Choosing Canyon Pointe
Why choose Canyon Pointe Academy?
Our slogan says “Small Campus, BIG Opportunities, Life Long Connections.” We take that all three pieces of that slogan very seriously.
We purposely keep our campus and our classes small so that all staff members and students can know each other. We welcome families to spend time on our campus with monthly events like “Pastries for Parents” and lots of volunteer opportunities. We also have quarterly events for families like Movie Day, a Wax Museum, and Stargazing. 4A Days allow for parents and students to celebrate academics, athletics, arts and activities together.
Starting with our all day kindergarten, we focus on encouraging students to Be Kind using a the “Be Kind” curriculum and reinforcing it every day. Our students start their day on our basketball court where they say the Pledge of Allegiance as a school while our oldest students raise the flag. After our older students say the Preamble to the Constitution, we recite the Be Kind Pledge so we can start the day ready to help ourselves and others. On Fridays, we devote our 15 minute assembly to lessons that reinforce a different aspect of the Be Kind Pledge each month. This is just one small way that we endeavor to teach the whole child.
We want our children to be excited and motivated to learn so we encourage teachers to combine tried and true educational structure and methods with a classical flair. At the same time, we want to ensure our students have time to develop their creative and problem solving skills - for example, on the playground using our Big Blocks from Imagination Playground. These Big Blocks encourage cooperative play, problem solving, and communication skills. Combining both traditional methods with innovative techniques ensures that our students leave our school ready to face the rigors of middle and high school.
In short, we want to grow leaders and life long learners. We want our students to make long lasting friendships. We want them to see what they can accomplish academically and through activities beyond the core.
