Homecoming 2023

Did you make it back for Homecoming? We had such a great turnout on a beautiful evening. Over 500 alumni enjoyed food trucks, complimentary treats and swag, VIP end zone mingling space and seating during the football game, and tours of the campus.

If you weren’t able to join us, plan to attend in September 2024. We’d love to see you and treat you to a special evening!

What’s Happening on Campus

If you haven’t been back to campus lately, you’d be pleasantly surprised at how the school has grown – in enrollment, programming, and campus improvements. It’s an exciting time to be a student at CVCA!

The Royal Technic Robotics Team recently competed at Grove City College in the BEST Robotics Hub competition. CVCA’s team of 6th-12th graders won three first place finishes, one second, one third, and first place in the BEST Overall Award. The team is now preparing for the Denver, Colorado Regional Championships. 

With our growing middle school numbers, we want to make sure we have the staff to support our teachers and ultimately our families. We are pleased to announce that we have added Miss Sarah Telepak to our team!

Our Schools of Distinction have been doing amazing things. Check out what our School of Business and Entrepreneurship is up to in their most recent newsletter.

SOBE’s Shya Coffee recently introduced a Subscription Service! Check out their website to make an order, and learn more about how you can support their mission to help the women in Rwanda.

Do you have a student that you would like to attend CVCA next fall? Or do you know someone who may be interested in CVCA? Please invite them to our Family Preview Night on November 7. Learn more and register below.

Also, we are experiencing a large volume of applications, so we encourage interested families to apply soon!

The Campaign for Mission Advancement

CVCA is in the middle of an initiative that will invest in PEOPLE, FACILITIES, and PROGRAMS to advance our mission of Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ. This exciting 

It has been exciting to welcome more families to CVCA, but this enrollment growth has resulted in max capacity for our current square footage. So, part of this campaign includes a much-needed new wing of classrooms scheduled to be completed in August of 2024. Check out all of the plans HERE!

YOU Can Make a Difference at CVCA…
