New Campus Campaign - Phase II
Phase II of Carrabassett Valley Academy’s (CVA) New Campus Campaign will raise $7,000,000 to complete the construction of an entirely new campus for CVA. The new campus will provide safe, modern, and purpose-built facilities to accommodate CVA’s world-class programs. Phase II will result in the construction of two new buildings: (1) a state-of-the-art academic center and (2) a mixed-use facility that will house the dining hall, administrative offices, and community spaces. The new academic center is currently underway with construction to be complete by July 2013. Phase II also includes an endowment goal which is critical to CVA’s financial stability and long term sustainability.
Phase II follows the successful completion of Phase I of the New Campus Campaign, which resulted in the acquisition of land, general infrastructure improvements, and the building of a soccer field, a running track, and a 108-bed dormitory.

Phase II of the New Campus Campaign addresses our most pressing needs. With the exception of our athletic and residential life programs, all school activities currently take place in a converted ski lodge. Though modifications have been made, the building can no longer accommodate the Academy’s needs.
Beyond the Academy, CVA has grown to become a vital asset to the local community. As the second largest employer in the region, CVA provides 50 professional jobs to the town’s residents. As an economic engine, the school directly and indirectly contributes millions of dollars into the rural Western Maine economy. In the short-term, the construction of CVA’s new facilities will provide an influx of cash to the local economy; long term, the improved facilities will help ensure the continued success of the Academy and the community.
Beyond facilities, the new campus will allow CVA to grow and improve our programs – both academic and athletic. Academically, the construction of modern, purpose-built classrooms will ensure that our students learn in the best possible environment and that our teachers are no longer forced to curtail their curriculum due to lack of adequate facilities. During the design process of the new Academic Center, CVA’s teachers and Building Committee have been careful to ensure that each classroom is custom tailored for its subjects and courses.
