the newest addition to the king cummings campus
In September 2013, CVA opened the doors to its newly constructed academic center. This center adjoins the dorm which was completed in 2007. The building provides purpose built educational space to foster the highest level of teaching and learning for CVA student-athletes.
THE NEW 17,000 SQ.FT. BUILDING INCLUDES:
- 10 Classrooms - 7, 995 sq. ft.2 Science Labs
- 1,700 sq. ft.1 Art Studio - 700 sq. ft. (including a ceramics studio with potter wheel and kiln)
- Music Room - 570 sq ft. (sound isolated)
- For a total of 10, 965 sq. ft. of instructional space
All instructional spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art instructional materials, interactive technology, and wireless high speed internet. The building is designed to be energy efficient with radiant heat and energy saving lighting.
In addition to the instructional space, the building includes: two study lounges, locker spaces, teachers’ room, conference room, 5 administrative offices, and a 1600 sq. ft. multi-purpose atrium.
All classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art projection systems allowing teachers and students to wirelessly display material from their iPads. With all teachers, students, and coaches now using iPads, the lines of communication are constant and efficient. This makes it possible for those traveling to keep up with their assignments and always have access to their teachers for questions.
“Having a classroom with dedicated lab benches with new equipment and supplies, has been incredibly useful for conducting multiple day labs. The space and light in the classroom has made it a wonderful place for students to learn and grow. We now have a beautiful view of the mountain which inspires us all on a daily basis and reminds us that excellence in both academics and athletics is achievable.”
- Karen Lanoue-Egan, Science Teacher
“The upgrade to our facilities and technology has noticeably improved the experience for student-athletes. The iPads really allow the students to get the most out of their academics while on the road.”
