High School

Our high school program extends the flexible approach of our earlier grades with individualized learning plans developed through the use of the Minnesota Career Information System (MCIS) and teacher created curriculum. Most students experience a combination of traditional instruction, online courses and project-based learning as they complete their graduation requirements.
Our small program of about 60 Fusion and 50 PASCAL students ensures that students get lots of attention and individual support. Small classes are conducive to rich discussions and a focus on learning with and from other students.
All students participate in a grade level advisory which has a different focus in each grade. Students will cover character development, transitions (what do you want to do after high school) and job or college based skills in their advisories. CVA focuses on making well rounded individuals with the help of our daily advisory period.
CVA has found that our schedule allows students to develop the much needed time management and organizational skills to prepare students for life after high school.

To offer the widest possible selection of classes, we partner with Northern Star Online, a Minnesota-approved online program and Edmentum. This allows us to offer well over 100 different courses online to complement our traditional and project-based approaches.

Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
Top of Page

We encourage students to participate in Minnesota's PSEO program. This program allows students to take classes at participating colleges and universities and earn both high school and college credit. Students can do this on a full-time or part-time basis while enrolled at CVA.  For additional information please connect with Tim Tydlacka, Principal.
Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Each participating college or university sets its own admissions requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders are eligible to enroll in PSEO on a more limited basis (see note below). Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. If a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO on a term by term basis.
By March 1 of each year, or three weeks prior to the date a student registers for courses for the following school year (whichever is earlier), schools must provide PSEO information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families. To assist the district in planning, a student must inform the district by May 30 of each year of their intent to enroll in postsecondary courses during the following school year.
There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course; however, students may incur fees for equipment that becomes their property when the course or program is completed, textbooks that are not returned to the postsecondary institution according to their policies, or for tuition costs if they do not notify the district by May 30 and the district does not waive this date requirement.
Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses. For more information on these funds, access the PSEO Mileage Reimbursement Program Instructions.
Enrolling in a PSEO course does not prohibit a student from participating in activities sponsored by the high school.
School districts must allow a PSEO student reasonable access to the high school building, computers and/or other technology resources during regular school hours to participate in PSEO courses, whether on-line or on campus.
Each year, districts must publish their grade-weighting policy on their website, including a list of courses for which students can earn weighted grades.
All courses taken through the PSEO program must meet graduation requirements. Districts must transcript credits earned in PSEO by a ratio prescribed in statute. Districts have the authority to decide which subject area and standards the PSEO course meets. If there is a dispute between the district and the student regarding the number of credits granted for a particular course, the student may appeal the board's decision to the commissioner. The commissioner's decision regarding the number of credits will be final.
Postsecondary institutions are required to allow PSEO students to enroll in online courses consistent with the institution’s policy regarding postsecondary student enrollment in online courses.
Tenth-grade students may initially enroll in one Career and Technical Education (CTE) PSEO course if they receive a reading proficiency score of “meets” or “exceeds” on the 8th grade MCA. If 10th graders taking a CTE PSEO course earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional postsecondary courses. If the student did not take the MCA in 8th-grade, another reading assessment accepted by the enrolling postsecondary institution can be substituted. For students with disabilities, there is an alternative option to demonstrate reading proficiency.
