What if my child has special needs?
We are indeed an alternative, holistic school and we are proud that we are able to support many different types of learners. In a perfect world we would have the resources and the teachers who could accommodate any student, regardless of their challenges. However, we are also aware that we are not a school for every student, and students with high levels of special needs may not be able to have their needs met on our campus. Students with significant learning disabilities that have resulted in significant academic impairments, students with significant behavioral issues, and students who need extensive occupational and/or speech therapy may not be the best fit for CVIS. We are happy to speak with all families who are considering CVIS who have questions about the suitability of CVIS for their child. Please contact the School Director, Andy Slavin, directly and he will make time to speak with you. Andy has extensive experience with all different kinds of learners and he will be able to give you an honest assessment of whether or not CVIS will be able to meet your child’s needs. First and foremost we want to be sure that all students find the school that can best meet their needs!
