*** Just a note regarding books with Common Core titles. You may see books with the words “Common Core” in the title. However, CVCS is not a Common Core school and we will not be teaching federally mandated Common Core standards. As a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and an ACSI and WASC accredited school, we focus on providing a rigorous and exemplary academic experience by moving above and beyond both the California State and the Common Core Standards.

Math CoursesMr. Prouty tests all students and places them in the appropriate math course. Many students may already know which math course they are heading into and are ready to buy the textbook. If you are unclear as to which class your child is taking, you can either wait until your schedule is released or email Mrs. Rutz at


High School

Students in 9th through 12th grade may have a mix of digital textbooks and traditional hard copy/print textbooks depending on the courses they are enrolled. For those teachers using digital/ebooks for a course, the students will be required to purchase them through Edtech, and this information will be provided later in the summer. Many teachers will be using traditional hard/print copy books for their classes, and students may purchase the books from any bookseller. All book titles, authors, ISBN's, etc. will be released in July. 

Please contact Mrs. Fournier at for further information on textbook selection.
