The Conestoga Valley Virtual Academy provides students living within the Conestoga Valley School District flexible scheduling options, rigorous curriculum and the opportunity to earn our diploma in a non-traditional way. This week, I wanted to invite our Director of Secondary Education and head of our Conestoga Valley Virtual Academy, Dr. Donovan Mann, to discuss the Academy’s new elementary learning center for our CVVA families.

The Conestoga Valley Virtual Academy is a provider of local K-12 cyber education. But, we aren’t your average cyber school. We combine advanced technology with a local touch! Students can take all or some of their classes online while also having access to face-to-face meetings with CV teachers, software and hardware support, and access to CV’s award-winning arts programs, extracurricular activities and Buckskin athletics.

One of our initiatives this year is to emphasize that “local touch” even more with our brand-new CVVA Elementary Learning Center. This learning center, located at Fritz Elementary, is the first of its kind in Lancaster County. The area will be a spot for Virtual Academy students in Kindergarten through sixth grade to come into CV and get help with their coursework, interact with their CVVA peers and participate in fun STEM, social and leadership activities. We have a longtime CV teacher, Jill Kennett, who will be there full time to help students either one-on-one or in a group setting.

The center officially opens to CVVA families on Friday, but we will have opportunities for the general public to come see it and learn more about what CVVA has to offer! Though the center currently is for K-6 students only, we are working to open a second space at the secondary level to accommodate those CVVA students.

These types of opportunities are just a few of the ways that the CVVA stands out amongst its cyber-school peers. If you are interested in finding out more information, please fill out this form or contact me directly at We hope to hear from you!
