CHA Parents Association (CHAPA)

Canyon Heights Academy parents are not required to volunteer; however parent involvement is a key element to building both our parent community and our school. The spirit and sense of community that pervades Canyon Heights comes from our parents’ willingness to support Canyon Heights activities.
