A Brighter Opportunity

Canton College Preparatory School is a true community school that is housed in the heart of downtown Canton. As members of a community that was formerly known for manufacturing, the resilient citizens of Canton have set the stage for a blossoming service industry that centers upon finance, health care, and education. Our school is poised to prepare scholars to thrive in Canton’s burgeoning economy by providing an exceptional educational option.

Investing in Service Learning

Canton College Preparatory School is a new addition to the I CAN SCHOOLS network, and invests in service learning that enables our scholars to experience the reward that is found in giving. While service learning projects begin within our neighborhood with community clean up days, & contributions to elderly care facilities, they expand across the ocean as our students participate in a yearlong international service project that allows them to meet the needs of children & families outside of the United States of America.

Enhanced Work Projects

In addition to rigorous instruction in core content subjects our students will participate in enhanced work projects. Kindergarten through second grade scholars are members of character communities that share their hearts, hardships, and triumphs in a safe and welcoming atmosphere as part of their school day. Third through fifth grade scholars respond to writing prompts that build upon the importance of their lives and contributions as well as the importance and contributions of other significant people in their lives. A visit to our campus reveals students who are joyfully engaged & meaningfully on-task, leaders who are both friendly and firm, and accomplished instructors who are attentive and approachable. Scholars are celebrated for demonstrating character that improves their lives as well as the lives of others.

Remarkable Teachers

We celebrate successes both big and small and I CAN SCHOOLS educators prove that we have a lot to celebrate. Can you picture it? Take a moment and think about the favorite teachers in your life. Where they inspirational? Did they motivate you to achieve? Did they connect with you on a personal level? Picture a school full of remarkable teachers who understand that relationships are everything. Canton College Preparatory teachers endeavor to truly transform school life by establishing bonds with students and family members from day one.

Canton College Preparatory School teachers have the skills and mindsets to provide a tremendous education in a no-excuses environment that will allow our graduates to have choices in life. Our mission reminds us that all of our scholars will go to high school and ultimately attend and graduate from a four year college. Scholars can be expected to complete homework each night because they deserve to be academically excellent. Additional student work is made available to help parent’s further steer student learning at home. We hold after school tutoring as well as Saturday School for students who struggle. Our teachers also provide extra help for students during their own planning periods and serve as academic mentors who help parents and students find success early on and to provide ongoing support throughout the school year.

Music Programs

Music inspires learning and the infusion of Flocabulary into our academic program provides scholars with an opportunity to utilize educational hip hop music and accompanying books in the classroom. Making a connection between core curriculum and music sets a tone for a unique and unbelievable educational experience.

Committed to the Success of Canton, Ohio

Families who choose to attend Canton College Preparatory School can expect dinner table conversations that are filled with happy stories about college plans, inspiring teachers, and the fun of serving others. We are committed to the success of Canton, Ohio and to the spirited families that serve as its backbone. Our rigorous academic program, unique instruction, and our focus on service learning will captivate our students and families and enrich our city.
