the various activities and responsibilities of which you will be a part during your senior year. It is our hope that we can help you to have a profitable last year at CVCA. Please keep these documents and refer to them during the year so that you do not miss any important deadlines.


Senior Composite Photo

2016_compsiteslide

Although students may choose to have their personal senior pictures taken at another studio, they MUST use Woodard Photography for their senior composite. This photo will be used in both the yearbook and on the wall composite at the school. It is very important that these photos are all shot in the same manner with the same background and lighting. There is no cost to you for a “yearbook only” portrait session for those seniors photographed before our yearbook deadline. However, you personally need to make an appointment with the studio starting as soon as possible if you haven’t already done so.

It is important to have your composite photo taken before the deadline. After that date or if photo must be re-taken due to inappropriate dress, Woodard Photography will need to charge you anywhere from $25 to $100.

Appropriate Dress:

This is a professional portrait, which will be placed in the senior section of the yearbook and sent with your applications for colleges and scholarships. Formal business dress is required.

Gentlemen: Coat and tie. No exceptions.

Ladies: Suit or dress. DO NOT WEAR sweaters or tops that are tight, revealing, sleeveless, low-cut or immodest.

Yearbook Baby Ads

2016_BABYADSlide

This May your senior will be graduating from high school. We would like to offer you a wonderful opportunity to publicly display your love and affection to your son or daughter by advertising in the yearbook. The CVCA Scroll, the school yearbook, reserves space in the Advertising section of the book for you to publish your final blessings, thoughts, words of encouragement, along with any favorite baby and/or senior portraits.

These “Baby Ads” help to defray the costs of publishing such a large 4-color volume and have become quite a tradition that is loved by all. All you need to do is to reserve your space as soon as possible, and then provide us with your message and photos.

We encourage you to have your prized photos scanned at a professional photo center (i.e. CVS, Walmart, etc.) and burned onto a CD. If necessary, we can scan them, but will NOT return the photos until after the book is published. For your convenience, we are providing advertising rates and an order form (PDF). Please return the order form with your CD or photos and personalized message by the deadline. Note that no ad space will be reserved without payment, and ALL copy and images. We ask that you send no more than three photos, and if scanned, in jpeg format.

Reserve your space today! The cost to you is $40 per block until the deadline found in the above PDF. Final deadline for reserving ad space can also be found in the above PDF, and the cost will be raised to $50 per block. A of the yearbook staff will be calling you in the next few weeks to answer any questions you may have.

Please note that in addition to senior baby ads, we can advertise your church or business at the same low rate. If interested, fill out an additional form and submit separately.

For any questions or concerns, contact Marian Stofsick at (330) 929-0575 ext. 226 or mstofsick@cvcaroyals.org
