Chicago vocational careeer academy is a great school. I've been attending this school since last year which was my freshman year.At first I was nervous to start highschool. However, the staff and students were welcoming and friendly. The students were nice and I didn't have any issues fitting in.I love the teachers too; They've built positive relationships with all of the students and they actually care about us. I never thought I'd be attending the school of my dreams, but suprisingly I am.I used to hate school and have a hard time learning! I questioned whether I was smart or not .But after attending CVCA I realised it's not always the student's learning ability, but also the teacher's ability to teach.I've had teachers who rush through the lesson,and were only interested in the pay check .But at CVCA the teachers genuinely care and teach to the best of their ability. The right school is so important for a child and really hard to find. Im excited to see what this year brings .

I love my high school Chicago vocational career academy. I love the teachers and the nice students. I’ve learned so much about not only basic subjects but about real world problems. This school has taught me things on a much deeper level than any other school I attended has. My teachers actually have a passion for teaching us and helping us. This school has a lot of great opportunities to offer teenagers in Chicago. This school has also helped me to grow and develop into a better person and a young adult.
CVCA is a career/ trade school, this school can teach you many things. I've made the right choice attending CVCA because ive learned a lot and many opportunities was brought to me.
