2020 – wow, what a year as it now rolls in to affecting 2 separate school years.

Different does not mean bad, it means we need to adapt and move forward with a mindset that ensures that our students will continue to receive an excellent education in a safe and caring environment. You may recall me frequently mention that two of the most important components of Aspen View Academy are culture and climate. Whether you choose to participate with in-person learning or eLearning please know that the entire AVA staff will continue with the rigor and high expectations that you would expect.
