Champlain Valley Union High School

Champlain Valley Union High School is a high school located in the town of Hinesburg, Vermont, United States. The school serves the towns of Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne, St. George, and Williston. The enrollment for the 2007-2008 school year was 1,388 students with 113 faculty. The school is locally known as CVU.

CVU was established in 1964 to serve the Chittenden County towns outside of Burlington. CVU is currently the largest high school by enrollment in the state of Vermont.


Within the property of CVU, there is a baseball field, a softball field, a field hockey field, a football field, a track, and three soccer fields. During the spring, the field hockey and soccer fields are used for lacrosse.


The school mascot is the Redhawk, having changed its name from Crusaders in 2005 because many had found the former name to be offensive.[2] The school's athletic colors are red and white.

CVU competes in Division 1 brackets for all sports. CVU's chief athletic rivals are nearby South Burlington High School, Essex High School, and Mount Mansfield Union High School.

The school competes in the following sports:
