Entry into some programs at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center is very competitive. Please read the letter below to see the exact criteria. Remember that absences and tardies begin to count the first day of your 10th grade year -- August 15, 2016.
Dear Sophomore Parent(s)/Guardian:
As your child enters their 10th grade year they will have the
opportunity to explore the exciting opportunities that are available through
the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center. There are a wide range of programs available
to our students as juniors; most of which require a two year commitment.
We are informing families about the application and selection process now as it
can be competitive to get into certain programs. It is important for students
to seriously consider career aspirations, personal interests, and abilities in
order to make an informed choice. All schools who partner with CVCC get a
limited number of spots in each of the programs. Our most popular programs fill
up quickly. In order to be as fair as possible, and help students make an
educated decision about making a commitment to attend CVCC, Garfield Heights
High School uses the below guidelines to prioritize students, as well as a
first come, first serve basis.
Attendance (10th grade only) 0-5
absences = 10 points
6-10 absences = 5 points
More than 10 = 0 points
Tardies (10th grade only) 0-5
tardies = 10 points
6-10 tardies = 5 points
More than 10 = 0 points
Attend Student and Parent Information
Night December 3rd or December 8th.
Hand in Field Trip Permission Form by December
9th = 5 points
Have Electronic Application submitted

Attendance at January 7th
or 8th field trip = 10 points
GPA (9th grade only) Above 3.0 = 10 points
2.99-2.0 = 5 points
1.99 or below = 0 points
Students will be admitted to programs based on the points they
earn. In the event that two students are
tied for an open spot, overall grade point average and teacher recommendations
will be considered.
CVCC also has a Priority vs. Regular admission status. Priority
admission students have 7 credits by the completion of grade 10. Of those 7
credits 2 must be in math and 2 must be in English. Priority students are given
priority for enrollment over regular status students.
Should you have any questions regarding our point system, or the time line for
applying, please call your child’s counselor at 216-662-2800.
