The mission of Coachella Valley Arts Institute is to increase literacy and artistic creativity to promote the improvement of self-esteem, mental health, health, and economic status through STEM Education and Arts for all, including low-income and at-risk youth

CVAI is a creative art, music and educational nonprofit focused on homeschooling, early graduation, early college entry, as well as artistic training and job skill development while implementing diverse STEM Programming for our students. Perfect for home-schooled and independent study students, music or entertainment artists, gifted students, adolescent parents or bullied students who want to get an early start on the desired career.

Since incorporation, CVAI has evolved to helping students graduate early, find jobs and enroll in college to pursue their dreams. Tutoring, mentoring, and job training are now offered along with accelerated teaching.

Coachella Valley Arts Institute was established as a 501(c)3 charity in 2005. Artistic young adults and or at-risk and low-income youth can learn how a studio works, from pre-production to post-production. In addition to STEM Education and Arts, the students can receive tutoring for all school subjects from TK to college.



Our tutors are among the top in the state.
We are partnered with local colleges to bring you, fresh talented tutors, with that can connect with your student. They promote good education and college importance. CVAI also has tutors that are certified and credentialed teachers. The choice is yours! Each tutor must hold a college degree or a college-level equivalent in credits with youth mentoring and or tutoring experience. Your student will be “partnered” with one of our tutors after a thorough assessment to pair for success. CVAI’s tutors will address each academic weakness. They are highly skilled in their subjects of study. A background check is required before hiring. Parental preference, personality, age, and scores are examined to pair the best tutor to each student.


We add more programs each year.
They will also learn about recorded sound, music promotion through social media, theater, music performing, and booking gigs. Our organization promotes the use of clean, positive, and self-esteem-building lyrics, dance, and expressive art.
Our programs are STEM-based. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The ultimate goal of STEM Education is to encourage students to take an interest in STEM subjects at an early age, benefiting them when they enter the jobs market, and in turn benefiting the economy.
