School Reviews

A few days ago another parent said ''When you walk into CVA it feels just like getting a hug''. What a great way to describe the family atmosphere at CVA! I found everything I look for in a school at CVA - great teachers who care about our children, excellent academics, wonderful parents, amazing art program, well equipped attractive facilities and classrooms, and an excellent (very inclusive) sports program.
