SRAR (CVA Seniors ONLY)

SRAR stands for Self-Reported Academic Record. The SRAR allows students to self-report courses and grades that have been completed, or will be attempted (e.g., senior year courses in-progress), for high school credit.

Since accuracy is important, please use an unofficial transcript/grades report as a reference when you complete the SRAR.
