City Vancouver Academy wishes to provide a challenging and exciting program to students. There are, however, certain expectations of students who are accepted into our program. These expectations include important obligations on the part of each student accepted to study at our schools, and we set a high standard in requiring all students to meet their obligations.

Each student and the custodian or parent(s) of each student that is accepted into CVA high school program must read the following statement and must, by signing it, agree to be bound by and to honour its terms strictly.

1. Law, Rules and Regulations

We agree to abide by all laws of Canada, the rules, regulations and policies of City Vancouver Academy which include those pertaining to attendance, homework and behaviour. In particular, understand that the unlawful use of drugs will not be tolerated and that alcohol use is also forbidden in all circumstances. City Vancouver Academy has a firm policy of dismissing students who violate drug and alcohol rules.

Students must also show the following:

  • Students must attend school on a regular basis. Absences must be satisfactorily explained

  • Student is expected to complete all homework and assignments and to use English as the primary language during the program

Students must live with a responsible adult who is their custodian or their boarding parent.
