Academic Goals & Philosophy
The academic mission of Copper Canyon Academy is to promote the development of young women by means of a challenging and varied course of study that prepares them to live as productive and well-adjusted members of society. Copper Canyon Academy integrates middle school and high school academics with emotional growth. Comparable emphasis is placed on a student’s personal development alongside her academic growth. And as a small, nurturing community featuring a structured and safe daily life, the two are seamlessly connected. In this light, the CCA academic program strives for:
- Student success, which, for some of our students may be unprecedented, and the achievement of which bolsters feelings of confidence and pride;
- A sustained love of learning, so that students are inspired to become lifelong learners;
- Critical thinking skills, and not the mere regurgitation of facts, in order to create an enhanced degree of self-awareness and understanding;
- A sense of self-discipline, so that students are better organized, self-sufficient, and focused.
