CVCS is a fully accredited school by the Association of Christian Schools International and recognized by the Virginia Council for Private Education.  

Classroom teachers hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree and are certified by the Association of Christian Schools International.  All faculty and staff are carefully selected on the basis of Christian character and professional credentials.

In addition to a traditional classroom, small class size, challenging academics, and Christian values, CVCS offers special resource classes in Spanish, music, physical education, technology, and library science.  Students pen-pal with foreign kids, visit the nursing home every month,
attend chapel services every week, take field trips for fun and learning, compete for national fitness awards, build, create and experiment almost every day!

Open Court reading is a research-based language arts program that is designed to teach students skills in reading, vocabulary, writing, and spelling.  Open Court is used in grades K-3.  Grades 4 & 5 utilize literature circles and novel ties for reading, and use an integrated approach to vocabulary across the curriculum.  Spelling lists are derived from Evan-Moor and Sadlier -Oxford for grades 4 and 5.    Middle School students focus on literature, composition, vocabulary and grammar utilizing a variety of texts and resources including Sadlier-Oxford and Glencoe.

ABeka math is a challenging curriculum that prepares students to excel in math computation as well as in reasoning and problem-solving.  Teachers use a variety of supplemental materials to reinforce Math concepts.  Middle School students are placed on different Math tracks based on ability and achievement.  Glencoe provides the textbooks for MS Math I, MS Math II, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra.  

A newly revised ACSI Science program is used in grades 1-5., while Kindergarten exploration is based off of the ABeka series.  Students learn through research and investigation while enjoying beautifully illustrated textbooks.  Apologia provides the foundations for Middle School Science.  In  ABeka Social Studies (grades K-8), students explore the world around them with lots of time for creating, building, investigating, experimenting, and field trips.  

The ACSI Bible Curriculum teaches children the foundation of God's Word with application to their everyday lives in grades K-5.  In Middle School Bible,  7th and 8th grade students delve into scripture through the study of Genesis 1-11, the Book of Mark, the Book of Hebrews, and other Books of the Bible based on time and needs of the students.  Sixth grade Bible is an overview of all 66 books and is based on "Route 66."  

In third grade, CVCS students take the InView school ability test followed by the Terra Nova
Achievement test in grades 3 and above.

Students in grades 3 and above are eligible for the "Honor Roll" by maintaining excellent conduct and all As and Bs.

Resource classes are offered in music, recorder, art, and Spanish.  Students also benefit from a
full-service library/media center offering over 4,500 books and 20 computer workstations.
