SIMI VALLEY, Calif., May 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- California Virtual Academies (CAVA), a network of online public charter schools serving thousands of students in kindergarten through 12th grade across the state, honored more than 540 high school graduates during its three 2012 graduation ceremonies.
CAVA offers the award winning K12 curriculum individualized to each student's specific academic needs taught by California-certified teachers. Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds including accelerated learners, students of military families, athletes and performers, and students who were not succeeding in traditional schools.
The ceremonies took place at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse in San Gabriel, CA; Crafton Hills College in Yucaipa, CA and Vacaville Performing Arts Center in Vacaville, CA. Speakers at all three graduations were CAVA alumni who have gone on either to college or successful careers. One of the valedictorians for the class of 2012, Christine Lozano, from Imperial, CA, was awarded a $96,000 scholarship to attend La Tourneau University in Texas in the fall to pursue civil engineering.
"We're proud to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of each of our graduates," said Katrina Abston, Senior Head of School at CAVA. "The graduation ceremonies recognize not only their achievements, but the encouragement and support of their families and teachers."
