Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ
Educating Servants for Christ… We are a middle and high school committed to high academic standards. Our biblically-integrated, college-preparatory curriculum is delivered by a dedicated staff of Christian professionals. We are committed to teaching from a biblical worldview and philosophy.
Cultivating Servants for Christ… We are committed to providing our students with experiences and opportunities that will foster in them a servant’s heart. This cultivation is facilitated through participation in extra-curricular activities such as inter-scholastic athletics, music, theater, and many service organizations. In addition, we sponsor annual short-term mission trips as well as numerous opportunities for service throughout the school year.

Learning and Discovery Beyond the Classroom
This week-long in-depth study takes place the week after Christmas break between the first and second semesters. Students can chose from more than 50 on-campus classes as well as international and domestic educational trips and professional career service opportunities.
The mission of Jterm is to increase opportunities of learning and exploration that challenge students in their interests and encourage deeper faculty-student relationships through enriching electives, education travel, service, missions trips, and career experience opportunities.
Schools of Distinction
Mentorships, Internships, and Educational Experiences
The Schools of Distinction include specialty tracks of Arts & Humanities, Business & Entrepreneurship, Engineering, Medicine, and Ministry within our comprehensive college-prep program. Our mission is to expose students to professional fields through curricular enhancements, mentoring relationships, and experiential learning; thus providing insight into His calling for their lives.
Equipping Students to Impact the World
The Student Ministries Department helps organize daily Bible classes, weekly chapel services, Connections groups, mission trips, service opportunities, and Christian clubs intended to equip students to impact others through the Gospel and for the Kingdom of God. Our Student Ministries staff also provides a ministry of availability to meet with students through the journey of life. With multiple Student Ministries programs available, there are many opportunities to grow spiritually at CVCA.
Pursuing Victory Beyond Competition
Offering a broad range of high school and middle school athletic opportunities, our program includes 25 varsity teams, participating in the Ohio High School Athletic Association, and 12 middle school teams. A member of the Principals’ Athletic Conference, the Royals program is comprised of dedicated Christian coaches and excellent facilities. Our athletes and teams have repeatedly advanced to the state level and produced many state champions. Many athletes go on to receive college scholarships and compete in the NCAA and NAIA. Our ultimate goal, however, is that the world will see Christ in us as we compete and that we would know victory beyond competition.
Developing Artistic Excellence for the Glory of God and the Benefit of the Community
Our Fine Arts program is growing to meet the increasing interest in the arts and is led by a team of talented and specialized instructors. The Fine Arts Department offers many opportunities for students to be involved in vocal and instrumental music, theater, and the visual arts.
Christian Education is a significant investment. If affordability is a factor, you may want to pursue these cost reduction options: Financial Aid, Scholarships, and the Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP). CVCA offered more than $1.5 million dollars in tuition assistance in the 2016-2017 school year. A CVCA education is more affordable than you think.
School bus transportation is provided by 11 area school districts as well as the Akron Metro Bus system, and by a private transportation service with riders living in the I-271 corridor. CVCA also shares three bus routes with Walsh Jesuit serving students from Medina, Brunswick, Hinckley, Strongsville, North Royalton, Brecksville, Bainbridge, Solon, and East Cleveland. Zip code lists to aid carpooling are also available from the school office upon request.
CVCA’s Unique Middle School Experience
We place a premium value on the 6th to 8th grade middle school years and view them as a trajectory for high school. Our faculty and staff are excited to join with students at this critical stage and engage, encourage, and point them to Christ on their journey. We have an intentional approach to the particular needs of middle school students and provide a safe environment where they can thrive academically, socially, physically, and spiritually.
