At the RVA, We Don’t Just Educate, We Foster Deep Friendships
Throughout the year, the RVA organizes group events that encourage students to gather with other RVA students to share interests, hone in their skills, discover new talents, and make new friends. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this small offering of photos speaks volumes.
