Carpool Zip Code Lists Available

If your family lives in a zip code that does not provide busing to CVCA, you may wish to contact our Office of Enrollment. We would love to provide you with a zip code list that can be utilized to help form carpools or find transportation help.

Student Wednesday morning worship – October 4

Students are invited to worship with CVCA staff on select Wednesday mornings throughout the year. Our first Wednesday Morning Worship will be on October 4 at 7:50 a.m. in the Chapel.

YouScience & Schedule Change for October 12

Parents of ninth graders: your student will report at the regular start of school time on Thursday, October 12 for YouScience testing. (Students in grades 10 and 11 will complete PSAT testing during the same time.)

Through a series of scientifically engineered brain puzzles, YouScience testing  helps to provide CVCA educators and administrators a glimpse into each student’s unique design by God as social creatures, problem solvers, and learners. These insights allow our educators, counselors, and academic success staff to refine and individualize the ways we support each high school student’s learning and course scheduling. Ninth-grade students will complete these tests under the direction of specially designated teachers and be dismissed for an early pickup at 10:20 a.m. To avoid any disruption to ongoing PSAT testing, please pick up your ninth-grade student from the Learning Commons entrance (north side of school).

All CVCA moms and daughters are invited to a special morning of coffee, pastries, a special speaker, and lots of fun. Save the date and watch for more details coming soon! Register HERE.
