How It Works (High School)

The high school students in each of the nine academies receive many benefits through the K12 high school program, including:

  • Individualized Learning Plan for each student charts a course for success during and after high school
  • Graduation Plan that helps students track their progress towards a diploma
  • Teachers, advisors, counselors, coordinators, and other educational personnel offering personalized, extensive support to students and families
  • Extracurricular clubs and activities including enrichment programs, ASB and National Honors Society
  • Virtual and In-person teacher-led and school-sponsored events where students can network with their peers

Who is this intended for?

Students in grades 9–12 who reside within the state of California are eligible to attend one of the nine California Virtual Academies for high school.

What are the tuition costs?

Because we are part of the public school system, families do not pay tuition for a student to attend one of the California Virtual Academies and the California Virtual Academies will loan a computer to an enrolling family and provide an internet stipend upon request. However, common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided.

CAVA2College Program

CAVA has partnered with Norco College to offer the CAVA2College Program. The purpose of the Cava2College initiative is to provide eligible CAVA high school students an opportunity to experience high quality teaching and learning in selected virtual college courses to begin their journey toward achievement of an associate degree and/or earn transferable credits to four-year universities. Students will be enrolled in courses that meet both high school and college requirements, allowing them the opportunity to earn dual credits. Students who have successfully completed 10th grade (or higher) and meet all program entrance requirements are eligible to participate in the Cava2College program. The college has agreed to waive the enrollment fee, health fee, and any tuition costs.
