Columbia Virtual Academy (CVA) Reviews

My experience with Columbia Virtual Academy (CVA) was excellent!! The teachers were very accessible and always willing to help. The curriculum used (Calvert) was very good, it was completely tuition free, the high school was accredited, and my overall time spent with CVA taught me multiple life lessons that help me in the current moment in college and overall in everyday life. I learned to be able to work independently without any help and learned to motivate myself to keep up with the assignments as it is very easy to fall behind in online classes. The only thing I would change with CVA is to make the high school courses not entirely online. Sitting behind a screen for most of the day can get very stressful and makes it very easy to get distracted from homework. I would suggest making half of the high school courses textbook based and the other online. Overall, I do not regret going to CVA and would recommend this school to my family and friends.

Virtual online learning is text-intensive.

I thought when they say "virtual," everything was going to be audio- and video-based, but no. Sadly.

When you are first start, you'll realize how much you miss listening to your high teachers lecture though slides while you furiously scribble down your notes. My whole method of taking in gigabytes of data that is required of highschoolers crashed, but I slowly adapted.

As like in high school, there are really generous teacher(like, can I retake the final exam?) and really awful ones(I got a zero for an assignment even though I clearly read the instruction right, but the teacher refused to admit it...sigh). This school does put in the effort for their students to talk to other students and the teachers. We do have discussion-based assessments and collaberations.

Anyway, I'm sure you know the pro and con of online learning vs. that of a brick-and-motor school.

-Mistakes are never-ending, just try it out: Come what may
I find my school to be easily accessible. Overall I have enjoyed my time enrolled. I hope to be as satisfied the rest of the school year.
