Canyon Crest Academy Reviews
Review Canyon Crest Academy
CCA has been an incredible school to attend for these past 4 years of high school. I have been able to get involved with awesome school activities (Like the Improv Team: Comedy Sportz), attend school sponsored events that have helped bond my Senior Class, and have met incredible people who will remain close friends even after high school. I wouldn't change my high school experience for the world. CCA is unique for millions of reasons, but I think a primary reason is simply the fun culture on campus. Students and teachers work together to make school fun and engaging and our incredible staff and administrators all are invested in making the campus community the best it can be. For example, on our principal's birthday last year, ASB hired a mariachi band to follow him around campus for the day! It was a fun and heartwarming day for everyone on campus.
Getting involved in CCA is a fun and easy process on campus. Whether in sports, the arts, cinema, or extracurricular academics, students have a myriad of ways to contribute to the school and be a part of programs. One of the most recognized elements of CCA is our arts programs! We have a lot of support for the visual arts and performing arts and our Conservatory after school program is really popular on campus. Students can audition or apply to be a part of a Conservatory program that fits their discipline and if accepted get to spend hours after school during the week working and growing with peers who have interests in the same areas! The shows and events put on by the Conservatory's are incredible, and other students at CCA are really supportive of the work.
This is an absolutely fantastic school with an amazing faculty and wonderful, passionate, and caring students; I truly could not imagine myself anywhere else. CCA embraces difference; you know that no matter what you do, you will not get looked at strangely (unless you express discriminatory -- sexist, homophobic, or transphobic in particular -- opinions). Unfortunately, as the school is growing and maturing CCA has become more of an "ordinary" high school, losing some of its former artsy/weird/hippie/unique culture. I have been very disappointed by the increasing academic pressure/competition (AP obsession!) among students, which I think has contributed to a loss of personality and tolerance in the school. Overall, however, CCA is still an incredible place to be!
