Kindergarten Enrichment

Canyon Prep Academy offers an paid extended day Kindergarten experience called Kindergarten Enrichment. Students that enroll in this program will attend a regular Kindergarten class in the morning, and the K Enrichment class in the afternoon. The K Enrichment class is taught by Kristilin Shepherd, and there is a full time aide to assist. Maximum enrollment is 20 students.

Canyon Rim Academy Kindergarten classes use "Core Knowledge" curriculum, and the Canyon Prep Academy K Enrichment class also uses the "Core Knowledge Sequence" to supplement and enrich the curriculum being taught. 

Due to a high demand for K Enrichment, applicants will apply in a lottery.  During the Spring, applications will be emailed to families that are registered for 2019 - 2020 Kindergarten at Canyon Rim Academy.  A deadline will be given for those desiring to apply, and all applications will be lotterized.  Applications that are turned in after the due date and time will not be considered for the lottery.  The first 20 applications pulled in the lottery process will be invited to attend the Enrichment program, and all others will be notified that their student is on a waiting list - also generated in the lottery process. Upon notification to those students being admitted into the program, parents will pay a registration fee of $35 to secure their enrollment.
