I have three children. Who have been attending CVCA. My daughter for 6 years and two boys. I love this school, the staff and parents. This is a loving school. I am so proud of my children. They are loving, kind children who mind and are respectful. The school has also taught them these values. The education they get is wonderful. The teachers are willing to do what it takes. Discipline at CVCA is not a problem. Open conversation is encouraged with the staff and the principal is very willing to take care of any concerns right away. Thank you CVCA! We love you so much!! We love you Mr. Zahn!!

This school provides and excellent, well-rounded curriculum. My two teenagers have benefitted greatly from the honors classes offered and the willingness of the teachers to help them after school when needed. The sports and music programs have enriched them in more ways than I had expected and provided a great example of teamwork and comraderie. The spiritual atmosphere at the school is apparent with strong student leaders planning and implementing worships, purity emphasis weekend, sharing personal testimonies at churches and providing week of prayer programs for other local SDA schools. Opportunities for community service are offered and encouraged. Student-led 'Get Real with God' get togethers are held each Wednesday evening.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
