Joni Landry-She has been a great contact and a knowledgeable resource for every parent and student to pass through that building. I believe she's every bit that much help to the teachers and other administrators as well!

Students are challenged without being drowned. I also enjoy that some of the teachers refer to it as "homefun."

I would term it as the rather excellent level of rigor expected of the students.

CIVA's teachers and administration focus on the development of the full student, not just the marks on the report card

CIVA's small atmosphere and individualized focus on learners is outstanding! My eldest, who needed additional help to turn his academics around after a bad experience of apathetic teachers in middle school became a dean's list student with the help of the hard-working CIVA staff. My youngest, who is an extremely advanced 7th grader, is going to be heading to CIVA for high school as I know the teachers there will be able to keep her challenged and engaged instead of bored as so many advanced students are in most modern high school settings.

We have a highly capable and talented group of teachers at CIVA. Many teachers here did not start out in education but found their way here.
