School Mission:


The mission of Carlsbad Village Academy is to empower students to take charge of their educational experiences in an environment that stimulates intellectual curiosity and empower students in the process of learning so that they may responsibly participate in a diverse society.




In shared partnership with parents and students the staff at Carlsbad Village Academy envision an alternative learning environment that promotes high academic achievement, personal and social responsibility and empowers students to meet the challenges of a changing world.  

We at CVA believe all graduates should know, understand and be able to do what’s expected as a graduate from Carlsbad Village Academy.   We “DARE” our students to achieve:



D – Demonstrate effective communication

  • Possess reading and comprehension skills and are able to effectively communicate ideas, opinions and information in writing.

  • Demonstrate proficiency in public and interpersonal communication skills, including speaking and listening.


A – Act as a productive member of your community

  • Demonstrate a concern for others through community service and multicultural understanding that allows them to function effectively in a diverse society


R – Respect yourself and others

  • Act honestly, ethically and responsibly      


E – Exceed learning standards by embracing new opportunities

  • Apply their learning to real-life situations

  • Develop math, logic, and reasoning skills and are able to apply those skills in a variety of contexts

  • Engage in critical analysis and creative thinking when presented with tasks.

Confidential Student Data

Dear CUSD Parents,


A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all school districts across the state, including Carlsbad Unified School District.


In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the CDE alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleged the CDE failed to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law. The CDE denies these allegations and is continuing to defend the litigation.


No local school districts were involved in the lawsuit and or are the subject of any of the suit’s allegations.

Nonetheless, as part of this lawsuit, CDE has been required by the court to release all data it has collected on general and special education students since Jan.1, 2008.


For more information regarding this case, as well as how to file an “Objection to Disclosure of Student Information and Records” visit the CDE website at: Parents have until April 1, 2016 to complete and submit this “Objection to Disclosure” form.


You may also contact the California Department of Education directly at (916) 319-0800 for more information concerning this legal requirement.
