Individualized attention to our student-athletes’ academic development has been a keystone of Carrabassett Valley Academy's mission for over 40 years. The Academic Success Program is home for individualized services and resources that support and enhance CVA students' learning experiences beyond the support available in our regular academic program. Whether a student needs extra support with study skills, wants to improve their writing technique, or needs support in a particular subject, the ASP provides support to assist the student in meeting their academic goals.
The ASP continually seeks to stay on the forefront of evidence-based practices and current research. Learning sessions go beyond instruction by empowering students to be advocates for themselves. Students who develop a greater understanding of their own needs also gain the confidence to recognize their own abilities.
Sessions are tailored to meet each student’s individual needs, meeting 1-3 times per week during their time at CVA, whether they attend year-round or for a 5 or 7-month term.
The Academic Success Program (ASP) is home for individualized services and resources that support and enhance CVA students' learning experiences beyond the support available in our regular academic program.
