CCHS Mission Statement

“ALL Canon City High School students will have opportunities to explore career pathways of interest while gaining skills needed to be successful in any life endeavor, and while enjoying many traditional high school experiences valued by students and the greater community.”

Principal's Corner

Salute to the class of 2020!  Your’s will be a fantastic year!  In addition to working through our new calendar and school start times, we have numerous new courses being offered and a brand new technology classroom located to the school’s immediate west.  Additionally, the high school welcomes 17 new staff members, all hired with a vision of experiential and student-centric learning.

Social-Emotional Wellbeing dominates our school culture this year with several assemblies scheduled to help students overcome the trials of being a teenager in an ever-increasing society of stress.  We will also put our 60 Link Crew Leaders through a full semester of classroom training to take full care of the freshman transition. If you are the parent of a freshman, ask you student about Tiger Pride Link Crew.

In a world where the only constant is change, and knowing that our students will face change at an even more rapid pace, CCHS is dedicated to preparing EVERY student for a successful career.  The class of 2021 will begin working on their Capstone projects (100% required for all students from this class forward). Our Professional and Internship program will see more than 200 students accomplish work-place internships for credit.  Our TOP program will continue to provide a safe and engaging space for those students who need a non-traditional environment. Our Pathways in Technology Early College High School (PTECH) program will offer college courses and internships in several career fields.  Finally, our Portrait of a Graduate effort will ensure that students learn the personal traits and skills to be successful.
