“Those who are excellent at their work have learned to comfortably coexist with failure. The excellent fail more often than the mediocre. They begin more. They attempt more. They attack more. Mastery lives quietly atop a mountain of mistakes.”

― Eric Greitens, Resilience 

Principal and Title IX Coordinator, Amanda Stilianou

I am excited to help lead our students and faculty at Clay Virtual Academy to be the best they can be. CVA aims to be a leader in K-12 virtual education by providing rich curriculum content paired with high levels of teacher-student interaction, enrichment activities, personalized growth and success plans, live virtual sessions, and in person support. 

Clay Virtual Academy is proud to serve the students and families of Clay County by providing virtual learning options for full time CVA students, part time/blended students, and home education families. Our teachers are dedicated to the success of our students as we focus on mastery learning and help prepare them for their futures. Our goal is to provide an innovative, online learning experience that allows each student to dream, achieve, and soar anywhere, anytime, on any path. 

Family support is critical to our students’ success in school, especially virtual school. Each learning coach is a valuable part of the student’s learning team and the learning coach works in partnership with the teachers, school counselor, and administration to ensure the student has the right skills, organization, dedication, and motivation for success in online learning. Thank you for your efforts at home to ensure CVA students have all the tools needed in their learning environment to be successful learners. 

Please reach out to your teacher, counselor, administrator, or other staff member for assistance. We are so happy you are a part of our Viper family and we thank you for choosing CVA!
