The network of the 11 California Virtual Academy schools and K¹² ignite the minds of children like yours to bring learning and innate possibility alive. Together, we are helping California students in grades K-12 reach their true, personal potential.


The network of the 11 California Virtual Academy schools and K¹² give California kids in grades K–12 the chance to learn at the pace and in ways that are right for them. CAVA offers:
