Cumberland Valley Christian School

  • 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.
  • We offer dual enrollment opportunities with a variety of colleges, including several college classes that are taught on our campus.
