Students earn high school credits by successfully completing high school level courses. All CVA high school courses are provided online, except for Creative Art. To secure credit for Creative Art coursework through CVA, the student must submit a portfolio, including a Portfolio Evidence of Completion Form, which includes a log of learning and activity hours and lesson work samples. This documentation is completed with the guidance of the student’s CVA teacher.
