Thank you for your concern
We have recently become aware of a very unfortunate video that is being circulated on social media. While that is indeed CVCA, this video predates the current administration. Under our administration, disciplinary actions have been reduced from 1,149 a year to 146 a year. This video does not, in any way, reflect the current climate; this is not the CVCA way. We appreciate your concern and thank you for notifying us.
Principal Douglas L. Maclin
CVCA alumni say the video was shot in 2011, and all the students seen in the video have graduated or left the school. Students are not wearing the school uniform in the video. This leads many to believe that this was a special class being led by a substitute teacher.
More information will be updated as it becomes available.
