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.
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.
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.

We are pleased to offer a new flexible and easy tool to manage CVCA lunch program payments. Families may make payments and enjoy a host of new benefits through PayForIt. Once parents have created an account, they can log in any time to view their account balance, set up recurring deposits, select automatic low-balance email notifications, and view purchases from the last thirty days. Deposited funds will be available within two hours. Each student will have a unique PayForIt account, as opposed to a shared family account. Parents can easily manage multiple accounts in one transaction.

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.

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) 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.
