The quality of our students education is paramount to us at the RVA. That is why, due to an unprecedented interest this year, the RVA has has reached full capacity in both grades PreK - 8 regular and special education* and we have closed new enrollments effective 12:00 p.m. (noon) Tuesday, December 18th. All PreK-8 families in the process of enrollment at the closure deadline, will still be allowed to enter the school.
All further inquiries will need to be placed on a numbered waiting list. If interested add your name to the waitlist by clicking the button above. We will inform all interested parents that we may have additional openings in the future should we be able to find suitable additional staff and/or not all anticipated enrollments follow through.
If space becomes available, applicants will be selected in the order in which they chronologically expressed interest to attend with preference given to siblings, then resident district consortium families (non-open enrolled) in accordance to the law.
*If your child’s only needs are related services, such as Speech and Language or other therapies, we can still consider your child’s enrollment application.
