Carrabassett Valley Academy

CVA logo

Overview: CVA delivers specially designed academic programs that enable students from seventh grade to post-graduate to obtain a traditional college-preparatory education while pursuing their athletic goals. This time-tested integration of academics, athletics, and responsible community living provides the framework for students to become confident and independent thinkers, advocates for their learning, and responsible citizens while positioning them for outstanding college placement. Our goal is to help a student create a strong high school resume so when they graduate they have many post-secondary academic and athletic choices. Also, our creative and extensive use of iPad technology plus our small class size provides outstanding support of students who travel. Many of our teaching staff have been with us over 12 years so they have the breadth and depth of experience to understand the student/athlete.
