Canyon Crest Academy Foundation Gala in Carmel Valley features student partnerships

The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation’s mission of enriching the lives of every student, every day comes to life in this year’s gala to be held on campus, May 16 at 5:30 p.m. Over the past 10 years, CCA’s hallmark of success has been its willingness to embrace change, push boundaries and shatter paradigms in order to reach record-breaking and award-winning academic, athletic and artistic goals.

In the spirit of CCA, the students, staff and faculty are joining with the CCA Foundation to host a different kind of gala. The Gala Opening Night of “Across the Universe: A Tribute to the Beatles” will be a musical, theatrical and artistic extravaganza featuring songs from the Beatles. This live performance features all seven Envision disciplines of dance, theater, vocal and instrumental music, cinema, visual arts and humanities.

Moreover, students are involved in all levels of planning: the visual arts students are creating a mural which depicts ravens in flight and will be housed on the library wall; humanities students are doing research so they can provide lots of fun information about the Beatles and CCA; and ROP Business students, who run CCA’s own cafe, the Nest, will plan and prepare a portion of the menu while using some items from the CCA garden.
