A close-knit community is based upon a strong system of communication, leadership, and structure. At Carrabassett Valley Academy, students practice leadership and learn through experience. Students help run dish duty crews and campus clean-up teams. Students may also lead a community club, run for student council, and apply to be a Peer Mentor, Peer Tutor, and/or a member of the CVA chapter of the National Honor Society. Students who hold leadership positions serve as role models for the rest of the student body. These student leaders also serve a vital role as a communication link between students and faculty to express opinions, provide feedback, and effect change. These and other leadership opportunities allow our student-athletes to develop the skills needed to be productive members of their community.
