CANTON COLLEGE PREPARATORY SCHOOL TO EXPAND TO K-6 FOR THE 2014-15 SCHOOL YEAR
CLEVELAND, OH (JUNE 17, 2014)— Canton College Preparatory School will be expanding to K-6 to provide a high quality college preparatory education for a new class of scholars in the 2014-15 school year.
Canton College Preparatory School (CAP), a member of the non-profit charter school network I CAN SCHOOLS, opened its doors in Fall 2013 as a K-5 campus. The school experienced great success in its first year: 93% of its third grade scholars were determined to be proficient in math and reading per state testing. CAP scholars scored highest on the preliminary third-grade reading state tests in Canton community schools.
The school was originally set to expand to K-8 in Fall 2014 but chose to delay the seventh and eighth grade expansion until construction of a state-of-the-art location that could fully accommodate the new classes could be completed.
In the interim, the current Canton College Preparatory School building—located in St. Benedict Parish—is being remodeled to accommodate the additional grade level. Families interested in enrolling their scholars in higher grade levels will have the opportunity to do so when the new Canton College Preparatory School location opens its doors in Fall 2015.
I CAN SCHOOLS performance statistics include:
• After one year of attending I CAN SCHOOLS, scholars experience an average of 42% academic growth tin reading.
• After one year of attending I CAN SCHOOLS, scholars experience an average of 39% academic growth in math.
• After three years of attending I CAN SCHOOLS, 100% of scholars show significant academic growth.
