Don’t Forget About Service Hours

Christmas break is a great time for students to get ahead on their 16-hour volunteer service requirement due in May. Here are a few reminders.

If students need ideas: 

  • Open the Bible Service class in canvas. 
  • Click on the “Helper Helper” assignment.
  • Go to the “Find Opportunities” tab. 
  • Click the ongoing opportunities link.

Teachers periodically update the Bible Service gradebook. Here’s how to check the real-time hours status: 

  • Click “See Stats and Goals” in the Canvas assignment. 
  • THE NUMBER ON THE RIGHT represents the approved hours for this school year.
  • Note: The number on the left is a running count of total hours students since students enrolled at CVCA and does not represent this year’s requirement.

Avenues toward College Credit at CVCA – January 10, 2024

Earning college credits during high school allows students to enter college or university with advanced standing, often having already completed some collegiate general education requirements. In addition to the learning opportunities advanced coursework provides, earning college credits while in high school can provide significant financial savings. Many avenues to college credit during high school are affordable or free compared to the cost of traditional college tuition. A qualified CVCA student who strategically plans ahead and takes advantage of multiple credit-earning opportunities may earn college credits equivalent to a semester or even a year’s worth of college courses by the time he or she graduates from CVCA. Opportunities to earn college credit at CVCA include: Advanced Placement (AP) exams, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, and dual credit opportunities – including some that may qualify for funding through Ohio’s College Credit Plus (CCP) program. While taking classes at a local university is also an option through the CCP program, it is not necessary for students to leave CVCA during the school day in order to participate and benefit from these programs.

Come hear about the ways qualified students can gain college experience and credit at low or no additional cost while participating fully in high school life at CVCA! Join us for an Avenues Towards College Credit presentation on January 10, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. in the Learning Commons. The meeting is open to all parents and students, grades 8-11.
