Benefits Canyon Crest Academy
The mission of the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is to partner with students, parents and staff to facilitate community involvement and provide financial support for Canyon Crest Academy educational programs and priorities.
A Brief History
Since 2004, when Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) opened its doors to 364 freshman students in portable buildings in a parking lot, the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation has been working to raise funds to support the extraordinary range of programs and exceptional quality of education that have become the hallmarks of CCA. These efforts have helped make CCA of one of San Diego’s top-ranked high schools.
The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is a nonprofit parent volunteer organization dedicated to realizing CCA’s educational programs and priorities through financial, volunteer and community support. Our primary objective is fundraising. The Foundation raises the funds necessary to support the spending priorities determined by CCA’s principal and staff, mostly through parent contributions. We also collaborate with students, parents, staff and our local community to assist CCA with its volunteer needs.
Why A Foundation?
Although CCA receives funds from the State of California, these monies are insufficient to pay for the exemplary classroom instruction and numerous special programs that are the reason so many students choose to attend CCA. The gap between public funds and CCA’s actual needs seems to expand each year. The Foundation’s role is to raise funds to bridge that gap to support the expansive curriculum and enriching educational and athletic programs available to CCA students.
Where Does the Money Go?
The donations raised by the CCA Foundation fund arts, engineering, technology, the sciences and humanities, college and career counseling, and athletic programs. Every student at CCA benefits in some way from the generous donations made by CCA families to the Foundation.
A few examples of what Foundation donations have paid for include:
- books and materials for the media center
- classroom computers and software
- the world language lab
- coaching stipends and assistant coach fees
- sports uniforms and equipment
- guest teaching artists for Envision day classes and Conservatory
- construction expenses
- Challenge Day
- pool rental, sheet music, costumes
- lab equipment and supplies, and much, much more.
In short, the Foundation raises the money that helps make the difference between an ordinary high school experience and the exceptional educational opportunities available to all Canyon Crest Academy students.
