Cumberland Valley Christian School

Tel: (717)264-3266
Grades: PK - 12 | 416 students
Cumberland Valley Christian School is accredited by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, which is the same organization that awards accreditation to all the public schools in the area.
In a school of our size, class rank is the least important of the three, since our classes are smaller than those in the public schools.
CVCS students have been accepted to and have gone on to succeed at Christian and secular colleges and universities. Difficulty, of course, often depends on how much time a student puts into studying for a particular class or how much aptitude a student has for a particular subject.
Overall, however, the courses offered at CVCS are rigorous.
We strive to provide courses that are as challenging as – or even more challenging than – those offered by public schools.
We offer several advanced courses in our regular curriculum, including Advanced Mathematics and Advanced Physics, as well as Chemistry and Calculus.
Those courses are weighted for GPA calculation, and we offer an Honors U.S. History and Honors English class that is also weighted.
Our classes in English and Social Studies, while not weighted, offer students very demanding course work, some of it college-level.
We also provide a variety of online courses, both in regular classes and AP.
