The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation held Welcome Back Receptions on Aug. 26 to kick off the 2014-2015 school year. The events were sponsored by The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch. Close to 600 parents attended the receptions which provided CCA parents with the opportunity to speak with CCA administrators, including Principal Karl Mueller, teachers, and Foundation representatives. Representatives from Dollars for Scholars, Grad Nite, Science Olympiad, Robotics,  QUEST, and Envision programs spoke with parents about the many opportunities for involvement in the coming year. CCA Foundation President Amy Caterina spoke to the crowd about the ways in which the Foundation continues to enrich the experiences of every student, every day.

“Donations to the CCA Foundation are used to enhance athletics, arts, and science programs. All of the money that is donated to the Foundation is used right here at CCA.”

Dan Curran, of The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, gave an update on the progress of the much-anticipated project that is currently under construction, with an estimated opening in early 2015.  In addition to Trader Joe’s, a pharmacy, several restaurants, and a gym will all be part of the center.  Curran stressed that “The Village sees CCA as a community partner, and there are plans to incorporate student artwork and performances in our Village Square.”

The Canyon Crest Foundation is a parent-led 501(c) (3) organization providing fantastic opportunities across academics, athletics, and the arts, and creating an environment where students can thrive. Your tax deductible donation to the CCA Foundation is vitally needed to continue our support of these programs. You can donate online at
