Dear CCA Families,
Opportunities. Isn't that what every one of us wants for our children?
Here at Canyon Crest Academy every child has an opportunity. Whether it is an opportunity to be an athlete, actor, singer, dancer, musician, photographer, cinematographer, researcher or humanities scholar, your child has the opportunity to explore and shine in any of these areas. No matter your child's skill or interest, the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is committed to helping your child -- our students -- explore these opportunities.
This year marks 10th year anniversary of CCA and we are excited about our plans to highlight the great achievements of our many students. Without their accomplishments CCA would not be where it is today -- achieving the highest API scores in San Diego County, winning a Grammy Signature School Enterprise Award and being ranked as the 78th best high school in the nation in 2013 according to Newsweek Magazine. Look for further details of CCA's 10th year celebrations in our upcoming commemorative 10th year anniversary calendar and mark May 16 - 18th, 2014 for a weekend long special event.
Of course, without the generous donations from our parents to the CCA Foundation, our children would not have these tremendous opportunities. Because of you, our Foundation is able to provide our students with financial support to achieve these great accomplishments in academics, the arts, and athletics.
CCA's 2013 - 2014 budget is not unlike those of the past few years. Our school continues to face ongoing challenges of a significant gap between public funds available and funds needed to keep our programs and school at the very top. Therefore, we turn to you, returning or new CCA parents, to help us bridge that gap - with donations to the CCA Foundation to meet our Academics, Athletics, and Envision Arts program needs.
Our financial goal for the 2013 - 2014 academic year is to raise $900,000 dollars to bridge this gap between public funding and CCA's needs. This $900,000 dollars will enable our school to continue to offer the exceptional educational opportunities that are the hallmark of CCA. Our goal is reached family by family but it applies to ALL students. Whether we are funding guest artists, lab materials for our unique Quest program, new computers or equipment for our technology classes, coaches, counseling resources, graduation and programs like Challenge Day, each and every student at CCA is benefited.
So, I ask for your donation NOW as we begin the school year so we can ensure that all our programs are funded throughout the year. Without your contributions these programs would not exist! It is easy to donate directly to your child's specific interest or to our general Raven's Fund. There are many ways to give including monthly installments, credit card, or check. Just visit our online donations page or pay by check or credit card through our Foundation office.
Won't you help us continue to give these opportunities to all our children?
