Early Access Application for NEw Students

Current CVCA students DO NOT need to reapply for next year due to Continuous Re-enrollment.

CVCA families who will be adding a new student for the 2024-2025 school year can now apply through the Early Access Application. Admissions season begins for the general public on October 1. Due to anticipated high enrollment, we encourage you to apply now to secure your place in the admissions process!

New Mission Moments Video

Mission Moments videos are about communication and clarity. We currently have over 1,050 students and 700+ families spanning grades 6-12 and residing in eight different counties. This video series is a way to bring us all together each month to shine a light on some of the foundational aspects of CVCA and our mission of Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ.

In this new video, the president of our school, Jason Spodnik, discusses what it means to Cultivate students at CVCA. Have you seen the other videos in this series? Check them out on the MY CVCA page.

Student Wednesday morning worship – October 4

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).
