Crescenta Valley Adventist School – CVAS – participated in National School Choice Week. This is the week when the freedom to choose schools that are the best fit for children is celebrated. Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort. According to its website, National School Choice Week is independent, nonpolitical and nonpartisan, and embraces all types of educational choice – from traditional public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
CVAS took part in the week that is recognized nationally. The school states that it provides academic excellence in a caring, Christian environment. Its students typically test into honors classes of the top high schools and have gone on to attend Harvard, USC, UCLA, Loma Linda Medical School among other prestigious schools.
The school reports that feedback from nearby high schools reflects the strong work ethic and compassion for fellow classmates by CVAS graduates. The CVAS curriculum builds character through leadership and begins each day with a student-led flag salute and school-wide prayer. There is a mentoring program where grades five through eight become “buddies” and read to the younger students in grades kindergarten through four.
The staff encourages a bully-free school where they “catch” the students doing good, creating motivation through positive reinforcement.
