From the Executive Director

Welcome to Canyon Heights Academy! Consistently recognized as one of the best private schools in San Jose, California, we provide preschool, elementary and middle school students with education that is grounded in Catholic faith and academic excellence.

Canyon Heights Academy was founded in 2000 as an authentically Catholic school focused on forming 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 in his or her 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 build our educational philosophy. 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,

Kevin Holman
Executive Director
