Student, California Virtual Academy at San Mateo, Class of 2016,
California Virtual Academy, CAVA for short, is an online school. There's an inexhaustible variety of students and faculty alike. In this regard, there is no "typical" student. However,I supposed I could say that we are all attending school because we want to get ahead faster and on our own terms. Only people that are self-motivated and strong-willed should attend CAVA. They need to be able to be responsible for learning the material on their own and staying committed to attending online sessions. Contrary to what people tend to believe, online school is just as hard, if not harder, than a regular brick-and-mortar school.
