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.

A Miracle of God's Grace

Since 1967, the Lord has blessed CVCA immeasurably. Our campus, curriculum, and enrollment have grown far beyond what our founding fathers could have imagined, impacting multiple generations of students, faculty, and staff. 

Today, CVCA is a thriving community of current families, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the school who are unified in thankfulness for God’s blessings on His school and committed to supporting its continued growth and impact on both current and future students.

CVCA’s campus is still on the site of the original building completed in 1970. Through years of additions, expansions, campaigns, and transitions, our campus has remained a visible testimony to the Lord’s faithfulness. We invite you to come visit and hope you will make this campus your school home too.
