Back to Top Strategic Plan Accomplishments - Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy

The 2020 Strategic Plan

For 50 years, God has used Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy to impact generations of families, helping transform lives locally, regionally, and around the globe as we strive to continue Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ.

In pursuit of this mission, we created a strategic plan three years ago, and by God’s grace and with the support of friends of CVCA, many of the originally proposed initiatives have already been accomplished.


“Without the generous support of donors’ contributions, none of the amazing opportunities created by CVCA would be possible for me.”  —Isaiah Smith, Class of 2021, Recipient of the Forrest Stein Memorial Scholarship
