A Christ-centered Private Catholic School

Canyon Heights Academy combines academic excellence with a foundation in Catholic Christian virtues. We serve Montessori preschool through middle school students in San Jose with an independent, demanding, coordinated and systematic curriculum across academic disciplines. Students will develop a genuinely organic and coherent view of their faith, humanity and the world around them.

A focus on each student’s human formation distinguishes Canyon Heights Academy from other schools. Regular Mass attendance, as well as programs in virtue, arts, athletics, leadership and public speaking, allow students to practice the responsible use of their freedoms and growth in virtue to become masters of themselves and their own formation.

Please explore our Academic and Formation programs and learn why Canyon Heights Academy is the best option for preparing your child to transform society into one of justice and love.

Testimonials from our Parents

“CHA has a wonderful and diverse community and the smaller class sizes and focus on integral formation help the school stand out from the rest. 2 of our children have graduated from CHA and one child is currently enrolled. Both of our graduates have excelled in high school and college thanks to CHA.”


Testimonials from our Parents

“An amazing community almost like a second home for children. I have nothing but good things to say about the school. It’s a community oriented school so if you have time, you can get involved as much as you like and there are lots of events for parents at the school. Parents are extremely helpful and a very welcoming community. Virtues are given a lot of importance in the development of children and they learn what’s right and wrong very early on.”
