Internships and Volunteering

We believe in equipping your children with the skills to be able to learn for the rest of their lives! By instilling in them a method of analytical thinking, they can be independent thinkers and be high performers in their chosen careers. We offer several volunteering opportunities. Our partnerships with local colleges provided student opportunities for work-study, internships, and work experience. Contact us to apply.

What others say…

My son struggled with mathematics during his school years – until we enrolled him at CVAI. That has been the best decision we made, and his educators have worked hard to get his mathematics to a level we never thought possible!

― Mark, Grade 8 parent

My daughter has loved being at CVAI for the last 5 years. The learning environment makes the difference and I’m so proud that she has been accepted into college next year!
