Our Beliefs

Canyon Heights Academy believes the process of educating a child can be compared to a tree growing and bearing good fruit. We are rooted in our beliefs, and from those beliefs, CHA creates academic and campus programs, traditions and procedures which foster the development of each child from 18 months through preschool and through Grade 8. We are led by six root beliefs that guide our mission.

GOD IN ALL THINGS. Christ is the Teacher. Alongside him, we recognize God’s presence in creation, in ourselves, in one another, and in daily life. Most of all, we encounter God in the Sacraments.

EVERY CHILD IS A GIFT FROM GOD. -“Father, they are your gift to me.” Jn 17:24. Every member of our school community is endowed with talents to be discovered, encouraged, and shared, for the sake of achieving our purpose alongside others.

INTEGRAL FORMATION IS THE CORE OF FUTURE LEADERS. Catholic-­Christian leadership is paramount to the future of Silicon Valley. In a successful leader, the intellect, heart, and body work and grow together as one, nourished and rooted in absolute values and timeless truths.

EDUCATION IS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN TEACHERS, PARENTS AND PRIESTS. Parents are the primary educators of their children. Our school is a partnership to help parents and teachers achieve their best in the integral formation of their children.

CATHOLIC VALUES GUIDE OUR LIVES. Faith, conscience, and religious practice are core to our humanity, not subjects separate from everything else we do. We are both unapologetically Catholic and unequivocally loving of all people.

WE ARE A COMMUNITY OF GOD’S CHILDREN. We are never done growing. Humility allows us to grow together and is essential achieve great things. Humility is not to think less of yourself, it is to think less about yourself, and more about others.
