Each year the students who take Honors Business Math class, go to Harry and David’s in Medford to experience manufacturing, production, packaging, and warehouse procedures, which are multiple chapters on paper come to life. At the end of the factory tour, they return to the retail store to taste samples and purchase some of the products they’ve seen in production during the tour.
It is important for students to apply what they learn in the classroom to real life experiences. This field trip allows the students to begin understanding the importance of business math applications from pay incentives on the packing line to driving a forklift in the warehouse, or even designing special product packaging to the speed of folding the shipping boxes. The overall experience stimulates the imagination and encourages new possibilities for the future of these business math students.

Canyonville Christian Academy was named prominently in a January 23, 2013 Wall Street Journal story on international students* in U.S. high school. The WSJ is the number-one selling newspaper in America.
The large page-three feature story indicated that in many countries both private and parochial American high schools are seen as an excellent pathway for admissions to U.S. colleges.

Students from SEO/Internet Marketing are taught the nuances of the internet, changes that happen with Google Algorithms, Social Media channels to use, why use them, when to use them and then they put it all together and go out into the community and help local businesses create a web-presence.
Last year the class created six websites for businesses in the Canyonville area, this year, the class tackled a large website as a group project – Myrtle Creek Golf Course.
To start this project out, this largely diverse class first looked at the current website, they then reviewed the changes they could make and improve, compared what other golf courses offered all over the world and they then selected several different new looks for the Myrtle Creek Golf Course.
With an action plan in place, they invited the superintendent of the golf course to interview him and learn more about the needs of Myrtle Creek Golf Course. Following this meeting, and a trip to tour the golf course, the real work began: ReDesigning and implementation of the new design.
Myrtle Creek Golf Course - Before
Myrtle Creek Golf Course - After
Within 5 days, the new golf course website was up and running with all Social Media strategies and vehicles in place, backlinks started, multiple visuals available and a completely new look!

What I’m talking about is the senior class of 2011 here at Canyonville Christian Academy. It seems just like yesterday that students were arriving from various parts of the world to start their final year in high school. This boarding school was full of expecting students deciding on classes to take for their senior year. Fast forward to Saturday May 28th…
Twenty-nine students with caps and gowns mixed with excitement, sadness, joy and a new realization that all their hard work has now payed off. Twenty-nine students walking up to the stage one at a time to receive their diploma’s in front of family and friends.
These students are filled with emotions knowing that for some, it’s the last time to see their friends, the last time to see their teachers, deans, the last few hours before leaving the sanctuary of their dorm rooms…the last time walking around the campus, hanging around the student center, chilling in the PX, walking around east campus or even going to Ken’s Sidewalk Cafe. It’s time to spread their wings and fly.

Canyonville Christian Academy’s Senior Class!
Canyonville Christian Academy’s president Shawn Hennessy encouraged seniors as he spoke on the butterfly effect which is where a small change at one place in a nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state.
With almost all the teachers and staff attending this final Sunday Chapel here at CCA, there was a mixture of excitement and sadness. This is the time of year that everyone starts out anticipating when school starts in the fall; but after 9 months you bond as a family while boarding. School here at CCA becomes like one giant family that studies together, plays together, works together and achieves goals together. As this time of year does arrive, everyone’s excitement becomes mixed with the realization that some will not see each other again. Students realize that Canyonville Christian Academy bonded them with friends from all over the world, but also with teachers and staff that have encouraged them, prayed with them, watched over them, helped them, corrected them, mentored them and are now preparing to send these students off with much care and love…
