In 1967, 14 men created a Forward Planning Committee to pray and discuss forming a new Christian secondary school in northeast Ohio. The group committed to forming a school based on Christian principles with excellent standards – a goal that has guided the school since.
1968 – Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy was founded.
1969 – Classes started with 198 students in grades 7 to 12.
1970 – The Academy’s new building was completed.
1970 – CVCA held its first commencement ceremony for their senior class of eight students.
1975 – CVCA became an Ohio state-chartered middle and high school for grades 7 to 12.
In 2016, a new strategic plan aimed at bestpreparing 21st century disciples of Christ by maximizing their gifts while fostering an authentic relationship with Jesus to create Kingdom impact. This goal resulted in the addition of 6th grade to the Academy in the fall of 2018 and a new comprehensive middle school program for 6th through 8th grade students.
CVCA’s campus is still on the site of the original building. Both inside and out, it is a testimony to the Lord’s faithfulness. We invite you to come see what Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ looks like for our students, faculty, and staff.
