Please Pardon Our Dust

We are thrilled that construction for the new CVCA Fieldhouse is underway! Please pardon the mess, noise, and occasional inconveniences as we welcome this exciting new addition to our campus.

Following CVCA on social media is a great way to hear what’s happening, while also telling others about our great school!
