How do I start the enrollment process?
- If your a new family interested in the school, you need to complete an Enrollment Interest Form.

What enrollment priority mean?
- Crescent View Academy will always accept their returning students first. We allocated a window of time for returning families and staff to re-enroll their children. Our priorities help us to make decisions in accepting students into our program. We believe that it is important that we share these priorities so that there are no mixed feelings about why some students get accepted versus other students.
Why is there limited seating?
- For the academic school 2016-2017 CVA will have the following seats:
At Crescent View Academy we believe in the importance in keeping the student-teacher ratio and classroom size manageable. Researchers have found that gains in achievement generally occur when class size is reduced to 20 or less students. At CVA we believe that preschool, elementary and middle school are pivotal learning years for a child and that keeping students in smaller groups strengthens their opportunity to grow, develop and acquire the academic, social and spiritual knowledge needed to be successful in post-secondary education.
Education researchers suspect that class size reduction in the early grades helps students achieve because there is a greater opportunity for individuals interaction between students and teacher in a small class. Teachers generally have better morale in small classrooms and are less likely to be overwhelmed by having a variety of students with different backgrounds and achievement levels.
“Frederick Mosteller notes “Reducing [the size of classes in the early grades] reduces the distractions in the room and gives the teacher more time to devote to each child.”
In the early grades, students are just beginning to learn about the rules of the classroom, and they are figuring out if they can cope with the expectations of education. If they have more opportunity to interact with their teacher, they are more apt to feel like they can cope.

Can I transfer from a public school or your school?
- Yes, you can transfer your child from any public or private school. However, we do not have services that cater to students with special needs. If you are unsure about your child’s needs you can schedule an appointment with the Principal and discuss your options.
