School Reviews

I graduated in 2006, having attended CVC for high school. It prepared me academically for college, and gave me the tools I needed to succeed. I was able to be involved in sports and dramatic productions, as well as band and choir, while still maintaining an excellent GPA that allowed me acceptance to my top three schools! I still have friends from my time, there, as well, and keep in touch with a handful of my teachers. The community here is outstanding, and something I took for granted while I was there. In hindsight, I'm so glad I was able to go to CVC, and wish I had been here from Kindergarten (or even pre-K) up!
