SIMI VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For many area students, back to school is as simple as turning on their computers and logging into class this fall. Students at California Virtual Academy @ Los Angeles (CAVA @ LA) an accredited, full-time, online public charter school, will begin their 2016-2017 school year on August 29 as the program marks its 14th year of operation in the state.

Families enroll in CAVA @ LA for a wide variety of reasons. Some students are advanced learners, motivated to increase their knowledge beyond the basic course offerings, while others are athletes or performers looking to balance a full schedule.
The innovative curriculum and technology, combined with a strong partnership between families and teachers, allows for the state-certified teachers to provide a personalized learning experience for each student.
"The students that enroll in CAVA @ LA seek a personalized learning experience that enables them to excel and explore their own learning style," said Kimberly Odom, Director of Special Education.
