Jessica has one kiddo attending CVA. The small class sizes, small community feel, and commitment of the teachers and staff have allowed her son to simply thrive at CVA.

What better place to see this come to fruition than Carbon Valley Academy. Jessica is excited to work with the entire CVA community to upholding the vision & mission of the organization and lead the school into its next chapter.
