There are many exciting opportunities available at CVGS, and we are proud of our programs, our students, and all that our students accomplish while they are with us.  Students at CVGS conduct original research projects, use sophisticated equipment and software, participate in an award winning internship program, and pursue a rigorous academic curriculum.  Along with the curricular challenges and unique experiences of the CVGS program, academically talented and highly motivated students from ten high schools attend CVGS and work and learn together, forming a network of friendships that otherwise would not exist.
