Kevin Holman, Executive Director
Welcome to Canyon Heights Academy, a truly remarkable school located in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Canyon Heights Academy was founded 22 years ago as an authentically Catholic school focused on the formation of a community of students, teachers, parents, and alumni. We educate students starting in Early Montessori up through 8th grade to lead lives rooted in Christ and to be his apostles. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education as we seek to educate the whole child and accompany him or her in their personal development within four dimensions: intellectual, human, spiritual, and apostolic. This is what we define as “integral formation” and it is the foundation on which we approach your child. Recognizing parents as the primary educators of their children, we look to support you in your child’s personal formation through the Catholic faith.
Canyon Heights Academy is a vibrant and thriving community that goes well beyond normal school hours. Our families enjoy fellowship through activities such as fall festival, class socials, themed family nights, international day, and the celebration of the sacraments. We seek to know each child and parent by name and as special in the eyes of God. This motivates us to prepare our students as Christian leaders who love the truth and develop their talents to transform society as God intended.
Through the authenticity of our Catholic identity to love one another, we welcome families from other faiths to be part of our community and be part of our joy. I invite you to visit our school, meet many of the special members of our community and understand for yourself what makes the Canyon Heights Academy community so unique.
I look forward to meeting you,
Estela Zeik, Principal
Welcome to Canyon Heights Academy and thank you for taking the time to explore our school website. If you are looking for a solid Catholic Education of Excellence and a community that can support you in the beautiful journey of educating your child Canyon Heights is the right place for you.
At CHA our faculty and administration form the Christian leaders of tomorrow with the unique methodology of Integral Formation. Everything that we do at Canyon Heights Academy educates the mind, the heart and the soul of our students in the four dimensions of the human person:
Intellectual Formation: Our unique and demanding curriculum ensures that our students flourish as lifelong learners and critical thinkers. They learn that truth is one, is knowable, and is the foundation and purpose of all learning.
Human Formation: We believe that genuine formation is founded on the Christian understanding of the human person; therefore, through practice of the responsible use of their freedom and growth in virtue our students become mature masters of themselves and their own formation.
Spiritual Formation We believe that spiritual formation is achieved through an atmosphere that fosters a personal relationship with Christ, rooted in the experience of his love and the sacraments with the awareness of his will, which brings joy and the desire to become like him and be his apostles.
Apostolic Formation We believe that apostolic formation is the expression of a personal love for Christ and the desire to collaborate in His mission by actively responding to the spiritual, material and social needs within the students’ reach to transform society into one of justice and love.
Please come and visit us. I can’t wait to meet you and show you our school!
