Canyonville Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities accorded or made available to Canyonville Academy students.  We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admissions procedures, tuition assistance awards, athletic or other school-administered programs.  We do, however, reserve the right to deny admission to any individual who cannot benefit from enrollment based on past academic achievement, conduct history, disqualifying health issue, or whose personal or family beliefs and/or lifestyle is not in harmony with the stated philosophy and statement of faith of Canyonville Academy.

Canyonville Academy, as a private institution, reserves the privilege of setting and maintaining its own standards for student conduct, dress, and scholarship. Admission to Canyonville Academy is a privilege and not a right.  Therefore, Canyonville Academy maintains the right to admit and retain only those students who are in harmony with the school’s standards.

Further, Canyonville Academy reserves the right, without refunding tuition, to dismiss any student who does not respect its standards or provide reasonable cooperation in the educational process, or whose conduct is considered detrimental to the best interest of Canyonville Academy and its mission.  Canyonville Academy reserves the right to deny any student admission at any time for any reason and is not obligated to disclose the reasons for the denial.

Transfer Credits and Grade Placement

Students entering 9th grade must provide official transcripts of their 8th grade or 8th grade equivalent completion. 

Students entering 10th – 12th grades must provide official transcripts for their high school/high school equivalent course work for consideration of transfer credit and appropriate grade level placement. 

  • Canyonville Academy reviews transcripts from hundreds of schools from dozens of countries.
  • Each student’s record is reviewed individually for the most fair and consistent award of transfer credit. However, students attending different schools from the same country may receive different credit based on the curriculum used at each school (i.e., students from the same country may be awarded differing transfer credits depending on the course descriptions and learning outcomes for their courses).
  • Canyonville Academy’s registrar is the school’s arbiter on transfer credits to include grades, appropriate credit award, waivers, etc.
  • Grade placement for non-native English speakers is based on transfer credit and Canyonville Academy placement testing (English and mathematics).
