Canyon Heights Academy was founded in July of 2000 with the intent to bring the pedagogy of Integral Formation to the Santa Clara valley. The school opened its doors in August of 2000 in a subleased portion of a former public school in Mountain View with 6 students in grades K to 3rd, expanding to to 5th grade and ending 2001 with 12 students. In 2001, Canyon Heights opened the preschool program and saw enrollment grow to over 35 students. In 2002, Canyon Heights relocated to a portion of the former Blackford High School campus in San Jose and received initial recognition as a Catholic school from the Diocese of San Jose in 2003. In 2004, Canyon Heights Academy made its final move to our current campus, the former Hazelwood School in Campbell. In that same year, Canyon Heights received full accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and full recognition as a private Catholic school by the Diocese of San Jose. In 2006, with enough enrollment to form two sections of Kindergarten, we began our program of gender specific education. Since relocating to the permanent campus, Canyon Heights as seen enrollment increase 30% to 50% a year to nearly 200 students, completed extensive renovations to the Chapel building and is currently completing the campus master plan that will see the construction of a gymnasium and lab facilities on the campus.
