Academy Application Process

Clayton Valley Charter High School is proud to share updated and exciting Academy information that impacts the Class of 2027 and beyond. Academy participation is not required as a student at CVCHS. Students may opt to take courses in and out of an Academy (adhering to any prerequisite that may be in place) as a stand-alone course.

These updates do not impact current Academy students (Classes 2024 through 2026) as there is no change for currently-enrolled Academy students with the exception of the opportunity to enroll in Advanced Placement (AP) courses if desired.

Highlights for the Class of 2027 and beyond include:

  • Increased opportunities for all interested students. Students are no longer "selected" but encouraged to research programs and select an Academy offering that addresses their goals and areas of interest.
  • Ensures Academy course offerings align to  CA College and Career Readiness Standards.
  • Ensures all Academy students the ability to experience pathways of interest that include industry-aligned certifications, college articulation and internships or work-based learning.
  • Continued Academy collaboration with all Academy events, pathways, field trips and cohorted enrollment in common "UGLY Hour" class periods twice a week.

Please access the revised Academy + Pathways offerings for the Class of 2027 and beyond here. This table provides an overview of Academy experiences students may enjoy.  Revisions will not impact programming in a significant way.  

New students will enroll in an Introductory course aligned to their pathway of interest. These courses are carefully selected to provide a strong foundation of skills and content to support the pathway concentration of choice. Academy participation and graduation acknowledgement is awarded for those completing an Academy Pathway.
