    CVCA is made up of Christian faculty and staff who share their faith daily, and families whose devotion to their children is obvious. I grew up at this school, and as a family we spent as much time here as we did at home on many days! I’m so glad to have my children here today so they can experience all that CVCA has to offer, and returning here to teach was like coming home.
