Canyon Creek 21st Century Learning Program

In 2008 Canyon Creek Christian Academy embarked on our 21st Century Learning Program.  Through the use of technology and our excellent staff we have begun implementation of the framework illustrated above.  Our intent is to utilize the best technologies and learning methodologies and leverage the framework provided by "The Partership for 21st Century Learning" to ensure that our students are ready as they confront our changing world.  Although we continue to evaluate and evolve each and every element of our strategy and approach, the elements described below are believed to be the critical systems necessary to ensure 21st century readiness for every student. We are actively reviewing and integrating twenty-first century standards, assessments, curriculum, instruction, professional development and learning environments to provide a support system that produces 21st century outcomes for Canyon Creek’s students.
