Academic Advisors

The person at CVHS who will partner with you to help advise and guide you academically throughout high school. This guidance includes choosing classes, monitoring your academic progress and helping you update your four year plan. Every student will formally meet with their Academic Advisor in person twice a year, once each semester. We encourage you to communicate with your Academic Advisor as needed throughout the year. Each Academic Advisor oversees a group of students assigned via alphabetic order by last name.
