    We have been at CVCS for 4 years and love it! The teachers, staff and administration are professional, hard working, and create a loving "family type" environment not only for the students, but the entire family. We have loved the excellence in education, spiritual development, and extra curricular activities. This is a great school and I would highly recommend to anyone.
    A wonderful, wonderful school with a caring community of teachers, students, staff and administrators! A great academic environment with the priceless value-adds of biblical education and genuine community. If you want "much more than a school" seriously consider #CVCS
