dorm life at Canyonville Christian Academy, study time, bible study on Sunday nights, what do girls do?

Private school girls who live in the dorm gather together to learn how to build their character and community with one another. 

Every Sunday evening the girls at boarding school Canyonville Christian Academy, meet together with their deans and have a Bible Study. This Bible study addresses many of the questions and problems young girls face at this time in their lives.

The book we used this week is called “Head to Soul Makeover”, which seeks to teach girls to accept themselves for who they are by showing them their great worth.

Canyonville Oregon has had another round of winter weather!

canyonville christian academy, private boarding school, high school, boarding schools, private schools, cca, With snow, then temperatures dropping below freezing (16 degrees or -8C), students at Canyonville Christian Academy have bundled up and enjoyed the snow before it all melted.  As the temperatures dropped, students chose to stay inside either the dorms, the gym, the auditorium or the PX.

Then there were some brave ones… that went out into the cold and tried playing tennis for a bit…brrrrrrrr!
