CVA provides families and students an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education.

Combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by state-certified teachers, CVA provides each student with a personalized learning experience.
Students study the core subjects of English/language arts, math, science and history, as well as some electives. CVA’s dedicated teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive online classes, allowing students to enjoy a safe learning environment anywhere with an Internet connection.
In addition to scheduled online classes, teachers offer one-on-one instruction and support, online chat sessions, and family phone calls to build close partnerships in support of academic success. Students complete schoolwork using laptops and educational materials that are shipped to their homes for the start of the school year.
Throughout the year CVA fosters a sense of community through in-person field trips and social outings. Virtual clubs and organizations also allow students to further explore shared interests together in an online setting.
