    We are just are just now completing our first year at CVCS and we can honestly say that we truly feel blessed that we found and chose this school for daughter. We love the sense of community and the family atmosphere as well as the phenomenal group of teachers, coaches and supporting staff who truly love our children and embrace the Christian Faith. We are grateful for our Head of Schools, Chris Rutz as well as our elementary principal, Tessa Samuelsen as they lead us on this prosperous journey. We are also looking forward this year to the significant enhancements and expansion of the campus as the school has already been such a blessing to our family. Without a doubt, this is truly an National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence!

    We are new parents at CVCS with a High Schooler, if you are considering schools for your son or daughter, this may be helpful. The community of people at CVCS is dedicated to helping your child reach their full potential. The staff and teachers are passionate and dedicated. Academics are a very high bar - but so is character development. Something that most parents don't realize is that, if participation in activities and sports is a priority for your child, a smaller school is the ideal environment. They can play Girl's volleyball (even if they aren't 6' tall), they can play Football (even if they don't plan on a career in the NFL). Leadership opportunities abound, and they are meaningful roles - not just selling tickets or other fund raising item. Performing arts? Take your pick. All of this in a safe, drug-free environment. Nice families, nice kids, highly motivational staff and you will feel part of the experience.

    Capistrano valley christian schools provided academic excellence for its students. Fantastic teaching, fantastic teachers, and a fantastic learning environment. One thing I would like to see change, however, was the workload. there was an incredible amount of homework each night, and, quite usually, a very high penalty if one did not turn in the homework. There was so much homework at times, that it seemed that the teachers wanted to have their students teach themselves. This is far from the case, however, as the quality of the teachers at Capistrano valley christian schools is amazing.
