Students come to us for a small school experience and, in many cases, because they want a place they can be, as one parent put it, "comfortable in their own skin." While we maintain and enforce behavior expectations much like many other schools, we recognize that every student expresses themselves in different ways, and we welcome that. As a result, CVA has an environment where differences, quirks and unique characteristics are respected and enjoyed.
Students and parents comment frequently on the genuine, relaxed, respectful nature of the school. Behavior issues are rare, and students and staff all work hard to keep it that way.
