Academic Support (OASIS)

The Office of Academic Success and Instructional Services (OASIS) is available for students needing assistance in study and organizational skills. Students are assigned to OASIS by the Guidance Office based on previous school records, entrance testing, quarter grades, and teacher recommendations. If a student or parent believes that OASIS services would be beneficial, they are encouraged to contact the Director of OASIS to discuss.

Information about the OASIS services and team is available HERE >>

Attendance

Any time a student is going to be absent for all or part of a day, the parents should contact the school office by 7:55 a.m. Attendance is recorded by period. If a student misses one-half or more of a class period, he/she will be considered absent from that class. CVCA’s school calendar conforms to all state expectations regarding the required number of hours for instruction by the Ohio Department of Education. Your child’s attendance is expected.

Procedure for Reporting a Student Absent or Tardy
If a student will be absent or tardy, a parent must notify the Main Office (330-929-0575) by the beginning of the school day; a voice message is sufficient from 4:00 p.m. to 7:45 a.m.

Please follow these guidelines when recording your message:
1. State your name and your student’s name and grade
2. State the date of the absence or tardy
3. State the reason for the absence or tardy

Canvas LMS: How to pair with your child’s account

CVCA uses Canvas as our Learning Management System (LMS). In other words, Canvas is the digital hub of our classroom where upcoming assignments, grades, and resources are posted in one centralized, easy-to-access location.

Parents can access this information by creating an account and then linking their account to their child’s information via a pairing code. This video explains both the account creation process and how to generate a pairing code.

This is the website you’ll use to access Canvas once you have created an account: cvcaroyals.instructure.com/login/canvas. We recommend bookmarking the website for ease of access. Be sure not to include the “www” at the front of the address.

One of the strengths of Canvas from a parent and student perspective is that you can customize the amount of information you receive from Canvas and choose the method in which you receive that information. After you set up and login to your account, this video walks you through the process of customizing your notification settings.

There is a Canvas app for parents that can be downloaded to your smartphone (iOS or Android). You will have to search for “Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy” when you first access the app.

If you have questions about Canvas or need assistance after watching the videos, feel free to send an email to [email protected].
