The Office of Academic Success and Instructional Services (OASIS) helps students develop the skills and confidence necessary to achieve at CVCA, in college, and beyond. Our services include:

  • Organization skills
  • Discovering learning styles
  • Test review
  • Academic support in various subjects
  • Time management
  • Improving study skill techniques
  • Collaboration between staff and families
  • Coordinating and conducting extended time on tests for pre-approved students
  • Standardized test preparation

OASIS support is offered to CVCA students with a previously established Academic Plan or documented learning needs. Students are also assigned to OASIS by the Guidance Office based on academic performance, previous school records, entrance testing, and teacher recommendations. If a student or parent believes OASIS services would be beneficial, they are encouraged to contact Laura Chadima in the OASIS Office at or call 330-929-0575, ext 421.

Middle School

Our aim is to equip CVCA middle school students with the tools necessary to achieve success in our rigorous college-prep high school courses. All middle school students benefit from a guided study hall model where they can use teacher resources to ask questions about their class content and homework.

OASIS is for students who demonstrate a need for additional help in transitioning to middle school due to a previous academic plan. They may receive additional weekly check-ins, including guidance to improve study habits, organization, test-taking skills, and other areas necessary for success at CVCA.

High School

CVCA’s academic teachers collaborate with OASIS to make sure our students are given the tools needed to achieve to their highest potential and reach their goals for high school and beyond.

Our services are for learners hoping to achieve their potential in CVCA’s rigorous college-prep courses, as well as for students who demonstrate a need for additional support.

Students assigned to OASIS for academic reasons receive an individualized plan. We tailor these plans to individual student needs and work to develop proficiency individually or in a small group guided by an OASIS teacher.

Academic Plans

Upon request, parents may work with the OASIS Director on transitioning an IEP or 504 Plan to the services CVCA can provide using an Academic Plan. Proper documentation must be shared at the time of applying for admission to CVCA. If you suspect your child has a learning issue or if your child experiences an extended illness or concussion that needs addressed academically, please contact Laura Chadima at 330-929-0575, ext. 421.
