CCA Foundation celebrates Canyon Crest Academy’s 10th Anniversary on Back-to -School Night Sept. 17


Canyon Crest Academy parents are invited to Back-to-School Night which begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, (5:30 p.m. for freshmen parents). Principal Karl Mueller will open the evening with a welcome presentation.

San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt and members of the school board will also be in attendance. Following the welcome, parents will attend each of their children’s classes. (Detailed information will be provided on the CCA website and via email communication.)

During the evening, a video produced by CCA-TV and Cinema student Jason Phillips will be shown. The video celebrates the many accomplishments of CCA during its 10-year history. Highlights include multiple awards across a variety of disciplines, CIF championships, a Newsweek ranking of 78th in the country and 6th in California and consistently high API scores and AP pass rates. Most recently, CCA achieved a new all time high API score of 921.

“It is one of the great pleasures of my job to work with such bright, hardworking students, generous parents and talented teachers,” said Executive Director Joanne Couvrette. “Jason Phillips, the CCA-TV and CCA Cinema team who produced this wonderful video for Back to School Night, are wonderful examples of the talent of our students.”

CCA is proud to offer its students an outstanding education that includes enrichment opportunities in academics, athletics and the arts despite receiving the lowest per student funding of the six high school districts in San Diego County. Many of these educational enrichment opportunities are funded by the CCA Foundation, including CCA-TV and CCA Cinema. The CCA Foundation staff and board members will host a tent at Back to School Night with information about its programs and upcoming events, and will be available to take parent donations. Parents are encouraged to bring their donations to the CCA Foundation tent on Back to School Night.

The Canyon Crest Academy 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. To learn more about the CCA Foundation, please visit
