Carmel Valley High School is a small, rural, 40-student maximum continuation high school accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. In addition, many courses meet requirements for admissions to University of California.

    Individual Learning Plans are developed for each student, and each lesson is given at that student's level of ability. This individual attention allows students to progress at their own rate. In addition, the personal and social needs of students are addressed, which creates and sustains a supportive environment that allows students to learn.

    Parents work with staff to ensure pupil success. They become involved in planning the student's individual learning plan, receive detailed progress reports, and are informed of any important achievement of their child.

    CVHS has five credentialed teachers. Teachers instruct in their areas of background, training, interest, and strength. Every instructor is committed to helping every student succeed.


    Students are required to attend Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday  from 8:30 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. and 8:30a.m. to 12 noon on Thursdays. Students are expected to arrive on time.
