Copper Canyon and Desert Pointe Academies


Copper Canyon Academy Educational Program

The curriculum at Copper Canyon Academy meets or exceeds state standards and includes all of the core subject requirements along with special interest classes.  Increased focus on the fundamentals of reading, math, and writing provide each student with the opportunity to learn and practice these vital skills on a consistent basis.  Specific curriculum utilized include HSP math, Houghton Mifflin reading, the Write Source, and Pearson/Prentice Hall science. 

Students participate in “specials” classes on a daily basis, rotating between subject areas to increase their exposure to a variety of topics.  These classes include health and physical education, character education & music.

Through our Response to Intervention (RTI) program, additional support is available from the school's Literacy Specialist for students identified as struggling in reading.  Many teachers also offer before and after school tutoring as arranged with the parent.
