Canyonville Christian Academy began operations in 1924 – 88 years ago. This means that we have a great legacy of experience and traditions. Schools that don’t learn, adapt, and have high standards often do not survive. Our history is evidence of our durability.
CCA, of course, offers classes in math, science, history, languages and literature. But more importantly, we help students learn character, values, integrity, and the worth of every individual. We believe there is no higher calling than this.
Why does CCA cost less than many schools that have strong international student programs? Since its founding, CCA has been a distinctly Christian and affordable school. Many of our teachers and staff come not for the pay, but because they believe in the mission of the school. Because the school has very little debt and our facilities and buildings were largely paid for by supporters and alumni of the school, we are able to pass on the savings to our students and their families in the form of very reasonable tuition.
Over the past decade, CCA graduates have gone on to many fine colleges in the U.S. and other countries. We offer a full range of testing services for college admissions and we offer college counseling to help our students through the admissions process.
At our school there is one dean (dorm parent) for every 20 students and 1 teacher for every 12 students. Our goal is that every young person that comes to us receives a high level of personal attention which is sometimes difficult to achieve in larger schools.
Students have come to CCA from over 50 countries. Understanding and interacting with people from all over the world is a valuable experience. In the world of the internet, international business and with English the dominant language of commerce — CCA can help to provide a strong foundation for success.
Not only does CCA have the advantages of being away from the congestion, noise and dangers of some big-city locations – the school is within three blocks or less of a bank, post office, market, restaurants, pharmacy, and a medical clinic.
When you look out in any direction from the school’s campus, you will see beautiful mountains covered with evergreen trees. A lovely stream flows through the middle of campus.
Southern Oregon has a very comfortable climate. In a normal year there will be two or three days of light snow and perhaps 30 inches (80 centimeters) of rain.
Although each student and family is unique, and we certainly want them to do what is best for their individual situation, a substantial majority of students return for multiple years at CCA and recommend us to their friends and family as well.
CCA makes no apology for being a distinctly Christian school. In part, this means that one of our primary goals is to maintain a high standard of conduct on our campus. Parents and students who choose CCA can be assured that we will maintain a high level of moral conduct among our students. Drugs, alcohol and immorality are not permitted, and hazing or bullying is not tolerated.
Time spent at a boarding high school is a valuable preparation for college life. Students will learn how to be self-motivated, to budget their time and money, to make good choices on their own, even to keep a clean room and to do their own laundery. Time spent at CCA prepares students for college in ways that go far beyond what they can learn in textbooks.
We take great pride in our list of high-achieving graduates from our school:
