Families choose to enroll at CAVA for a wide variety of reasons. Athletes or performers may be looking to balance a full schedule. Advanced learners can enroll in Advanced Placement® courses or take college courses through the dual enrollment program. Online school also allows for a more personalized one-on-one learning environment for students seeking extra assistance. Regardless the reason, the engaging interactive curriculum and technology combined with a strong partnership between families and teachers makes it possible to focus on each student’s academic needs.

“The education provided by each of the California Virtual Academies enables students to learn at their own pace, explore their interests and achieve their academic potential,” said CAVA head of school April Warren. “Learning becomes a wonderful community and family experience, and we are proud of our outstanding parent, community and faculty support system.”

Students attend both live and recorded class sessions that are accessed online, enabling students and teachers to engage and interact as if they were sitting together in a traditional classroom. Each student is supported by a California-credentialed teacher who monitors student progress while providing professional insight and instruction. Teachers communicate with students via phone, email and the online classroom technology in order to provide a personalized approach that helps prepare students for career or college success.

The rigorous curriculum includes core subjects, as well as art, music and world languages. An Advanced Learning Program is available for younger students, and high schoolers may prepare for college with honors and Advanced Placement® courses.

In addition to academics, students may participate in online clubs, and teachers organize numerous field trips and social activities where students have the opportunity to meet their teachers and classmates in person. Moreover, CAVA @ Los Angeles, CAVA @ Maricopa, and CAVA @ San Joaquin offer a program called Community Day, which combines the best of online learning with weekly face-to-face interaction. On Community Days, students receive instruction from teachers in math and language arts and participate in various other educational activities, such as physical education and science fairs, while parents receive support and network with other parents.

CAVA will host several online and in-person informational events to help parents learn more about the program. For a list of events and more information about California Virtual Academies and the application process, please visit
